A bike ride up to Mamhead

Was out on my bike yesterday with Jon and Will. We did around 40 miles including the climb from Starcross up to Mamhead – it is a climb that keeps going!

Here is our route along with the gradient profile – in effect we left from Exton, cycled to Starcross, went up Mamhead,  went for an excellent hot chocolate and fruit flapjack at the cafe on the A380,  dropped back down to Starcross,  along into Dawlish and then went directly back to Exton – exactly 40 miles.

Castelli1Interesting that we were all wearing Castelli cycling clothing – it has become very popular in recent years – perhaps because it is very good at keeping you warm and dry! I also really like the scorpion logo.
