If anyone has to bale out, please let me know soonest. Harry/Htangye, are you still up up for chancing your arm with us?

For info', if anyone from the above list is worried about chancing their safety by riding to the Dark Side (Honiton :shock: ) for the 0900 hrs start, you can pick us up at the junction of the A30 & A377 (Crediton, Alphington, Marsh Barton etc.) around 0930 hrs, follow sign for Ide, Dunchideock, Dunsford, Mortonhampstead and stop at first pull-in on the left. If we're early we'll wait until half-nine, if you're early, just hang on, at least two us are over forty and musn't be rushed :mrgreen: .

Would love to come and supervise but it's a bit too far for me these days. :( :(
Have you noticed that anyone going slower than you is an idiot, and anyone going faster is a maniac ?

Right-ho folks. Weather's looking dry if cloudy; a bit like how I like my cider so I'll stay off it tonight and, clear-eyed and bushy tailed, see four of you at Smiley's Honiton tomorrow for a 0900 hrs start, make sure you're fuelled up. We're picking up Andy Ming near Ide at 0930 hrs-ish.

I'll have maybe a re-group/P-stop along the way to discuss extending my route if it's wanted (it's approx' 95 miles as is), then definitely finish at The Pit Stop cafe in Marsh Barton, Exeter (cheers for the heads up Jon) for coffee and a bite.

Thanks to all on the rideout today, 'twas a nice day to get 120 miles plus under the Trumpet's wheels, even got back in plenty of time to watch Moto GP. Nice to meet a forum newbie in the shape of Harry on his first SWB rideout today. He couldn't have hated our bimble through Devon too much as he stuck with us to the end.
