This week’s ’12’ is brought to you by Nigel Waterfall.
Nigel will be taking you up to the moor, meeting at B&Q at 09:00 and then heading up through Estover and Roborough to Yelverton, then Horrabridge, the back lane to Grenofen, Plasterdown to Pork Hill, Merrivale and Rundlestone where there is the opportunity for the group to split. Here, those who wish to ride a shorter route can go to the cafe at Foxtor before heading straight back to Plymouth.
The longer route will go straight on at Rundlestone to Two Bridges, left onto the B3212 towards Postbridge. Then ,just before Postbridge, turn right and on to Bellever. Then straight through Belliver to Lock’s Gate Cross, right again and over to Dartmeet. After the climb out of Dartmeet, you’ll take the left turn to Hexworthy, up to Venford reservoir then to Holne, Scoritton and on to Buckfastleigh for our main Cafe stop. From there we will return via South Brent, Wranagaton, Ivybridge and back to Plymouth.
Here is the approximate route:
Please remember people that this ride is aimed for those that wish to ride around 12mph average. Please respect this and do not pull the group on and remember to respect the group leader.
