weather was perfect for the South Hams Audax on Sunday 31 August 2003.
There were two rides, the Dartmoor ride and the easier ride down to
the coast and Slapton. I do say "easier ride" but I took

coming down most of the time!
set off at from South Brent and cycled to Harford, Cornwood and down
to Ivybridge, Penquit to our first control at Avonwick Inn.

got to the first control at Avonwick and found the local garage doing
some running repairs for the lads. From here we went onto Diptford
Moreleigh, Strete and down into Torcross.

we had this wonderful view of the bay.

and the next part of our cycle ride went along the right hand side
of this estuary. You can see Kingsbridge in the distance. We then
folowed the road through South Pool, Chillington and back to Harbertonford.

get very dark at one stage but we did not get the rain.

ride, the views and scenery spectacular . Well done Michael Allen
for organizing such a wonderful day. It was very much appreciated.
