Saturday 16 Road Ride – 30th August

With dry weather forecast how about a little excursion around Dartmoor?

From B&Q we will head up through Deux Alpes, Cadover, Sheepstor and on to Dousland although we may stick in a cheeky Burrator loop depending on the mood of the group.  Feel free to join us at the Burrator Inn around 10 but we’ll be on YOGi time!  From here it’s up Peek Hill and our first visit of the day to Princetown.  No stopping though as we really get stuck in to the meat of the day as it’s out through Two Bridges and on to Dartmeet and a nice cheeky climb! Heading towards Widdecombe we make a turn towards Cockingford (yes, really!), hopefully the Garmin will tell me where or it’s straight through Widdecombe!  Either way we come out at the top of Haytor and we’ll take the quieter lanes across to Heatree and the Morty road (I know that bit, honest!).  Back on the main road it’s back to Postbridge and second visit to Princetown with a well deserved stop at Foxtor Cafe.  From here a fast blast back to P-town or we can head off Tavy way to add on some mileage, your choice!

Route is about 62 miles and can be found here: http://www.bikely.com/maps/bike-path/Dartmoor-Figure8

Cafe stop is getting on for 50 miles in so be prepared.  As always pace will be dictated by those riding but is likely to be steady to brisk!  Hope to see you there 😀
