Saturday ‘14’ Road Ride – 5th May

This week Russ Parkin will be leading the ride and Neil McMillan will be assisting.

So the all important route then (or should that say cafe stop?) 😉

Obviously you’ll start at the usual place of B&Q Coypool. From there you will be heading through Plympton, up past Newnham and onto Cornwood. From here you will climb Dragon Hill and head for Wotter, Cadover and Sheeps Tor. A lap of Burrator and on to Princetown for your cafe stop at the Fox Tor :lol:. The option then is either turn and head for home if you’ve had enough or head for the descents of Merrivale and Pork Hill :). From Tavistock it is home via Yelverton and the George.

Approx distance for the full route is around 50-55 miles.

Please remember that this ride is aimed for those of around 14 pace. Do not half wheel or pull the group and remember that we expect you to obey the highway code at all times when you fly the YOGi banner. Please respect and listen to your group leaders at all times too. If you are unsure about group riding check our the riding etiquette post which is located underneath of YOGi Info. Have fun YOGi’s!

Meet usual time 9am B&Q Coypool for more fun on the bike! 🙂
