Saturday 16 Ride – 16th August

As the weather looks promising again thought we could go with another longer ride, 80 miles of fun but with plenty of options to cut it short for anyone who needs to head home early…

So from B&Q we head up to the George and on to the moors before turning off towards Bere Alston and tackling ouf first big climb of the day out of Denham Bridge.  From here we’ll head across to Gulworthy and straight across to Chillaton and on to Lewdown.  Following the old A30 we finally come to Launceston, but no Pie-stop this time as we head towards south Petherwin and left to Coads Green. Not quite on the home straight yet as we then take a right turn down to Rilla Milla and out of the valley climbing up to Upton Cross and on to Minions (despicable me!! boom boom! :D)  After that Dobwalls and Duloe beckon before we turn to Widegates, Hessenford and Seaton where we’ll finally stop for coffee.  Refreshed (maybe!) it’s on to Torpoint and the ferry home.

Although I’ve sugested a late cafe stop very open to suggestions to stop earlier or shorten the route depending who is riding and how we’re all feeling.  But bring plenty of food just in case!
