The weather last Sunday was just perfect for a run around the quieter roads in North Devon. We followed exactly the planned route and arrived in time for a lovely cooked breakfast at the Eggesford Crossing Cafe. We sat out in the sun right by the railway tracks!
Welcome to Simon on his Yamaha MT-01 ; I think he enjoyed the day.Justin couldn’t make it as he says he was picking up his new bike – a Multistrada I hope!?Pete then had to depart to catch a train to London… hard luck!
We then headed up on a ‘loop’ around South Molton via Witheridge and back to Torrington and on across quiet backroads to Hartland Quay where some of us ate our roast beef dinner (have to keep ‘fuelled up’!!) There’s a toll road down to the hotel and tourists were being relieved of £2 each, but, ever thrifty, I rolled up to the barrier and told the guy that we had a table booked, and besides ‘ you don’t charge bikers DO YOU!’ (combined with a threatening look!). He waved us on…
Jo pumped up her suspension to cope with the extra weight (only joking) as we set off back via Bradworthy and Holsworthy to Tavistock and dispersal.
See you all next time,
