Easter “Bunnyhop” Century Ride – Monday 1st April

Did you put your clocks forward?? It’s now BCT – British Cycling Time!!

We’re starting it tomorrow by riding the Teignmouth Century route. This is a relatively kind 100 mile route with most of the climbing in the first half and a fairly rolling second half.

Meet at B&Q at 09:30 – a compromise due to the clocks going forward on Saturday evening! (making the mornings seem earlier!) We’ll then head to Les Deux Alpes and a clockwise loop up over Dartmoor to Exeter and then back around the coast to Teignmouth before cutting back inland towards Ashburton and back to Plymouth.

Bank Holiday Century Ride – Monday 4th June

Here’s another chance to ride one of the “kindest” century rides in the area and a great confidence booster for any of you riding your first 100 mile Dartmoor Classic (at the end of the month!!).

On this bank holiday Monday we’ll be riding the YOGi Teignmouth Century. Most of the climbing is finished within the first half with the remaining roads being mainly rolling. Lunch will be at Teignmouth where we generally buy provisions from the nearby shops and picnic on the grass. When we finally rise from our slumber (and straighten our stiffened legs) there will only be another 35 miles to ride. Read more…
