SUNDAY JUNE 12TH 10:30 FOR 11:00

Click for the route

Please arrive at 10:30 outside the Plymouth Life Centre in Central Park where we will ask you to register. The ride will start at 11:00 prompt.

This family friendly loop ride aims to demonstrate that it is possible to cycle around Plymouth on quiet streets and cycle paths and enjoy the parks and river views. You might be surprised at what else you find!

This will be a led ride, where the pace will be as slow as the slowest rider. There will be frequent stops to allow any back markers to catch up. Our rearguard rider will make sure nobody is left behind! It’s a social ride designed to get you chatting and hopefully enjoying yourself at a relaxed pace. It’s a great way to give cycling a go, or allow your children to get a feel for their bikes.

It is just under 8 miles long. There are only two hills of any consequence, one is the gentle climb leading back up to the Life Centre at the end of the ride. The other is a short zizag path out of Victoria Park. On both occasions you are very welcome to push if you’d prefer.

Please note that owing to insurance considerations all those under 18 must be accompanied by an adult.

Refreshments can be purchased at the Life Centre where there are also toilet facilites.

  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. 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 and look for the Weekly Rides update post. This explains the various rides and gives an idea of the sort of level you need to be to attend each ride. There’s something for everyone from beginners looking for their first foray onto Dartmoor tracks, to experts wishing to push their fitness.
