Took a brisk ride up the former Plym Valley railway line today. Its a steady climb from march Mills to Clearbrook. Mostly tarmacced too. Took my old Continental for this 30 odd miler. The bike is 40 years old but still going strong. Weather was wonderfully clear but a little chilly first thing. It soon warmed up though.

Took a few pictures too.

There are a number of fine viaducts on the ride.

Even a tunnel at Shaugh. This one is ls these days.

They did, and nasty plastic seats that my legs used to stick too...fair family car in its day I guess.

Get yourself down Saltram this weekend, looks like you're getting the sun and us home-county types are getting the cloud tomorrow.

Was hoping for a BBQ too
