Run report from Franks Friday ride day


 

1.jpg

The bike training continued on Friday with a bit more weight added to Frank to practice for the upcoming trip.  The lanes were in a good muddy condition.

The trees in this lane were covered in this very green moss and what sunlight there was illuminated them.  Little Haldon

I do like a good wall.  Constructed years ago by peasants to keep the peasants out.  Ugbrook House

Did I mention I like a good wall

Coffee and Orange Yorkie (not for girls) in a real Dartmoor lane.  Throwleigh

Nice to see the current custodian is maintaining the ancient walling sympathetically.  I think the bailer twine, corrugated iron and sticks really add to the ambience.

I think this was near Bridestowe, quite a long series of lanes with a double ford.  It was very windy out on the moorland.

Lunch stop in the lea of a tree, the rain was intermittent but the Ivy growing on the trunk was enough of a natural umbrella.

Can anyone tell me what the tower thing is on the horizon, the lane was just before Angels Steps

Angels steps, which I didn't go up.  It looked very slippery and I was starting to tire at this point plus I needed to get home.  Saved it for next time.

I did the run back home on the roads from North of Tavistock across Dartmoor as I was meeting someone at 1500hrs.

Frank performed faultlessly and the only repair needed is the exhaust is blowing slightly.  Next week I am going for the full pannier set and all the gear I intend to take to Spain.

Gets you puffing walking up to the church, but fantastic views
