Murray may have had a bad day
but 21 riders who turned out today for the Exmoor run certainly did not!. We all gathered at the Blackberries in Bampton for a 11.00
start. This was Chris' run so he led
us out on the road towards Dulverton.
From there we headed along the
river and over the moor to
Withypool, this was a diversion as
the heavy rains of yesterday made
the ford dodgey. Next was Exford where a short stop was had, here
Barrys Norton had to be coaxed into life for the second time. more travel on the moor saw us arrive for coffee at Malmesmeade, this all
in good weather so coffee was taken outside in the sunshine.
After coffee we all set off towards Simonsbath along a lovely road,
finally the remainder of the run was taken past the Poltimore arms
and through Gunn and Goodleigh to arrive at Brendas where a
lovely spread of food awaited. It was great to see cousin Merv here

having travelled up from Cornwall
the furthest he has travelled for
some 3 months. After a good
chinwag, everyone went home.
Thanks go again to Brenda and her
helpers, to Chris for the route, to
Matt who sent me some photo's,
Mike and I brought up the rear.
