    Bike performed without a hiccup and always kickstarted 1st time
    No punctures - a relief
    No falls or dismounts either - another relief not injure myself or damage the bike
    New tyres needed - front is down to the canvas
    Big thanks to Chris - 2gses for sniffing out some cracking lanes - I must have done 150-160 lanes and they have done more and he's a route master aplomb and the craic on a night
    Phil for the laughs and craic too
    Chris C for the hospitality over the last 2 nights at his place
    Plus Dave and Val for organising the UKGSER Princetown weekend and the craic with all of you who went to that
    Been a good week indeed and the Long Drive Home in the Talivan ....awaits
    Perfic..
    Perfekt ist nicht gut genug.

    UKGSER-A place where I've wasted so much time, learned so much, laughed a lot and cried a few times.

    Every bed of roses has pricks in it!

    Sixty five green lanes today. Planned an easy day but that went out of the window, had some snap at a cafe on the beach in beer.

    An example of our commitment to help..
    This was sent to an very active member on who knows,whats what....From our forum page..
    """""""""
    Received this email from Martin Caddy yesterday from Devon PRoW County Council

    Please if you know of anyone riding this section of Bridleway could you please pass a message on to who ever it applies too -

    Please stop riding illegaly its not good if we upset the natives especially farmers as they do help in many other areas to keep green roads open!

    It may be someone on here it might not be, if you know or hear of anyone riding this section of bridleway please pass on the message, Thanks very much



    Hello Ian,

    I wonder if you can help, Ive had an enquiry regarding motorcyclists using the UCR which runs North South From Blegberry in Hartland heading towards Blagdon. The owners of Blagdon Farm have said that riders are continuing on along the Bridleway and existing via the farm. Im sure this is just an oversight by a few riders, its an easy mistake to make, but if you could let your members know that the UCR terminates at the stream crossing and that they should then turn round and head back down the UCR, rather than use the Bridleway.



    Many thanks for your help in this matter.
