For those not venturing upon the seas and across to France, never fear as the Saturday 14 is still happening!
This week Dave Thorogood will be your ride leader and this is how he has described what he has in store for you for this coming Saturday.
Over to Cornwall this week on a favourite route and some of the roads we missed when last Saturday’s ride was cut short due to the extreme weather!
So… we’ll head out to the Tamar Bridge to join up with anyone who wants to meet in the car park as usual. Then out past Saltash to Burraton and right on to the Callington road to Hatt. Left here along the lanes to Pillaton, Blunts, and drop down to Tideford (this is where the heavens really opened last week). Over the A38 and hopefully a lightning & thunder free ride through St Germans to Polbathic! Here we’ll turn right along A374 and then left up the Looe road and down to Hessenford.where it’s left down the valley to our cafe stop at Seaton.
After refreshments we’ll climb up to the coast road through Downderry and Crafthole to Tregantle Anyone who wants to get back promptly can go left to Antony and on to Torpoint and the ferry. Otherwise we can go on and turn right round the Whitsand bay road through Freathy then KingCaw and Millbrook to Torpoint and the ferry to Plymouth.
Full route is about 55miles and shorter route 10miles or so less.
As usual meet at 9am B&Q Coypool.
Please remember to respect the pace and the ride leader. If you jump off the front don’t expect to be chased or be shown the way!
