Fully refreshed after Tea,Coffee & cake, we set off again turning right in the village and headed for Ridley Cross, straight on for Shuttaford then another nice chevron for Andy up to Humphrey`s Cross. We turned right here and started the long decent through Hembury Woods passing the hilltop fort of Hembury Castle hidden in the woods. It was then a gentle ride on to Buckfast Abbey cafe and managed to find a table among the lunch time diner`s for our second stop.
After a nice leisurely break and putting the world to right with our reminiscing it was on the road again for the final leg back to Ivybridge, nothing to exciting just the well plodded route back to the station car park. It had been a funny day weather wise, one minute drizzle, then just dull followed by periods of sunshine, still we all enjoyed the ride, well except for Andy E, who thought he was going to die. Only a short ride of 31 miles but plenty of climbing.
