Last minute breakfast bimble - Sunday 14th.

Post by Robbo87 »

Sunday 14th August - I'm making an early (for me) start from home and aiming for a 0900 hrs breakfast in Tiverton Wetherspoons (The White Ball Inn), car/bike park is on West Exe Street EX16 5DQ - https://www.google.co.uk/maps/place/Wes ... -3.4910439

If anyone wants to join me I'll be leaving Ottery St Mary at 0700 hrs, then it's A30, M5 south, A30 west, off at the first exit them the usual TT route via Whiddon Down to Winkleigh where I'll be by the garage on the crossroads of the A3224 and B3220 by around 0800 hrs - EX19 8JJ https://www.google.co.uk/maps/place/Mid ... d-3.942372 From there it's across country to Tivvy. After brekky I'm heading for the Blackdown Hills to Chard, then home.

Ta for tagging along Roy, good to have your company :) . Yeah, it was a decent ride wasn't it, and we made Tivvy 'spoons bang on time at 0900, and a cracking brekky was had.
Now you know I don't do traffic; I might take the odd back road excursion but look on it as my way of injecting a learning curve into the day :)): .

Looks like either Chard or outside the local authority shelter for the vulnerable.
