My turn to lead the C ride this week, so I thought i would follow in Andy Wright’s footsteps from last week and head out to Dartmouth / Slapton Sands. His ride unfortunately didn’t go ahead due to a C ride no show, therefore heres to hoping for a better turn out;
From B&Q we head for Ivybridge and up along the Ermington to Wrangaton Valley where we will take a right at Kitford Cross, Head towards California Cross and take a left towards Gara Bridge & Moreleigh. We then take the road past Woodlands travelling to Dartmouth. Before descending down into Dartmouth we take a sneaky right onto Venn lane towards Stoke Fleming and with a Cafe stop at Blackpool Sands.
After lots of Cake & Coffee & the Venus Cafe, we will climb out of the cove up onto Strete and descend back down to Slapton Sands. From here we head towards Kingsbridge via Chillington & West Charleton. Taking the West Alvington road we travel towards Aveton Gifford and onto Modbury. From here its plain sailing back through Yealmpton, Brixton & Plymstock, Laira bridge & Embankment to our usual finish at B&Q.
I am bound by “Wife rulings” to get back for our sons friends Birthday party (Need to be back for 215pm latest), So dependent on time will determine whether i stop at the Cafe or not. Therefore i may need to ask a favour of one of my fellow riders on the day, to take over control as Ride leader from this point.
It promises to be a nice day weather wise, so hope to see you all there.
