THE PLYMOUTH CYCLING CAMPAIGN TOUR DE PLYMOUTH 2022!
A mix of riders turned up outside the Life Centre for the 2022 Tour de Plymouth on Sunday June 12th. Twenty four people keen to explore the cycle tracks and quiet streets of Plymouth. Some seasoned cyclists, a number of parents along with their kids, as well as a few grown ups hoping to find new ways of getting around the city.
We set off promptly at 11am after Mike, our ride leader had briefed us all on what to expect and what to do to keep everyone safe. The ride was marshalled by Dave Clarke, Andy Whitby, and Jon Stevens, who made sure everyone was safely across any tricky crossings, with Stuart Mee bringing up the rear to ensure no one was left behind.
The ride was around 8 miles and took just over one and a half hours, with plenty of stops to allow for the slower riders to catch up. One of the highlights was a brief side trip to visit the Scott Memorial at Mount Wise, occupying a superb position overlooking the Tamar and with views across to Cornwall.
People commented how interesting they found the route, some discovering parts of Plymouth thye’d never seen before, and how helpful it was to be able cycle with their kids and feel safe. They also enjoyed the opportunity to chat and swop experiences with others. Altogether a successful trip! Watch our Facebook, Twitter, and email bulletins for further rides.
