April run reminder

Hope to see you all at Bradworthy square on Sunday 14th April for the April fools run, Chris has been out to work out a good route so come along, lunch will be taken at the Dartmoor inn. There are approx 45 miles in the morning and 20 in the afternoon, meanwhile have a look at some photo's and a little write up from Matt covering his run last Sunday down to Kitt hill.

A decent Sunday was promised at last, and as it coincided with the monthly ride in to the cafe at Kitt hill in darkest Cornwall, twas to good to miss. Cold, though and so the newly fitted heated grips on the Guzzi made the choice an easy one. Set off down the Exe valley, still with the hint of frost on the road, but it got warmer by Tiverton, then through to Crediton and across Dartmoor, down to Tavistock. Got to the cafe around 11.00. Small number but very high quality!, ( the bikes not the riders ). Bumped into Ian on one of his early BMW's but too cold for hanging about, so after a welcome cup of tea and a light breakfast, was
off again, up through Launceston, then Bude and back along the Atlantic highway for a late lunch. 170 miles in all and very enjoyable too.
