Who knows what the weather is going to do so a route onto the Dartmoor this week with cut off options for the less heroic or to escape any wind/rain/thunder/lightning. We’ll head out to Yelverton to pick up any northerners at about 9.50-10.00. From there will go through Horrabridge and onto Pork Hill, Merrivale and Two Bridges. At Postbridge a chance to cut off straight towards Dartmeet but assuming sun and enthusiasm in equal quantities we’ll head on past the Warren House and turn right before Bovey Castle. The road winds down to Widecombe and a cafe stop at the Wayside Cafe. From Widecombe we’ll head to Dartmeet via Ponsworthy, Princetown, Yelvertown, Roborough Down and home for tea and medals.
100km/ 2,000m ascent (64 miles/6500). I’m not sure when I last rode this far so don’t be alarmed when the ride leader gets lost off the back.
