Lynton Lynmouth ride update.

189 mile Sunday ride out with the Plymouth Bikers, 28th Aug 2016, filmed in 1080p. Looking out the window on the Sunday morning and seeing wet roads, grey sky and pulling the bikes out of the garage i did think to myself, am I mad, my bike doesn’t  have rain mode. But the weather man did promise Sunshine in Lynton, and sunshine we got. Thirteen bikers bikers took to the roads to take in this nice long day with the knowledge that we still had a day off school on the Monday. A perfect opportunity for a long run, Dave P took the guys across country all the way up for a coffee stop at Bicklieigh Mill. After we headed upwards through Exmoor National Park and came out on Porlock. Graham took over while Dave’s satnav had a moment, towards and up Porlock hill and then along over the lovely coastline into Sunny Lynton Lynmouth. A good hours stop for banter and lunch, enjoying the sunshine, people watching and a bit of filming. Great to catch up with news from a few of the crew. Back home via a tea stop at Okehampton station finished off a fab day. Thanks to Dot on back marker, Graham for stepping in on navigation problems and for the great company of a great group of people.
Pictures of the day available for future memories.

Lyme Regis 200 mile motorcycle ride update.

10 bikers on this weeks adventure, with Stu celebrated his big 40 on this day.
The weather was kind, and we took full advantage of it, a full days 200 mile blissful motorbike riding.
Brunch and hour and half in at Haldon Grill Exeter taking all the back roads to get there avoiding any main dual carriageway. After brunch Ian took us on some great roads avoiding the bit of M5 to get us on the coastal roads to Lyme Regis. This place is always a great location to ride too. The holiday makers had gone home and the kids back at school meant a nice chilled walk along the beach. We lounged around Lyme Regis for an hour taking in the great atmosphere eating ice cream and telling stories, people watching, before heading off to find our next coffee stop.
Dave P forgot to put this bit in the navigation system which meant we drifted off course bye about 45 miles lol. Anyways its all part of the training.
With coffee and cake at Bickleigh Mill, the cloud started coming in. Pete decided to pull out the big yellow wet suit, which always makes us laugh:-) and thus started the pulling out of everyones panniers the wet pants.
Steve did a great job of navigating us on some great roads on the way home with some great views across the Devon Moor.
We are joined today bye a new face to Plymouth bikers, Dave on his Honda, Welcome Dave.
Dot really getting used to her new bike, Talk of Graham & Julie getting new wheels.

Helen, Sam & Chris and all the gang always in good spirit.

A snapshot in TIME with the Plymouth Bikers

 

This Sunday Ride Update. A wet start to the day never stopped 9 bikers taking to the roads, a hour and 20 minutes progressive riding out on some fab tarmac before we hit Lizzy’s Larder deep in Cornwall for a home cooked breakfast.

We picked up Bill and Anne and had a chance to chat to our new guest Yvonne all the way from Wales. Yvonne is a guest of Phill and normal rides horses, so this was a chance to see what it feels like to lean into corners and have total confidence in your rider.

The bikers hit more fantastic cornish roads covering 150 miles in total with navigation from Graham and Julie. Great job Guys.

We headed over into the Devon boarder again, Robin riding his fab looking Ducati built for great tarmac like this never faulted on the lines of these winding Devon and Cornish roads, but the same reliability could not be said for his Trago waterproofs:-)

Dot and Dave taking up role of sweeper and film crew with only one hand held camera today managed to get just a little footage to take a snapshot in Time of the fun we guys have out with the Plymouth Bikers.

Footage taken with one Kodak ZX1 at 1080p 30fps.

Lazy Sunday Ride Update

Lazy-SundayThe ride out on the 14th had great support from our bikers with a whole range of machines. Dot and I only came out for the morning stop so my story, pIctures and Video are only from this part of the ride. But i do believe the whole day was enjoyable. The weather was good to us and we were joined by 3 new faces to the group Derek & Maria, riding a Kawasaki ZZR 1400 and Steve on his Kawasaki Z1000 welcome to you. The Big Bmw’s, Harley Davidson’s, Triumph, Honda, Yamaha. Chrissie done a fantastic job reserving 8 tables in the sunshine at our breakfast stop, they even put out the colourful bunting for us at The Riverside Cafe Steamer Quay, Totnes. They do a fantastic breakfast so worth noting for future runs. Robin done a great job setting a lazy pace for the bikers, Matt joined us from Dartmouth, Nice to see Dave on his Bmw again, Great to see Steve, on his VFR, Clive and Yvonne on the new Triumph, and all our other biker friends who joined us on this day. I for one look forward to our next ride out on the 28th June.

Pics and video available of the morning part of the ride. Thank you.
