Hope all is good with you.
North London visit Cider Country
Our esteemed branch had been slowly thinking about a trip to finish off the summer and this duly occurred midweek 11 -14th October.
Seven of our most intrepid set off for Somerset on the Tuesday and leaving the M25 early via Westerham used the A282 to get to Loomies for lunch.
Very busy here and we then went via Winchester, Salisbury and Frome to our home for the next 3 nights at the Premier Inn on the edge of Weston Super Mare.
Keith led our first ride out inland which was very pleasant, though we were disappointed that Cheddar Cheese Gorge was closed.
We had lunch at a railway station, and it was very good!
I think the next day was the finest with a ride across the A39 and incorporating (including) Minehead, Portlock, Ilfracombe, inland near Exmoor and a nice stop at a tea shop in Exford.
Extremely good roads much enjoyed. The ride home was the only one spoilt by weather and it drizzled all day. The Premier Inn was good and one night we spent at a nice curry house in Weston that included a walk to see the Oil Rig tourist thingy.
Some liked it. I thought it a bit ugly and it was lit the colour of a can of Tango. All in all, a great end to a good summer, though plenty of Sunday rides to come.
Attended by Dave P, Richard, Keith, Gary B, Mark, Simon and me… young Steve…?
