Re: Not friendly ride - April 25th

Exeter McD's at 07.00......Which Exeter McD's (postcode) would that be?
And are you planning to split into groups of six? Methinks a mass of us on the 25th would still raise a few eyebrows, 'cos it ain't a free for all yet?

Re: friendly ride - April 11th

Pity you had a 9.00a.m. start. So late in the day that you missed all the early light :mrgreen:

Re: getting the 2nd jab tomorrow.

Jane (Pfizer) and I (Oxford Astra Zeneca) have both had our second jabs. Neither of us had any side effects first or second time around. Must be because we're meat eaters.

Re: The state of our roads

And now that all the money for North Devon roads is being spent on so called improvements to the A361 Link Road the other roads, that is the good biking roads, will be left to get even worse. When we did Simmo to SMolton the other day the drist was so bad you couldn't see the poorer surfaces until y...

Re: Are you an early riser?

Another question is when do people go to bed. I fail to see the appeal of sitting up in to the wee hours. For me, as soon as it's light in the morning (or earlier!) I'm active and I can't be bothered to waste being conscious not doing anything purposeful much after 10 in the evening.

"In all seriousness I would have loved to but it's too short notice for me to make arrangements." Well that may have been the case earlier but just had a text from our pal Trudie and she can come to be with Jane today so you will have to put up with me after all :mrgreen: Riders list:- bi...

Re: THURSDAY 20th May

I actually set a start time for this run of 08.30 to give people plenty of time to get to the start without having to get up too early. I'm happy to get down to Exeter for Simon's 06.00 start runs. If there's light then it's potential riding time for me. At the other end of the candle I can also do ...

Re: Hi all - moved to the area

Me too in North Devon, North Molton on the western slope of Exmoor. So like Chris goatpants, could show you the local roads. We've a few ride outs coming up, limited numbers until the route out of lockdown eases more. The ones I do tend to be at a "reasonably spirited" pace, perhaps your m...
