Details of route to follow (sorry, forgot to bring Garmin with me to London) but approx 17 miles.
Great to have Amanda and Eleanor back with us for this ride. A forecast of sunshine and showers saw us all in our wet weather gear but it wasn’t long before the usual female conversation made the weather a thing of secondary importance!
A new route for us all. Seven of us wound our way along the lanes to Menheniot and down through the village to Menheniot Station. Here we crossed the A38, on through Great Trethew and up to Widegates, from where the views north were amazing. Just after Widegates a right turn brought us down to Tredinnick Farm Shop and cafe. Tredinnick is a large farm shop with a cafe serving both savoury meals and coffee and cafe type snacks. They have a reasonable sized seating area and a few outside tables too.
Having filled up on coffee and cake, we set off back through Widegates and then down through Trewidland to amble back along the very pretty Looe Valley. At the cherry pickers A38 underpass, we stopped, said our farewells and split into three smaller groups to head back into our various Liskeard destinations. Susie and I, who had both been a bit anxious about the weather before setting off, agreed we were pleased we had been out with the girls again. Just what we needed to set up the week end!
