A riminder of why we call it red van hill.
video of great days past.
8 Bikers broke the festivities to go on a 100 mile ride on winding twisting dry roads via Tavistock, Roadford Lake, Holsworthy, Bude, Widemouth Bay, Halworthy, Pipers Pool, Kelly Bray, Callington. Plymouth.
A well earned stop on the canal in Bude for coffee, cake and a catch up, good chance to stretch our legs and have some banter. Great to see a good bunch of bikers enjoying the day. Roger took most of the banter without his good wife to look after him but he did pretty well on his own. Great to see Jo out, and of course always good to catch up with Rob, Pete, Graham and Julie. Dave navigated this winter route with Dot as Sweeper.
Until the next time
Dot n Dave are heading out for a Boxing Day bimble on the bikes. Probably heading to bude for a coffee and gander via road ford lake. We will pop into Sainsbury’s about TEN am to pick up any one who wants to tag along. Also pick up at Yelverton by the shops approx 10.30.
Ok so 8 bikers ventured out on the Saturday morning meeting at a very busy Sainsbury’s as people flock to buy a months shopping for the 2 day christmass period. Chris led the way with Pete as tail end up a fantastic route unknown to many of biker, up and down dale, the roads a little wet but weather dry and warm for this time of year, great scenery and literally nothing on the roads to eventually end up in Bridge Motorcycles cafe for a big breakfast, Gang table set up as the normal and breakfast and banter began. It was good to catch up with the folk as some of us have not had chance to get out as such poor weather in 2018. I can only hope that in 2019 the biker gods will favour us with much better weather, this would mean a return of our absent biker friends and a money saver, thinking I need a Winter hack next year. Caught up with Terry and Chris also taking advantage fo the pretty good December weather to look around the Bikes. Ok so after breakfast and a compulsory look around at all the bikes Ian lead the way with Chris on tail end on a fantastic route taking us again on unknown excellent route back to Totnes, Kingsbride and finally a coffee stop at GT Motorcycles were we caught up with Graham and Julie & Roger and Jan. What a good Saturday.
Saturday Morning December 22nd meeting 10am at Sainsbury’s a spur of the moment ride out as it looks a dry day. Chris and Dave are heading up to Mortonhampstead and beyond for a a motorcycle ride out. If you feel the need for bikes, banter and breakfast then come on out.
P.S the official Sunday 23rd ride is still on schedule but only to the hardened riders that can handle the colder wetter weather.
In the picture Ian, Julie, Pete, Robin and Chris fully nourished.
Followed later by coffee and home made chocolate cake at Robin’s country estate. The Guys had a really great day. Picture taken at Lizzie’s Larder.
