Starting point


For the first time since Autumn we will roll out in the last knocking of daylight. Entering Saltram we will cross the railway line and serenely ascend up to the stately home and onto Stag Lodge. Veering off towards Colesdown Hill we lurch upwards and take the left onto the A379 to the Elburton Pub. We traverse through the village and sharply climb up to the new Asda Garage. It’s along Staddiscombe Road to pick up Hooe Lane and sauntering along the lanes to the Golf club. Time to test the brakes before we swoop down the hill towards Turnchapel and Hooe, slipping past Roadford Park and turning into Dean Park Road and Plymstock Road to taking a right onto the Rail trail to Pomphlett Roundabout. On the cycle path over the Plym and through Cattedown to the Barbican and Hoe. Refreshed we will navigate through the back streets to the Barbican. We willl then head back to Laira Bridge and down the Embankment.

As Spring is creeping up on us, it’s an opportunity for us to scan the horizon from Staddon Heights (I know it will be dark but use your imaginations).

Cycle paths, urban roads and country lanes.

We will stop either on the Hoe or Barbican depending on time. We will of course stop whenever the group would like to or need to.

Helmets are compulsory Fully charged and working Front and Rear lights. Spare inner tube.

We never leave anyone behind
