Hilly Devon

We are away meeting lots of our family at a campsite in Devon (not far from Totnes). Slightly chilly and particularly at the moment rather wet.

Had a nice ride today. 14 of us had decided to go to Dartmouth to see the castle and have a cream tea. I chose to ride there, total just over 17 miles but 1900 feet climbed (2300 feet descended. My garmin edge 705 found a rally nice quiet route (many lanes covered in mud with grass in the middle) but it was very steep, I ended up walking on three hills (I will blame, rather unfairly, lack of grip onnthe back wheel).

Met up with everyone fine, much easier to park a bike. Good castle, good cream tea and the Station restaurant. I was glad though to be able to come back to the campsite by car.
