Off to Balckpool sands this week, route is out via the Ridgeway through Ivybridge, Wrangaton and up to South Brent before heading across to Avonwick and then up to Morleigh. A short stretch on the main road before we pick up on the fast stretch across to Dartmouth and around to a well earned stop at Blackpool Sands.
Post coffee it’s along Slapton before hanging a right up 5 mile hill (yes it is!) and then crossing the main road to head back through Morleigh and down Gara Bridge (yes it does mean up the other side the wrong way!) to Califonia Cross. From here it’s across to the valley road and down to Ermington and back home through Ivybridge and the Ridgeway.
Pace will be steady and full route can be found here, Total distance 62 miles with apparently only 4,300ft of climbing 🙂
