Friday and Saturday reporting instructions
Instructions for Fridays ride down and Saturdays Ride out
We have a very scenic route lined up for our ride to Plymouth, weather & road conditions permitting and a plan B just in case.
The meeting point is Sedgemoor services on the M5 (south just in case!), where there are plenty of food options if you fancy a bit of brekkie before setting off.
The briefing will be at 9:45 am and DEPARTING at 10:00 am.
Please ensure you have enough fuel to get you to our first petrol stop at 90 miles. The final petrol stop at Plymouth is 125 miles.
We’ll start with a short ride down the M5 getting off at J23, through Bridgwater, heading to Exmoor and onto our first leg stretch, coffee & drain at Wheddon Cross, parking up behind the Rest & Be Thankful Inn.
We’ll then head further onto Exmoor to Simonsbath and then south via South Molton to Dartmoor. Our lunch time break is at the Hog & Hedge services, just off the A30 at Whiddon Down, where there are plenty of food options and plenty of petrol pumps.
Next onto Dartmoor with a possible stop at the Old Police Station Café, Princetown, depending on the weather and how we are progressing.
When we leave Dartmoor and onto Yelverton, we’ll skirt around Plymouth to the Sainsbury’s at the Marsh Mills roundabout to fuel up ready for the Saturday rideout, then onto our hotel.
Saturday Ride Out.
Meet in Hotel car park at 10:00 for briefing and we leave at 10:30, visiting the local dealership, Bodmin Moor beofre searching for pirastes along the south coast of Cornwall.
