I have had to save my original route plans for another day to keep clear of storm damage and keep the mileage down a bit as opportunities to get out have been a bit disjointed for us all. Will be back to some epics soon.
This week’s route is a 56 mile jaunt on some well known bits of road around the South Hams. I pre-rode the route on Monday and its all clear of any trees etc and roads in good order. The only change I have had to make is to turn back to Plympton earlier than intended due to the road works on the Embankment. This route I felt links together some good sections avoiding the coast and high moors and gives plenty of options should the conditions change against us. The cafe stop will be at The Swan Inn in Noss Mayo, as I take ride planning seriously I have quality checked all the ale’s available!
Route as follows: http://www.strava.com/routes/168847
B&Q to Ivybridge, Ermington, take the road up past Ugborough towards Avonwick and the turn right to California Cross. Straight through to Loddiswell and up the other side. Left turn and follow the main road to Morleigh. Down to Gara bridge and back up to California Cross. Then over to Mobury, past Flete house and then left towards Battisbrough Cross. On to Noss for the cafe stop at The Swan at 45 miles. Home via Yelverton and back to Plympton via Brixton and St Maurice.
Hope to see you there, John Ambrose.
