It seems ages ago since I led a ‘C’ ride (that’s cos it was!), so be aware I might be leading from the rear :).
Whatever we will be heading up to the moor and to ensure a nice easy warm up we will start with an amble up the Plym Valley. Here take the opportunity to ‘Tree Peep’ and enjoy the lush translucent green leaves before the insects and fungi start their feasting and spoil the pristine look :). Yep that also means those who want an easy(ier) life can meet us at Yelverton for a 10 am depart.
Actual route will be:-
Plym Valley Cycle Path – Yelverton – Princetown – Postbridge – Belliver – Coffin Stone (down) – Badgers Holt (up!) – Princetown (cafe stop at the delightful Foxtor Cafe) – Merryvale (down again!) – Pork Hill (yes down yet again!) – Tavistock – Whitchurch – Horrabridge – Yelverton – Home.
This route suitable for those who have limited riding time as it’s fine if you want to head straight back to Plymouth from Princetown. Two options actually. Short one – head back on the way out. Medium one – head back after our second visit to Princetown
As ever looking forward to riding with anyone who wants to join me.
Think this route is circa 50 miles?
