This week’s 14 ride will be heading out to the lovely Village of Lydford before the coffee and cake stop at Lydford Gorge’s Waterfall Cafe.It looks like the weather fairies are with us for this week’s rides, so dig out those knee warmers and leave those mudguards at home.
From our usual start point – B&Q car park at Plympton (09:00am) we will climb up to Lee Moor before making our way to Yelverton to pick up anyone wishing to join us there (09:45-10:00). From here we’ll drop down into Horrabridge, on to Tavistock and then a clockwise loop to Chillaton and on to Lydford for our café stop. After filling our faces we’ll pass Brentor and head back to Tavistock (here’s a chance for anyone wanting a shorter ride (45 miles) to head home via Whitchuch). For the rest of us, we’ll climb Pork and Merrivale Hills and on to Princetown before the homeward blast back to Plymouth and home.
Ride distance: 60 miles
