People are loving the Bike Bus! It transports cycle riders in a minibus, and their bikes on a trailer, up onto parts of the higher moor of Dartmoor National Park (where really only expert or experienced cyclists ride to, because going ‘up’ really is uphill, many hills!). So the Bike Bus drops off the riders in the most scenic areas and the group cycles back to the starting point, mainly downhill. Fab!
On Saturday 31 July 2021 the Bike Bus is going to collect riders from Buckfastleigh and from South Brent, then take them up to Cadover Bridge, in the Plym Valley above Lee Moor.
So far the weather has been kind, and the thunderstorms haven’t interferred with some great cycling and days out.
Pick-ups: 9am in Buckfastleigh (Victoria Woodholme Car Park), or 9.40am in South Brent (Palstone Park). The Bike Bus transport and cycle ride is FREE!
It’s a group, social, bike ride and is not off-road or competitive. You do not need to be an expert cyclist and it will be led at an easy pace; however, you should have good level of fitness and stamina.
It’s approx. 10 miles from Cadover Bridge to Ivybridge, with a few hills. Participants may then opt to return on the Bike Bus from Ivybridge Station to be dropped off in either South Brent or Buckfastleigh, or cycle the additional 5 miles from Ivybridge via Glazebrook to return to South Brent, plus the further 5 miles via Harbourneford if returning by bike to Buckfastleigh.
As this page is being published, there are still a few places left, so be sure not to miss out! Book on Eventbrite.
