John and Mike kindly agreed to be back markers for the day so Ian gave us a briefing which included a warning about 'moor care' and at 1100 we all set off.
The morning route was very enjoyable, many riders telling me that they had not been on some of the roads before. Once we got on to the moor, it was a very pleasant ride through Postbridge before turning into Princetown for lunch at the Old Police Station. I must say that the service here was quite fast considering the number of people they had to serve.
After lunch, Ray declared that he had ridden far enough ( I thought he had done very well actually ), so I elected to follow him back to Tiverton. A few other riders also had to leave at this point but the remainder, I am told, travelled on to Hexworthy, Venford reservoir and Holme before arriving for a finish at Whiddon Down.
Thanks to Ian for a great route and to John and Mike for back marker duties also to Mike, Liz and Ian for some of the photos and the afternoon brief, a very enjoyable day.
Now don't forget the evening run next Monday 18th, it will be at the Jubilee Inn on the old A361, Keith has been in touch with them and they have agreed to put on nibbles etc and wish to take photos of our bikes so please come along.
