Lunch in Bude then?
I thought you were doing the Bideford --- Bude road, that's a good road, fast though so might not be suitable for a friendly

All of these roads can be ridden fast or slow. It's a nice road that's loved by bikers, truckers and police alike.

A friendly is about going nu in the group and helping people with their lines under no pressure to keep up, it's about having fun in a group, sharing the knowledge and not about Willy waving or ego massaging.

It's a day when we start out as a group and finish as a group.

Save the throttle and play the no brakes game. That can be fun too.

See if you can ride that road, from Bude to Barnstaple, at posted speed limits and not touch your brakes.

Believe it or not it's fun.

I tend to ride like that anyway, don't want to keep braking before each corner

Us northerners did a pick-up on the way down last time.

Pub just off M5 /J 25 - Deane Gate Roundabout (A 358) now a Toby (TA3 5LU) can meet you there if you like
Have you noticed that anyone going slower than you is an idiot, and anyone going faster is a maniac ?

be warned, the road from the motorway to Tiverton is under contraflow conditions so there is no exit to the McDonald's end of town, you'll have to go to the 2nd junction(roundabout) and then come back in through Tiverton.
