Sun 29th October Extra Ride Out


As it is a fifth Sunday week and the weather has been against us getting out Biker Pete is going to take out a shortish ride on Sun 29 Oct 17. Aim is to meet up at the Costa Coffee in Marsh Mills retail park apparently it is open from 0600 but I think if we should meet at 0900 for a 0930 start – as normal I will be a bit late as I have to do my paperound!  Whilst using Costa means we can have our normal get together chat in comfort I would ask 2 things….

1.  Top up with fuel before Costa.  🙂

2.  Be ready to go at 0930 sharp so plan those coffees and toilet visit!

Route is fairly simple unless there is a better offer.  Out on A379 towards Kingsbridge but turning off before Modbury and running cross country on the nice road that links to the A38 before taking the Totnes Road and then from Totnes into Kingsbridge.  Stop for a coffee and a bacon bap if required in Kingsbridge then follow along A379 through Slapton into Dartmouth before returning from Dartmouth via Garra Bridge and then down to GT to drool over the bikes and kit and say good bye.  I will be staying on roads I am confident are clear and ok and will not be heading off onto any narrow farm tracks as I dont know my way around well enough I think the trickiest bit will be back from Dartmouth over Garra Bridge and if we think that could be too difficult we can head back on the main road.  (I drove the Garra Bridge leg every day for 18 months so I am fairly certain it will be ok).

In terms of speed I will be sensible as ever but aiming to get up to the speed limit and pop in overtakes as safe Id say a comfortable level 2 if the conditions allow.

Hope to see a few of you there.

Good good day out with the Plymouth Bikers nice progressive ride with a good breakfast at the Salty Dog.

About 145 miles in all and dry dry roads. Thanks to the group out on the day for making it so. Thanks to Rob on sweeper. and Graham for route update.
