Forecast is dry with Southerly winds…that should be warm then!! Fingers crossed the Met Office has it right again and should make for a nice jaunt to the North anti clockwise around Lydford. and Chillaton
Route is a nice steady warm up down the Plymbridge cycle track to Yelverton, considerate as ever we’ll not leave the car park there before 10 and hence no excuses for missing the ride for our late risers…you all know who you are!! From Yelverton we’ll head down through Walkhampton and on to Moorshop and down Batterbridge, turning right on the Okehampton road we’ll stay tight and safe as we head on to Mary Tavy. Hanging a left and we’ll be following the reverse part of the Classic route, down towards Brentor and then right down to Lydford where we turn left and have a lovely descent before passing through Chillaton, nice easy stretch now and we’ll be at that lovely fast stretch down into Tavistock…which of course means a visit to Bob’s in the pannier market.
The route back IS via Pork, Merrivale and Princetown then back down to Yelverton and a tight group across Roughborough Down! …….and for those who do not wish to complete the full ride then the option to bail out and head back via Whitchurch and Horrabridge is of course there!!…ride leader will be doing the full route 🙂
