Hopefully I can tempt a few to join me on this week’s 16 ride. The weather on Saturday looks pretty promising so what better than a jolly jaunt through the South Hams?
From B&Q we’ll head up to Ivybridge and Ermington before going up the valley to Kitterford Cross. From here we’ll head on to California Cross down to Gara Bridge and the lovely climb out of the valley and up to Morleigh. After that it’s the fast rolling road around to Dartmouth and out through Strete to Blackpool Sands. No stopping at the cafe as we’ll press on back across Slapton to Kingsbridge and on towards Loddiswell. There are a couple of options for a coffee stop, either the Farm Shop or a slight diversion to Avon Mill. Hopefully refreshed, we’ll tackle the climb up to Loddiswell and back to California Cross. From here it’s back to Modbury and home through Yealmpton and Elburton.
Pace will be steady rather than an out and out fast blast so if you’ve been thinking about giving the 16 a go, come and join us, normal YOGi rules apply and nobody will get left behind (well, not intentionally!). 🙂
