Darren Fisher has kindly volunteered to lead this Saturday’s ride and has come up with a new cafe stop and a great route. I for one am looking forward to it. Here is his route:
From Plympton we will head to Yelverton via Elfordleigh and Cadover bridge. From Yelverton we have a steady climb up to Princetown then onto Two Bridges.
From Two Bridges it’s the Dartmoor classic route to Moretonhampstead, then onto Bovey Tracey. Next we head for Haytor and our café stop at the Dandelion Café.
Following our coffee and cake it’s a great decent with fantastic views to Widecombe. After cycling through Widecombe we head homeward pass Belliver forest.
We retrace our route from the Belliver turning back to Yelverton via Princetown. We return to Plympton across Roborough down and Leighham.
Distance 67.7 Miles Elevation 6000ft
Jim Scott has also kindly volunteered to lead a ride a month and his dates are the 20th Oct , 10 Nov and 8th December and then 19th Jan, 16th Feb.
Anybody else wishing to lead a 16 ride is more than welcome and from my point of view the more the merrier.
If that is you please email your preferred date to firstname.lastname@example.org
