Our destination today was going to be Newton Ferrers,
Leaving the Ridgeway we were soon heading for Plympton St Morris and the dreaded Plympton Hill, with Dave taking the lead on his newly adapted electric bike, following through to Wiverton and Yealmpton, passing through Yealmpton we took a left turn and more lanes leading to Holbeton and eventually 'The Old School House' at Mothecombe now an up market bistro where we sat outside in glorious sunshine and drank our coffees.
On our departure rather than taking the coastal road to Noss Mayo, Trevor suggested an alternate route that would get us to Newton Ferrers, I should have guessed there would be the usual obligatory hill, which there was, but hardly any traffic , I wonder why!
On arriving in the village we noticed that the cafe on the green was up for sale which was sad to see. Passing through the village and heading through to Kitley we were to have our lunch at Ben's farm shop, again outside in the afternoon sunshine. On leaving we bade our farewells to John who was making his way back to Plymouth whilst we were heading to Westlake and Ivybridge where once again we left Trevor bading our farewells and carried on back to Plympton via Cornwood. A good day out in good company, and with 34 miles to show for it.
