Giro di Plymouth 2018 – family friendly led ride around Plymouth

Sunday October 7th 14:00
Please arrive from 13:30 for registration

Start and finish at the Devonport Park Pavilion

Plymouth Cycling Campaign invites you to join us on a family-friendly social ride around the parks and waterfront of Plymouth. Discover parts of Plymouth you didn’t know about!
Suitable for all standards of riders, although children under 16 must be accompanied by a competent adult.

Duration approximately two and a half hours at the speed of the slowest rider
Plenty of stops to allow the group to reform.

Bring your own refreshments

The route is mainly on cycle tracks or quiet roads, with just a few short sections on moderately busy roads. This being Plymouth there are some hills but nothing too steep or too long, and we have a back marker to ensure we always wait for the slowest rider. And you can always push!

  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

  5. Yogi Cycling Club run regular Mountain (MTB) Bike club rides in the Plymouth and West devon area.
