April 2024 Report

After months of rain, the Taunton Group had a sunny ride in Devon on the Granite Way from Okehampton Station.  As the organiser I can take no credit for the brilliant route which was stolen from Jack Thurstons lovely book, Lost Lanes West - P.181, Violets and Viaducts.   All I did was reverse the route so the pub come up at the right time. 

After coffee at the Pump and Pedal we divided into two groups of four tandems.  The sensible group cycled there and back to the pub at Lydford.  (If you reverse the route does that make it back and there?); the hard core cycled 32 gruelling miles of tiny lanes and beautiful woods bursting forth with new leaves.  We all met in Lydford for a Beef Wellington, looked like beef, had the texture of a wellington, and then cycled back to Okehampton as a group.  What fun!
