This week Alex Warren will be your ride leader.
The route below:
Another trip through the Cornish lanes! The café stop this Saturday will be at Tavistock.
So meet at the B&Q car park at Coypool at 9.00 am. From there we go to the Tamar Bridge where those wanting a lie in can join us at the car park at the top of Pemros Road at 9.45.
Once in Cornwall, pass through Saltash and turn onto the A388 to the roundabout at Hatt. At the Hatt roundabout turn left through Hatt village and follow the road out of the village. At the bottom of the descent the road turns sharp right. Don’t go straight on which is a farm lane, and watch out for mud on this corner. Follow this road to Amy Tree. At Amy Tree bear right then left for Callington. Go down Axford hill and up the climb to Callington. At the main road turn right, then first exit at the roundabout into Callington. Follow the A388 through Callington and on leaving Callington bear left for Maders. From Maders go to South Hill and in South Hill turn right for Bray Shop. At Bray Shop cross straight over the B3257 and bear right towards Stoke Climsland. Go past the turning for Stoke Climsland and carry straight on to Horsebridge. Go over the stone bridge into Devon. Turn left then bear right. Follow the lanes to the crossroads at Chipshop. Turn right, then take the first road on the left. In Millhill bear right then left at the crossroads and bear right for Tavistock. The lane comes out opposite the Catholic church. Turn left into Tavistock and proceed to Bedford square and the pannier market for the café stop at Bobs Café.
After the coffee stop, there are several options for the return leg. The planned route goes past the golf course to Warren Cross, over Plaster down to Walkhampton and back to Yelverton to follow the main road back to Plymouth. Keen people (there’s usually one) can do a loop from Tavistock over Pork and Merrivale to Princetown and back to Yelverton from there.
Distance from Coypool and back is about 49 miles.
As usual we expect all to adhere to the Highway Code at all times and remember to respect the ride leader as without them we’d not have the fabulous rides that we do. Thanking you all for your understanding.
Here is a link to the map for all you route boffins 😉
