Ray's ramble 20th May 2015

Ray should have paid a bigger bribe to Devon highways in order to keep the road to Witheridge from South Molton open!, no matter, as he turned all 11 of us around and we found another way to get back on route. The day had not started too well as Ray had also had a rear brake seizure only half a mile from home, this was soon sorted out as the seven riders from Tivvy looked threateningly at his ariel and with a small adjustment to the brake we were off. The weather for the day was dry even if we were all glad we had wrapped up warm
note the shadows from the SUN!

Ariel goes fine now

Now let's get a coffee!

well that went well

Keith's pleased now with his Triumph
against the cold wind. Ray's route led us up to South Molton then back the road towards the cabin before turning off on the road to Chulmleigh, a left turn at the next 4 X way lead us into and through Witheridge and on towards Tiverton. We were turned off the Tivvy road to pick up the road to Cadeleigh and then back to Tiverton on the Exeter road. The route was then through Tivvy and out on the Bampton road, then to the Black Cat and a return to the cabin, just over 50 miles was covered and everyone seemed to enjoy the run. Thanks to Ray for the route and to Keith for bringing up the rear and to all who turned out, next run is June 14th for the Ron Ley run starting at the Quince honey farm, see you there folks
