Girder fork run June 26th 2016

As I was in North Yorks, Ray has sent me the following write up and Brian the photos for this run:

10 riders assembled at the Town Arms under a cloudy sky and threatening rain, but we still set off, with Ray leading, turning left out of South Molton towards Torrington. After about 4 miles, the road was taken to Chittlehampton then on through the village when a turn was made right to Cobbaton. The road then allowed some great views over Dartmoor as we headed into North Tawton, then the A377 was followed for some 10 miles before a right turn to Atherington. We then turned off this road into the Cranford Inn for an excellent lunch where we were made most welcome by the Landlady and everyone seemed well satisfied. After lunch, we left the pub and made our way to Torrington where most of the North Devon riders left us to make their way home, we then made our way to Winkleigh and on to Morchard Station, here Brian left us to make his way back to Exeter which left just 3 of us to make our way to Witheridge and somewhere along the way we lost Darryl, we went back along the road for about 3 miles and saw him dissappearing in the opposite direction, after trying to catch him for a couple of miles, we gave up after realising he was apparently ok and continued on our original route back home to Tiverton.
A great day out with dry roads all day as the threatening rain did not materialise, I hope that all riders enjoyed their day out and we shall see them all on the next girder run.
