Onwards and Upwards, where I should have turned off for Bickleigh, Bickleigh soon became Clearbrook , my mistake, to busy yapping and not paying attention. By now we had lost Graham J. On reaching the A386 road for Tavi' we turned right and the first left leading to Denham Bridge.
On reaching Denham it was granny gear plus as we fought our way up a very steep 20% hill. The next part of the journey led us to Gullworthy Cross and a fast descent into Gunislake where we crossed the bridge into 'Dreckly' country. Struggling up another steep one, we were within striking distance of our destination Kit Hill.
We were now at Kit Hill and the café was soon to be in sight and so was Graham J as he trundled towards us, giving a wave as he passed us. The café was heaving with bikers all dressed in their leathers, with some classy vintage bikes in tow. After half an hour and replenished it was back on the road now heading towards Tavistock and Morrissons for a well earned coffee and sticky bun.
At Yelverton Graham and Trevor headed towards Cadover Bridge whist the rest of us headed back on the cycle track to Coypool. When approaching Plymbridge we were confronted by an army of kids and parents who had just completed a sponsored walk.
At the Ridgeway we bade our farewells as we went our separate ways. A pleasant day with 54 miles to show for it and even more for Trevor who rode in from Ivybridge.
