I thought we would do an old favourite YOGi ride this week, the Seaton Coastal Route. A very Scenic ride with a great cafe stop on the beach at Seaton, not an epic distance, but has a few cheeky hills to get the legs going. : )
From our usual start point – B&Q car park at Plympton (09:00am) we will make our way to the Tamar Bridge for 09:40 for those wanting that lie in. From here we will head to Hatt before going through the village of Pillaton and on to the T-juntion at Tideford where we turn right onto the A374 for a bit before taking the Looe road to Seaton for the café stop. It’s the coastal road back to Torpoint with those wanting a shorter route turning off at Tregantle or going the full route out around Kingsand, Millbrook and St John before the ferry. Approx. 55 miles.
Ian RobertsOur Ethos
- We welcome all newcomers.
- Our bikes are in a safe to ride condition.
- We wear helmets on all road and MTB rides.
- For safety reasons any type of music ear phones will not be worn, this ensures you can hear messages about cars/obstructions/directions as passed down the line.
- We ride with front and rear lights in poor visibility and within normal lighting up hrs.
- We remain aware that we are riding under the YOGi Cycling Banner and do not behave in a manner that can harm the clubs reputation. This means following all traffic rules, riding in single file when cars are behind, and refusing to get involved in any kind of abuse with other road users, no matter what the provocation
- Caring passionately about the trails we ride
- Everyone shares our ethos and ensures YOGi Cycling is seen as an exemplary cycling club
- Everyone brings spare inner tubes and basic tools
- We do not leave anyone stranded so shout loudly if you have a mechanical/puncture we will stop and assist
