Meeting at Brickfields carpark (free parking) we will do a circuit of the carpark and then cycle one of the following routes:

RIDE 1. THE FOUR PARKS: We will follow the cycle path to Devonport Park. After a lap of The Bandstand we head onto the cycle route toward Central Park. At Central Park we can practice some gear changing and hand signals over moderate hills. Finally, we will return on the cycle path to Somerset Place before reaching Victoria Park and Stonehouse Creek (park!).
or
RIDE 2. THE HOE & CAKE HILL SURPRISE. We cycle past the criket pitch to the picturesque area of Mount Wise and Mutton Cove, snaking the River Tamar. Next we take a cycle path to Stonehouse, using the quieter road of George Place we will ride through Quadrant Quay, West Hoe and rejoin a cycle path on Madeira Road to the Barbican. Another half a mile over the bridge and we reach Cake Hill. Surprise? There is no cake.

As much as possible we will keep to flat and non-road paths but inevitably, being Plymouth, there will be the occasional hill which can be walked.

If you are new to cycling, returning or fancy trying something a bit different this is just for you. Be supported with this fun group where conversation and laughter is as important as the bike ride! This ride is open to both women and men. BIKE HIRE AND HELMETS ARE available for £3.00 per person - please contact Louise on 07723 088246 to prebook. We would need to arrive 30 minutes early to sort out the bikes.
