Ride out to Hartland Hill Climb - March 31st

Post by ptolemyx » Jan 11th, '19, 07:35

Mervin's just posted the hill climb dates and the Hartland meet is in our patch so let's have a ride out to it again.

Perhaps meet early in Honiton, some fave twistys to Hartland, watch the nutters and have an excellent lunch at the Hartland Quay Hotel then a ride back to coffee and natter in Tiverton before dispersing home :?:

:-bd to the ride Brian, but would advise that lunch at the Hartland Quay Hotel/Wreckers bar might be a tad difficult to obtain, - it'll be packed; it might be worth thinking about The Anchor Inn in Hartland for that. Unless local man Merv' has another suggestion for some local victualling.

Agreed Phil, the hotel is under normal circumstances a good lunch stop. I don't know other options in the area, over to you Mervin. Why don't you come across the county to Honiton for the ride back to Hartland; you could come via North Molton for company to Phil's necko'thewoods?

That would be D & S Supplies, on the airfield - heading north from Winkleigh, take the first left after Zukis and it's another 300 yards down the airfield track on the left.

Of course, we could perhaps meet earlier and go straight to Hartland Quay then do the lunch stop to get to the finish at Bridge earlier???????
