UPCOMING RIDES IN AND AROUND PLYMOUTH

If you want to let us know about an event please email info@plymouthcyclingcampaign.co.uk

FORTHCOMING EVENTS:

Just a couple of weeks to the Three Rivers Ride on Tuesday August 13th.

Everybody is welcome on this social ride starting at 09:00 prompt from the car park in The Ride (a couple of hundred metres on the left after leaving Laira Bridge). We go to Yealmpton on back roads, then via country lanes to Wonwell Beach, change footwear, paddle across the Erme at low tide to Mothecombe Beach for a picnic lunch, onwards to Noss Mayo, ferry across the Yealm, then via Staddiscombe to Jennycliffe, Mountbatten ferry to the Barbican and return to The Ride at around 18:00. It’s a leisure ride on quiet roads with plenty of stops and a wait at the top of hills for the slowest rider.

Thanks to Dave Hext for organising this.

If you’d like to join us please let us know below so we have an idea of numbers. Hope to see you!

  1. Hi I just move down here from London London for road and mountain bike rides where do ure rides start from I’m near central Plymouth

    • Hi Martin, YOGI listed at the bottom of this page are good for mountain bike rides. If you fancy some down hill MTB rides, try Gawton & Tavi Woodlands (near Bere Alston – you can catch the train out) a day ticket is £5 or membership for one year is only about £30. There is some really good mountain biking up on Dartmoor especially around Burrator/Princetown area (look around for the little purple gate-fold MTB route brochures for Dartmoor, only about £5). Try Plymbridge & Cann Woods (Plymouth) for woodland tracks. For further afield try Haldon Hill, Okehampton, Cardinham Woods, Cheers.

  2. Had my first lesson with Peter Simon of Plymotion, brilliant teacher, free course, but soon to srop. Plymouth Council have done their best but funds dry up at the end of this month.Come on guys, find some means to keep this enthusiastic teacher in his job and promote cycling

  3. Taking part in Love Cycling 2015, means supporting your local cardiac charity Heartswell South West and continued support of our local cardiac patients.

  5. Yogi Cycling Club run regular Mountain (MTB) Bike club rides in the Plymouth and West devon area. There are lots of rides to choose from, so it’s best to take a look at http://www.yogicycling.com and look for the Weekly Rides update post.

There’s something for everyone from beginners looking for their first foray onto Dartmoor tracks, to experts wishing to push their fitness.
