Fish and Chips 25/04/15

how hungry are you?
The Devon section must like Fish and Chips as they turned out in good numbers on Saturday the 25th April for a meal at the Welcome Fryer in South Molton. This is our second such a meal this year so far and there is still one yet to come in August, both have been well attended. It was good to see 2 new members joining in as the conversation flowed. I did consider sending the chatter to the house of commons, I am sure it would help as the world was put right in the conversations I heard!. Don't forget the Scrumpy run on May 10th at Ilfracombe and an advance reminder of Ray's ramble on May 20th from the log cabin, see you all there folks.

Mike tells me that 28 riders signed on for the April fools run organised and led by John, some of us had a good ride to get to the start including 5 riders from the Cornwall section who came to support us - thanks guys. The weather was promised to be mainly dry all day though cloudy and a bit windy. Dermot and Mike agreed to do back marker duties so after a briefing by our newly elected Chairman and John the run leader, we were led away on time. The route was quite rural over the first 10 miles or so but then passing through a part of Morewenstow, we found ourselves sweeping past the gates of GCHQ Bude, nobody was arrested or Alienised so on we went down the coast passing Sharpness point before turning back in land through Stibb, Red post and Stratton towards Holsworthy. The route then led us to a coffee stop at the Roadford lake where we could take stock and have a cuppa. Setting off again, we passed under Brentor Church and through Lydford when Johns BSA began to give some troubles, he bravely led on through Okehampton to the end of the run at the services east of the town. Many thanks to John for an excellent route and to the 2 back markers who fortunately had little to do, also to Sal and Barry for some of the photo's. Now our next event is club night on the 16th which is one of Keith and Cyrils looked forward to observation nights, and the next run will be the Scrumpy run on May 10th so see you there folks

Time for a chatter and leg stretch
