Story
Tagline
The friendly bunch!
Introduction
"We started purely as a mountain bike group 20 years ago. Rides were once a week, on a Tuesday, and in the winter we’d stop and wouldn’t meet again until the spring. 

Soon we decided that we wanted more, and started Sunday rides. Then we began riding on the road during the winter evenings as training for mountain bike races.

Things have evolved since then.

Now we organise a number of road and mountain bike rides every week throughout the year. Some cater for the fit and experienced cyclist whilst others provide for people new to the sport or those who just want to have a bit of fun on a bike. 

To get a taste of what our various rides are like, have a look at the official YOGi Cycling website.

Our riders take part in many different areas of the cycle sport including sportives, road racing, mountain bike racing, enduros and some ride for pleasure!"

YOGi Cycling are now the largest cycling club in Plymouth with over 450 members.

A great location with good views out over the bay. Good cake, tea and coffee and can cope well with our large cycling club even with no prior notice.

This is one of our favourite cafes. No matter how many of us there are (we're a rather large cycling club), we can be sure of excellent food and service. It's a great location too. Plenty of indoor and outdoor seating and very pleasant to sit outside during the summer.

A great location on a good day!! There is only outdoor seating so don't cycle there on a wet or cold day. The setting, food and drink makes the ride down (and the back-track back up the hill again) well worth it.

A nice "truck-stop" style cafe with all of the food you'd expect and, consequently, just the right type of cafe stop for large groups of hungry cyclists.

Blackpool Sands is another popular stop for YOGi Cycling. A perfect setting on a nice day. Good food and service. We never want to leave - and that has nothing to do with the hills up each side of the valley!

(Firstly, we're only reviewing the cafe). This is a relatively new addition to our list of cafe stops. Great food and service with plenty of seating for our rather large groups to sit.
