12 miles (▲ 310m ▼ 310m)
4 Participants: Dillan Edwards, Ryan Filer (Adult, Goathurst), Michael Jones, Gavin Pearson
We had provisionally planned to ride to Fermoys at Ipplepen today, but since Gavin and Ryan needed to be home by 1.45, we weren’t sure we would have time to do it justice. We gave it a try though and had a good chat riding up Green Lane.

When we got to Broadhempston we thought maybe the café in the community shop there would be an option. The café closes at 12.00, but even though it was only 11.27 the lady there apologised that the coffee machine had gone wrong, so they had turned it off. Well we have always found they like to find some reason for turning it off nearly an hour before closing time, so we weren’t too surprised.

We rode a short loop that was intended to bring us back to Landscove by a roundabout route, but we missed a right turn track that Google suggested and ended up back in Broadhempston again, much to the amusement of a local. Another loop took us past Ron Greet’s tractor farm and up to Memory Cross, bringing us to Landscove by 12.15.

We had excellent coffees and cakes under the sunshade in the gardens, and after a very enjoyable chat we headed home for 1.40.
