Cornwall Trip - Monday 10th - Friday 14th June 2019


We have organised a 4/5 day cycle tour from Penzance to Exeter on Mon 10 Fri 14 June.

10 people signed up by the closing date of 31 March. As we have smaller numbers than last time we will be able to ride as a single group.

We will repeat the format of the 2016 Penzance-Exeter ride.

Participants will have to organise their own transport to Penzance (probably train) on the Monday and will need to arrange their own accommodation in each overnight location (Penzance, Falmouth, Fowey, and Plymouth). You will be expected to carry your own gear (e.g. spare tubes, snacks, spare clothes, nightwear, etc.)

You will also have to lead on one or more days and/or investigate coffee, tea and dinner stops.

Note that each day will involve cycling distances of up to 50 miles and climbing up to 4,600 feet with luggage.

Transport Down

Most have booked a train down to Penzance on Monday 10th June.
