    Looking forward to the full report - especially what happened at Totnes on the way home! According to the data there was a bit of back-tracking going on in search of a certain Mr Burns!

    Having thought about it, I'm still not sure what happened on the way back to the car from Dartmouth. We got to Harbertonford where we stopped to discuss the route, the next time we looked around Paul was no where to be seen so we assumed he would catch up. We got to Totnes and waited for him and waited and waited... Ivan then went back to look for him then after some more waiting Tracy went on to get the car after some more waiting i decided to folow Tracy. When I got back to the car Pauls car had gone! It turns out Paul decided to take a different route back to the car! Lesson learnt was make sure we all have each others mobile numbers :-). Anyway we all made it home.

    The ride to Dartmouth was fantastic - great weather and a very fast pace.

    Glad I went back by car! I agree, it was a brilliant ride - really enjoyed it. Lots of fast sections, some nice climbs and a massive descent into Dartmouth. Although I went back by car I did cycle up the hill out of Dartmouth which, judging by the data, was quite a beast! Won't be out next Saturday - other things to do so enjoy your ride wherever it takes you.
