we normally start with the adventure trail (levelish) to warm up, then the red route until we get back to the road.(riders who want to pull out can at this point). we then cross the road go behind the little chef (top of haldon hill)then go on unclassified trails to the bottom of the woods(singletrack). we then climb up the fire road back to the car park (cup of tea).riders are asking do we stop for refreshments? the only place is the little chef (no bike security)or the crepes hut which we could decide on the day ?? see you there

sounds great - should be able to make it on my 94 DBR Axis & possibly persuade Caro to bring her 93 Kilauea. She won't ride the red route though. Also the family trail is better than it sounds as a warm-up. I did a 2 1/4 hr ride this morning Dawlish - Exeter - Dawlish & am still cold.
