The 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 the "easier ride", and we were either going up a hill and coming down most of the time!
We set off at from South Brent and cycled to Harford, Cornwood and down to Ivybridge, Penquit to our first control at Avonwick Inn.

Elizabeth and Grace coming up a hill just outside South Brent.


We 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.
The route then took us across to Slapton and just coming into Slapton we had this wonderful view of the bay.

This was taken just leaving Torcross and shows the sea on one side of the road with the fresh water lake on the other


This view was taken just before the descent into the "tidal road" 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.

Grace taken on the tidal road . There was a black cloud over head and it did get very dark at one stage but we did not get the rain.

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