The ride will be undulating with a few steady hills. We will climb up to Bridestowe and then on up to join a section of the Granite Way before dropping back down the Coryton Valley and making our way back to Sprytown and down then the Farm Shop. There is no planned toilet stop on this route although the toilets at Lifton Farm Shop at the beginning and end of our ride.

We will start on the wider old A30 to Bridestowe before joining the Granite Way cycle trail and then returning mostly be riding on narrow West Devon country lanes which are quiet but have potholes. There will be views across to Dartmoor. Where the roads are narrow we stop if we need to let farm vehicles past. We ask that you to ride in single file on narrow roads.
