IT IS 20 MILES BETWEEN PLYMOUTH AND TAVISTOCK VIA DRAKE'S TRAIL. It is a wonderful route along an ancient river valley leading to a gentle climb into the western edge of Dartmoor. These are a few people I met on a ride recently.

Val is a ride leader for Breeze and Sky Rides who, like me, was checking out the route.  Hold it? Is that gold pedals I see?

Kathy Taylor took her nephew, Hugo, who is new to cycling.

It is all smiles for these cyclists.


Kathy Morley stops to talk to Colin. Is that a sheep on the bike behind her?

 Actually we have reached the half way point between Plymouth and Tavistock.

Setting off again
 It's Roger Turner, President of St Budeaux Cycling Club with Bill Nicholson of Sustrans. It must be a pub! Yes, they are at the Skylark at Clearbrook who laid on mince pies for everyone

 It's Bill again. Here he is with Sue Proctor and Glynne Miller

What a brilliant day! 65 riders took part. For more, why not read Cycle Tales in and around Plymouth
