Darlington Branch Take the Train

Paul led us on a brilliant ride out today with the Darlington and district Honda owners club from the Model T up to Stanhope where we met up with Robbo from Newcastle. We rode up through Weardale to Alston where we stopped at the railway station for a coffee break, then it was off up the A689 to a bikers cafe near Slaggyford for lunch. From there we took to the back roads and moors to Allendale then down to Allenhead for our last coffee break and a chat, the back down to Stanhope where Colin left us and we headed over to Hamsterley by the twisties, through West Auckland and home by the A68. It was a brilliant day and we all enjoyed it as we always do when Paul is leading us.
