Rides may be cancelled at short notice in severe weather or icy conditions.

  • This is not a CTC ride. Richard Eales is kindly leading it but you may need to find your own way home if you do not want to follow a fast group all day.

The route can be found here

Timings:

Piazza Terracina    8:00am

Swing Bridge        8:10am

Redhayes Bridge  8:30am

Whimple Station  9:00am

Stentwood            10:15am

The leg from Exeter to Whimple will be ridden at ~13mph

The leg from Whimple to Stentwood will be ridden at ~10mph

A ‘pretty way’ home is planned.

The Tour of Britain web site is here


Sunday rides start at 10 am or as shown in the programme, at locations in and around Exeter. We ride about 10 miles to an 'elevenses' stop at a cafe, where riders often join or leave the ride. We then ride to a lunch stop, for which most riders carry a picnic lunch. We often aim to return by around 4pm, having usually ridden between 35 and 60 miles. It's a good idea to carry plenty to drink and some energy-giving food such as bananas and muesli bars.

The leader navigates and keeps the group together. Average speed is adjusted to suit the slowest rider, but is typically 10-12 mph.

Newcomers are welcome on all of our rides, and we have a web page which gives useful information for new riders.

We want our rides to be as safe as possible, so we have some guidelines called "Our Group Riding Guidance & Principles".

If you have any other questions beforehand please contact our secretary, Lyndsay Kyrke-Smith email lyndsaykyrkesmith@gmail.com or telephone 01392 469 838
