Saturday 16B Road Ride – 25th January

Route: http://www.strava.com/routes/136153

If the link doesn’t work here is an old fashioned description:

9AM start at B&Q. Then we head to Roborough Down via Leigham. After the Dartmoor Diner turn left to Buckland Abbey, through Crapstone to Horrabridge, Whitchurch and Tavistock then climb past Hurdwick golf course and take the left towards Chillaton. Careful on the descent before heading on to Lewdown. This time it’s a right turn to Okehampton through Bridestowe and down to the cafe stop on the B3260 just before Okehampton at the Betty Cottles Inn which is about halfway.

The return trip is via Fowley Cross and back over the A30 and onto the A386 Tavistock road. Here we start the two`s up 10 mile TT to Tavistock for those that wish to, this is a great rolling road and part of the official 25 mile TT route, with about 4 miles of descent at the end. We regroup at the pub prior to Kelly College. Then it’s the usual route back through Whitchurch, Horrabridge, Yelverton, Roborough Down and Leigham to B&Q.

If it’s a frosty morning we may avoid Crapstone and keep to the main road to Horrabridge. If it’s very icy or very wet we may change route completely on the day.

Hope to see you there, John Ambrose.
