Saturday Leisure Ride – 11th October

This weeks ride will be led by Charlotte Malcolm…assistance in directions will be gratefully received! (Be kind her first time leading 🙂  )

We will meet at B&Q as usual and then we’ll make our way out of Plymouth using the traffic free Plymbridge cycle track (or National Cycle Network Route 27, if you prefer). After emerging from the first of today’s tunnels we hop off the cycle track for our first leg stretcher, the hill up to Clearbrook. Once at the top we re-join the cycle track and head out to Yelverton.

From Yelverton we head out to Walkhampton and then bear left to Horrabridge. Leaving Horrabridge via Jordan Lane we climb up on to the moors towards Morshop. At the crossroads we head left and around the Golf course before heading down into Tavistock where we will have our café stop at Bob’s.

The café stop comes at the 16mile mark of the ride.

Suitably refreshed with food and drink we will return to Yelverton via the traffic free Drake’s trail and through our second tunnel of the day. At Yelverton we will return to Plymouth via the cycle track, our final tunnel and back into B&Q.

The ride is around 30.6 miles with a few up and down bits but will be conducted at a 10-12mph average pace.

Route can be found here
