Guy Fawkes run November 2nd 2014

A good turnout of 20 plus riders enjoyed coffee and tea cakes at the Corn Dolly in South Molton for this years final run, the weather was a little disappointing following quite a few warm and sunny days but the showers were light and it wasn't too cold. Chris had worked out a run on country lanes but after giving consideration to the weather overnight, he quite rightly changed too a run on better roads. With Ray and myself at the back, we were lead out of South Molton to Umberleigh then Atherington after which we have to travel over two of Devon's answer to Blackpool's switchback ride as the road falls and rises quite spectacularly. The route then was through Torrington and on to the Okehampton road, when at Hatherleigh we turned off to Northlew for dinner and then end of the run, an enjoyable 33 miles or so. Thanks to Chris for the run and to Ray for 'volunteering' to do back Marshal with me, we had a very nice ride back home which I hope you all did, sorry I don't have any photo's today but I was so engrossed in the day that I completely forgot!. Now please contact Chris or Keith to book for the Christmas lunch as soon as possible, cash or cheque with order please so that Chris does not have to go running around on the day, next club night is on November 20th for one of Keith and Cyril's observation evenings, these are always enjoyable so see you there.
