This week’s D ride is heading to the seaside, but instead of those brave enough to head West we’ve opted to go in the other direction. Our cunning plan is to do the hard work on the way out into the headwind and then enjoy being pushed home…hmm, we’ll see! 🙂
So the route will be some kind of variation on a Dartmouth loop with the plan to head out through Ermington, up the valley and California Cross before one of my favourite climbs at Gara. Then it’s Moreleigh and Dartmouth before heading for the coast and hopefully some respite from that headwind! Hoping for a fast blast across Slapton and on to Kingsbridge and Loddiswell for the cafe stop. Then back to Modbury and home through Yealmpton and Plymstock.
Route can be found here!
The cafe stop comes after 45 miles so be prepared! Pace will be slightly steadier as we’re hoping to be joined by some riders stepping up from the C ride, if you’ve been thinking about it, this will be a good chance to give it a go, you’ll be well looked after!
It’s forecast to be a sunny but quite windy with some pretty fierce gusts, so take care out there! 🙂
