Training ‘B’ Ride:
Led by Paul Brindley
This Saturday’s B group ride will take us out across Roborough down, through Yelverton, over the moors to Princetown, Postbridge, Moretonhampstead and then up and over Doccombe before turning right as we follow the Classic route down the Teign Valley. Onwards then to Bovey Tracey, Ashburton and then beans on toast for Mike Taylor at Buckfastleigh station before heading home the usual way through South Brent and Ivybridge.
The onus will be on keeping at a steady endurance pace and ensuring that the group works as a group for the group as we always intended these rides to be. There will be time and space for the stronger riders to have a play as we go down the Teign Valley.
Training ‘A’ Ride:

Saturday Training Rides – A and B groups.
These rides are for people who are looking to develop their cycling performance and who wish to ride in a structured group following good group riding practice. They are aimed at people who already have a level of fitness. Novice cyclists should try one of the other YOGi rides first.
For the period before Christmas and into the new year there is an emphasis on developing an endurance base. As cycling events get closer and the weather warms up there will be opportunities for developing speed, power and to continue with endurance base riding. Fast rides will also feature. Groups will aim to have no more than 12 riders and, to facilitate this, there could be a split into A and B groups. There may be more than one ride and route offered, to facilitate various types of riding and keep group numbers manageable.
