During the 116 miles ridden in this segment I traveled through the towns of: Looe, Seaton Torpoint, Plymouth, Ivybridge, Tingley, Totnes, Teignmouth, Kenton, Clyst St. Mary, Newton Poppleford, Sidford, Colyford, Lyme Regis, and Chideock, You can find places to eat, sights to see and accomodations.
Like many of the villages, Burton Bradstock, had a parish church, two pubs, primary school, shop, post office, beach cafe, hotel, garage, village hall, and reading room in the library. That sounds complete.
This is a virtual tour due to travel restrictions resulting from the Covid-19 pandemic. I find that these imaginary tours provide great motivation to workout inside because the temperatures are too cold for me to ride outside. I also enjoy learning about an area new where I have not traveled.
I checked out the link listed above and found how much I did not know about Cornwall and Cornish people, a Celtic ethnic group and a minority in the country. I have a lot to learn.
For many years I had hoped to do this ride. This virtual journey is outlines my route. When I do the ride, I now have a good guide. The route totals over 1200 miles.
Now I am moving on to the United Kingdom to do the Conqueror Challenge of Land's End to John O'Groats. This will be over a 1000 mile tour. Please join me.
In 1984 a fire gutted the building and I see it is for sale for $795,000 with surrounding acreage. Have you ever thought of living in a lighthouse.
In the 1840 the copper rush started and this area built up from the boom. The area is recreational now and you will see places vacated for many years.
The Brockway Mountain Drive, 8.8 miles, has several nice vista spots to enjoy the scene.
In research, I discovered that this is called the Keweenaw Waterway . It was first dredged in 1860 and has a depth of 25 feet. Locally the area north is known as Copper Island because it is not connected to the Upper Peninsula. Only way across is by US 41/ M-26.
I love my riding days and look to find interesting and informative items to share.
