Soon on our way again & now going downhill for some considerable time or so it seemed, we passed the Liskeard to Looe railway Station then crossed the A38 by bridge. Soon we were on the lanes to take us to Sandplace, & a lovely quite time alongside the railway line & East Looe river. After a mainly descending period we came to the A387, & turned left heading uphill towards the Morval estate. At the turning for the estate we said farewell to Dave for a short while as he was not on a machine suitable for rough stuff in the estate. We had agreed to meet up again at Seaton cafe. I had an extra bit of rough stuff lined up for Trevor, as he always comes into his own off road, & this is what he lives for. I don't think it disappointed. It didn't seem long before the enjoyment was over & we were back on metaled roads & heading from No Man's Land to Seaton by the sea. After a very long descent we arrived in the cafe & very soon Dave turned up complete with having done extra miles to us. So over more coffee Trevor enlightened us about the boat racing going on out to sea, in glorious sunshine. It is times like this you realize what a lovely part of the country your living in. Also the beach seemed well packed, even for a bank holiday weekend.
Setting off with a light tail wind, made for easy cycling even up the hill out of Downderry. Now on top & with views down across the cliffs, this made for a pleasant ride through Crafthole & Tregantle, & not before long we turned left away from the coast, into a lane descending very steeply to the village of St John. The tide was in so no short cut through the Ford today. We had to leave the village & go the long way up & over a short steep hill, then up towards our Ferry in Torpoint. On arrival we soon boarded, & whist on board Dave got into conversation with two people sporting E-bikes. Then on docking we took the familiar route to St Budeaux. Here we bade farewell to Trevor & continued to our homes over the Tamar bridge. A lovely days ride & over 40 miles on the clock
