'Saddle up in South Brent'. The latest series of small group   bike rides for 2017 starting in (or with a joining point in, or near to) South Brent, led by Sustrans volunteers in partnership with Sustainable South Brent. There will be a comprehensive range of difficulty, from rides for less experienced cyclists including families with children, to challenges for more experienced riders (anyone with an electric bike would also be welcome). The SSB Bike Bank cycles will be available for free loan, on a first come basis (see SSB link).

Sunday 19 February 2017: Meet at 10:00am at the Old School Community Centre in South Brent to cycle to Hannah’s at Ivybridge: Join us on a fun and friendly guided bike ride to meet residents at Hannah's School in Ivybridge - a great way to gain confidence in cycling and meet new people in your area.  We'll meet at South Brent with friendly and supportive Sustrans and SSB volunteers. We will be cycling seven miles to Ivybridge following National Cycle Route 2 along quiet roads taking in the beautiful surroundings and enjoying the countryside views then return the same way for 1pm. We'll spend time at Hannah's School to meet and engage with their local community see: www.sustrans.org.uk/events/ivybridge-guided-bike-ride.

Wednesday 22 February 2017: Dartmoor Way 'Dark Skies Ride' – night time guided bike ride from 6.30 – 8.30pm. Meet at The Watermark Centre, Erme Court, Leonards Road, Ivybridge, PL21 0SZ and join our friendly and supportive Sustrans and PL21 Transition Initiative volunteers for a beautiful night time ride along the Dartmoor Way and discover your local area by starlight. We will be cycling six miles to Cornwood for light refreshments at the local Inn, then return the same way. You will sense the countryside, listen to rivers rushing beside you and you may even hear owls hooting! A fantastic opportunity for a mini adventure, meet new people and help you gain confidence. This is a true dark sky area so good lights and warm clothing are essential. Rides are open to anyone but you need to be reasonably fit and be prepared for changeable weather. The event must be pre-booked 24 hours beforehand and will be run on another date if there is an adverse weather forecast – see www.sustrans.org.uk/events/dartmoor-way-nighttime-guided-bike-ride.
