This week, it’s my turn to lead and, as you haven’t ridden this route since the last time I led, I’ll lead the Noss Mayo route again:
Starting at B&Q at 09:00 we’ll head out through Plympton to Ivybridge and then turn right towards Ermington. From Ermington we’ll take the Yealmpton road and then turn left onto the Mothecombe and the coast road toward Noss Mayo. Just before Noss Mayo we turn right through Membland and then Bridgend where we’ll encounter the first steepish hill of the day into Newton Ferrers. Once out of Newton Ferrers we’ll take a left turn down to Puslinch Bridge and up the second steepish hill to Riverford Farm, our cafe stop.
After the cafe stop we’ll turn left and ride through Yealmpton and turn left after we cross the River Yealm (I’ve been told that this is a hill) and follow the road all the way back to Smithaleigh and then Plympton.
The total distance is 31 miles (cafe stop is at the 21 mile mark)
