After a cuppa and a briefing from Keith we set off with Chris and myself doing back marker duties. Keith lead us out of Wheddon cross on the Taunton road for a while before turning off to Gupworthy, turns right and left saw us heading to Watchet, Wiveliscombe and Bampton before coming across the Lutrow Inn where we turned off towards Skilgate and Petton. Now after Petton and Clayhanger we came across the twists and turns which Keith had warned us about in his briefing, in fact there were quite a few sets of these, had we been going downhill at the time I would almost have thought we had strayed on to a downhill ski course!.Finally however we did safely make it to Uplowman and our lunch stop at the Redwoods Inn where we were well looked after.
The afternoon route was through Tiverton and out on the Rackenford road before turning off towards Creacombe and Meshaw for the run to our destination at the Quince honey farm. It remains for me to thank Keith for todays route, to Chris for taking the rear spot with me and to commiserate with Dermot who did return home ok and has found out why he had no spark, I did suggest he bought a Triumph for future club runs but he feels that would not be a good idea though I can't think why!.
Our next outing will be an evening meet April 17th at the Sportsmans Inn for 7pm, please support these evening trips as they are a chance for the people who can't always make a Sunday run, a chance to get a ride out.
