Most people had a chilly ride to the start at Whiddon Down despite the sunshine. Winter was still hanging on.
After a coffee and a chat in the cafe however the weather began to warm up. A good field of 27 bikes started and finished the run with no problems at all.
It was good to see a large contingent from Cornwall. Some of whom had ridden all the way from Newquay
Another fine route from Ray lead us through Chagford then up onto Dartmoor and over to Widecombe in the Moor. From here we travelled over the moors to Bovey Tracey, a splendid road with fine moorland views.

We managed to get to Bovey about mid-day and so avoided the Mothering Sunday rush.After a leisurely lunch we made our way, via Mortonhampstead, back to the finish at Whiddon Down. A great start to this years calendar!

Devon Section AGM

The next club night is on March 18th at The Town Inn, South Molton. This will be the third evening held at our new venue. Both previous meetings have been well attended with attendees enjoying themselves so much they have been slow to leave at the end of the evening. Great!

This month it is the AGM and we hope that as many members as possible will attend, as this is the opportunity for you to put your suggestions and questions to the committee.

Spring Run

I hope you all have your bikes ready for the coming riding season which starts with the Spring Run on Sunday week, March the 14th.

We are starting from Whiddon Down Services, setting off at 11.00am. Ray has arranged a route around Dartmoor with a Pub lunch stop. If the route is as good as last year, and the weather is not as bad, it should be a good day out.

New Tabards

The section has had new tabards produced, as shown. As you can see they are the zip-up type, not velcro fastened. They have a special pocket for a mobile phone plus two pockets for the usual junk that motorcyclists carry. Offering good value at £10, the first batch was all sold at the last club night. We now have some more in stock in sizes L, XL,and 2XL. These will be on sale at the March run on March 14th and at the AGM on March 18th.
