The training ride will be 3 sections each about 1:00 to 1:30 hrs in duration of about 30 miles each – total 90ish mile.
This may not seem very much but it will still be challenging – Observation, Anticipation and Planning will be fully tested as we negotiate past all the Fixed Moving and Environmental hazards.
The route is Costa Coffee M5 J27 down the B3181 to Exeter then A379 Dawlish to Teignmouth where we will have a food and comfort stop at the Railway Station cafe.
2nd leg will take us along A381 & A382 to Bovey Tracey and to Moretonhampstead where we turn onto the B3212 to Ide where we will bunch up and ride the short distance to Bridge Motorcycles, Alphington Road Marsh Barton for another snack and drink.
3rd leg will be up the A377 to Crediton where we turn onto the A3072 (aka The Toboggan Run) to Bickleigh & Tiverton where again we will form up and ride line of sight down the A361 Dual Carriageway back to our start point at Cost Coffee.
It is the bank holiday weekend and all the pubs will be rammed with tourists so that is why we will only do snack stops – saying that the Bread Pudding at Teignmouth Railway Station will keep anyone going for several days!
I have booked the weather to be warm and sunny – so take plenty of water to drink. Umbrellas not required!
