2310 Sun 5th Jun Hope Cove Cream Tea Day (no chips, sorry) - Mash
The ride will start from Spray Cottage, Inner Hope Cove near Kingsbridge – about an hour from Torquay. Please park in the car park opposite the Sun Bay Hotel.
Head for Kingsbridge on A381 but before you get into Kingsbridge, at a mini roundabout, follow signs for Salcombe. You will go through Churchstow then towards Salcombe rejoining the A381. After about 1.5 miles, look for sign for Hope Cove on the right and come down the lane until you are almost at the beach, but look for a left turning to Inner Hope, follow that road up and over the hill – the Sun Bay Hotel will be on your right. Spray Cottage is at the bottom of the hill on the left so come down on bikes.
From 2.00pm onwards there will be Cream Teas in the cottage garden, donations to go to the Hope Cove Lifeboat. I am sorry there will not be anything savoury this time.
This is only on-road cycling as there is very little legal scope for off-road riding, but we have been known to do the cliff paths if there are one or two off-roaders!!

The campsite is booked www.littlemargate.co.uk for Friday 1 and Saturday 2 July. Just turn up, no need to pre-book. There are only 6 hook ups so it'll be first come first served.
Saturday there will be the option of the flowy trails of Lanhydrock and Cardinham Woods or for the hardcore there are the more downhill trails of Grogley and Bishops Woods. There's no set road ride, but the Camel trail is not far from the campsite, so could be an option for the roadies?
On the Sunday we'll decamp up to Minions and meet at the Cheesewring Hotel on the beautiful southern edge of Bodmin Moor.
There will be a road ride under the guidance of Nora (Batts) who grew up in the area and knows it well.
Off roaders will be treated to Manky's epic tour around Caradon Hill, with techy sections in the old mine workings and a fabulous grassy descent from the TV mast.

There really will be something for everyone, so hope to see you all there.
N.B. For those not going to Bodmin, there will be a ride on the Sunday from the Ship Inn at Cockwood - Sticky Dicky.
