Day 1: 24th May 2010. Newton Abbot to Ladock - 85.6 miles.
Day 1 of the big bike ride started out hot and sticky, not ideal for me, and I was still suffering from the dregs of a head cold which had been hanging around for about 5 weeks!
The first 35 miles to Plymouth went well, taking about 2hrs 40 min.
I had lunch at the works canteen, and rode to the Railway station to meet Euan who had travelled up from Cornwall.

GB & euan on Torpoint Ferry From Torpoint we took the ferry and the A374 from Saltash and followed the B3427 along the coast to Seaton, where we had a coffee in the cafe, and Euan had a fag break and indulged in a bit of mine-sweeping.
