Robin Carr has kindly come forward to navigate us on a fantastic route for the coming Sunday.
“Regarding the route I’m not at all familiar with Woolacombe area so not sure about the roads
a voyage of discovery! Level 3
I have sussed out a little cafe on the Upper Tamar Lake which would accommodate us
small cooked brekkie and drink £4.50.
They open at 10.30 and would like to see us!
The less adventurous riders may like to call it a day here and pick their way back.
We head across country to Torrington. Do the ‘dipper’ road then join A361 to Barnstaple.
Join the A39 out of Barnstaple and quickly take the B3230 via Muddiford to join the A3123
where we head West to Woolacombe via B3343.
Lunch at the Boardwalk Hotel on the seafront. I’ve talked to the car park people and as long
as there aren’t too many bikes we can pull into
a parking place free (just by the barrier). There are seats outside or they would reserve a
table inside if we want. You can Google the menu – a bit pricy but
won’t need much after a cooked brekkie!
Coming back I wondered about the A3123 followed by A399 back to South Molton.
Don’t know the roads so unsure whether they’ll be busy.
Smaller roads we know lead us back – we could either have afternoon tea at Garden Centre Eggesford or
Zukis at Winkleigh?”
P.S Please remember to mark the junctions for your fellow riders.
Also if you know a great route and would like to come forward let me know. you set your own pace, eat and drink at your favourite spots.
