Thank-you.

Don't forget......ANYONE can organise and run a rideout.

Well, here's a few stretches that can be fun on pretty much any size of bike ......

B3193 Chudleigh - Dunsford (Teign Valley Road)
B3357 Tavistock - Ashburton (if you aren't too fussy about the blanket 40 on Dartmoor....)
A384 Buckfastleigh - Dartington
A382 Bovey Tracey - Whiddon Down
(Old) A30 Exeter - Tedburn - Whiddon Down - Okehampton
A386 Sourton Cross - Tavistock
A390 Tavistock - Gunnislake - Callington - Liskeard
A388 Callington - Launceston
B3254 Liskeard - Launceston
A39 pretty much all the way from Bridgwater to Indian Queens
Of all the things I have ever lost, I miss my mind the most .....

Badger me old fruit, I think the memories going ........ we did the bit from the bottom of the Probus bypass throiugh Tresillian and into Truro this year ....... all that would be required is to turn right at the top of the bypass and up to the top of that section :wink:

Yeah, its more about if we have time, as towards Probus and onwards its very twisty and it may take us out of the way too much. Its the second part though, that is most FUN ;) ;)

Just giving this thread a little nudge now as the weather begins to improve and the clocks are due to go forward at the end of the month!

Why not share some of YOUR fav routes + roads with other SWBers? :)):

Anything Weston or further north I find a bit dull, unless you head over the bridge :wink:

Mendips, over towards Frome via the back roads, Mid Somerset Somerton Ilchester, or head into top of Dorset....you need to get a map out, pick some of the minor roads and explore
