Evening run 140923


After, what for me was, a lovely dry evening ride to the Portsmouth Arms on Tuesday evening, I was met with two dejected riders, Andy and Nick, sat outside with nothing to eat or drink as the pub was closed due to illness of the landlord. However some discussion's took place of a useful nature when John rolled up declaring he was hungry!. Andy recalled that it was a bike night at Barnstaple so the northerners set off to join them, I on the other hand headed back home via Crediton where I noticed many bikes outside the cafe in the high street there.

It was a shame since this was our last evening ride this year, although those of us who manage to attend the evening meets seem to enjoy the ride and company. Apologies to Tony who apparently arrived at the Portsmouth arms just minutes after we had all left. There doesn’t seem to be the attendance these meets deserve, perhaps 2024 will be better.

Club night next week is the AGM please make an effort to attend, it’s your chance to have your say and maybe make suggestions for the way forward, our next run is the Ruby run from Jonesey’s cafe at Winkleigh on the 8th October usual time folks.
