Rode from there down to Bridge 15 .............. and thence to 14 and 13 at the Drumbridges Roundabout over the A38.
NA pointed out - from local knowledge - that there's a cycle bridge just north of it. This means that I have to re-number my records! :D :D
Bridge 15 in reality is Bridge 16.



That made me laugh out loud Mick, fair play to you, proper commitment re-numbering the records !
Sounds like you had a great day.

Hi,
Been a good day.
Mick seemed pleased to see me :)
Weather perfect.
Riding was hard enough, averaged over 70% effort for the 7 hours in the saddle.
Riding time with mick was more laid back which helped.

I did rib Mick on the software he used to design the course after the third pass of one bridge............ :mrgreen:

We got to the top of Telegraph Hill and Mick says how fast you going to go?
50...........I hit 48.3...... :P
We did manage a sarnie in Chudliegh before big push up Haldon hill.
Didn't help much as we ended up walking :lol:
After leaving Mick I decided to cycle back on the Exe Trail to Dawlish, headwind all the way.
glad to get home was about 2 kg lighter, pizza a few cans and ice cream :)
