15th July (Sunday) 08:30, Location – Poldice, Grade 5, Distance 12-14 miles

Ride Setter – Mike

Ride Leader – Chris

 

A possibly dusty summer blast around Mike’s Poldice explorer. Plenty of lines through the valley including Pram Line, Poison, Original Ridge, Secret Valley, Hidden Garden, and a bit of XC around Goon Gumpas. There will be some unavoidable jumps and be sure you’re confident with steep rocky downhills. There will be lots of climbing (1500 to 2000ft) and no pushing up allowed! Early start.

Andy is taking over one of Ben’s rides here, some cracking xc out of Callington. It has been a while since we’ve been around this loop so expect some great riding out of Callington, up Kit Hill and around the Tamar valley down to Cotehele Quay.

Good fun riding round here as a club. Meet in the Cardinham carpark and ride up the road to Lanhydrock for a lap of everything, including a bit of racing down the doubletrack. Then roll back down to Cardinham for a lap before grabbing a cake in the café. Groomed trails and lovely manicured berms!

12th August (Sunday) 09:00, Location – Lydford, Dartmoor, Grade 2-3, Distance 20 miles +

Ride Setter – Andy

Ride Leader – Andy

 

Andy’s big xc loop around the west of Dartmoor. He is going to show us a 20 mile club ride heading south out of Lydford. After the club ride there may be the option of an additional 30 mile loop north if the timing is good and you’re feeling strong! There is a lot of uphill on the moor, so expect some long, slow, remote climbing. There will be a few descents too. The open moor is quite wild and there will be no food stops on the way so pack accordingly, but there will be a pub at the finish. A good Dartmoor adventure. Pedals down 9am.

Another chance to ride along the west coast. Starting at Wheal Ding Dong we’ll head across the moors up to the north coast, with cracking riding along the coast all the way past Cape Cornwall. Expect plenty of climbing, lovely views, a spot of cake, some tight twisty coast path to focus the mind, and generally great riding.
