Social: Badminton

4 Participants: Ziggy Clark, Dillan Edwards, Michael Jones, George Rogers
A mix-up at Ashmoor meant that no courts had been reserved for us tonight, but as there were only four of us we managed to play some games of doubles in the gymnasium despite the restricted height.

Courts have been rebooked again for the next two weeks so we will be back to normal next Friday.

Morning ride: Converted to Social
Showers and sunny spells
3 Participants: Dillan Edwards, Michael Jones, Jude Norris
The heavy snow that covered the South West on Thursday was melting fast and the main roads were all clear this morning, but there was still snow on the lanes and there was some rain around so we decided to arrange a badminton social today. We played at Ivybridge Leisure Centre and concluded a great morning with a Costa at Marsh Mills, Plymouth. There was a computer games social when we got back until 4pm.

Social: Cancelled

0 Participants: No participants recorded for this event
Heavy snow yesterday afternoon and overnight had left everyone pretty much snowed in. Leisure centres were all closed but nobody could get their cars out even if it had been open. We had no choice but to cancel the social this week, stay at home and make the most of this unusual spell of wintry weather.

Day ride: Café 3 Sixty, Bovey Tracey
Cold and cloudy, sunny later
25 miles (▲ 473m)
3 Participants: Dillan Edwards, Michael Jones, Jude Norris
Conditions really were cold and grey this morning, with temperatures around 3 degrees, and John and George were down with flu, but we had set our target for the new Café at Bovey Tracey so that is where we headed.

We just about survived the cold through Ashburton and Bickington, and by the time we reached Bovey the sunshine was breaking through the cloud.

Café 3 Sixty is a new café that caters primarily for cyclists. It is so large and spacious that you can take your bikes inside and tether them to the purpose-built indoor racks. There is also a cycle repair shop in the building. We were very grateful for the toasty warm stove while we waited for our coffees and cakes to be brought to us. It’s amazing how popular the café has become during the two months it has been open.

Next stop was Bovey Park, where Dillan investigated the outdoor exercise machines that were dotted around the lawns near the river. We then rode through Brimley and on up to Ilsington where Sue and Jude entertained us at their home for half an hour.

It was still cold as we left but the sun was making everything look perfect, so our ride back to Buckfastleigh via Bickington was very enjoyable.
