Christmas Eve ride out, With pictures and words (some)


It seems a very long time ago, almost a different world away now, but here is the result of our Christmas Eve ride out for the Devon Air Ambulance.

This letter was sent to Chris and Jacki, but they were already in New Zealand by then, and subsequently got stuck there.

The good people of Totnes, once accosted, were generous but, perhaps we could try somewhere else next year.

Thanks again to all who braved the rain.

Christmas Eve ride out, With pictures and words (some)


Christmas Eve dawned a little grey and overcast but with a feeling of trepidation we (BSA B40 and mysel) set of for Exbourne cross to meet the other hardy, and generous souls, to raise money for the Devon Air Ambulance. 

You never know when you might need it boys !!!

After the usual bike unloading, helpful comments and topping up with fuel, TTR Steve, this is his real name, led us off along the main road and down our first lane.  Half the group went one way and the remaining group having scooped up a Honda en route were left wandering where they had gone.

Order soon broke out after we were reunited and Steve told everyone about his plans. After this the assembly of 15 assorted bikes and riders flowed like a colourful but noisy snake around the beautiful but very wet Devon countryside.

We stopped for Fuel, coffee mince pies and tin rattling at Whiddon down, then carried on towards Chagford.

The good people of Chagford didn't let us down with their generosity and the sun even made an appearance.

Mindfull of the weather and the fact that most of us still had to buy our Christmas presents, we scaled Fingle (if Carling made lanes etc etc etc) and headed back to Exbourne, via Rat Coomb, where a little pre Christmas mud slinging was carried out by the children.

Along the way we waved to the people who seemed genuinely pleased to see us and even stopped for a stirrup cup to keep us going in our wet clothing.

The ride was attended by a variety of abilities and machinery, but most of all the ride was a success in raising valuable funds for a great cause, producing a fitting start to the Christmas festivities, and being a realy good day out.

Thanks to Steve for organising it, thanks to all that came and enjoyed a great day and merry Christmas,happy new year to you all.

Trevor
