The Friday series are quite challenging rides with some steep hills. We start at Coypool and then take various routes to explore Dartmoor. For example - Up the Plymouth Trail and turn off at Grenofen and take the steep hill onto the moor towards Cadover, turning to Sheepstor and then around Burrator reservoir before going to Walkhampton, Horrabridge, Longash Garden centre cafe (for a bite to eat) then freewheeling downhill back to Coypool. Alternatively we may turn right at Clearbrook and take the two steep hills to Burrator and on to Walkhampton etc. Another alternative could be to Tavistock, Peter Tavy, Walkhampton, Yelverton, home. As a change we will set off through Plympton and do a circular route through Cornwood, Sparkwell etc. In poor weather we will take short cuts and make cafes the priority. We may also take the ferry to Torpoint and explore Cornwall. Please bring spare inner tubes etc.

The Friday rides are challenging rides using mainly country lanes with plenty of hills. A road bike is the most suitable but a hybrid with road tyres will be fine. We go at a pace to enjoy the wonderful views of Dartmoor.

We use mainly quiet country roads but sometimes need to use busier roads.

We will always find a café stop about two thirds through the ride.

Please wear helmets and bring inner tubes to fit your tyres. A snack will be useful as it will be a while before we get to the café.

We never leave anyone behind
