    can I ask where these lanes are as I didn't think there were any boats on Exmoor anymore?

    Not with-in the NP.

    I think we are going to have a 'planned' (in the loosest sense of the word) ride on Saturday where we will take in lanes to the east of the campsite. There are a couple near to the campsite, a few between the B3227 and the North Devon link rd, half a dozen around Bampton, a few above Wiveliscombe then over to Tarr steps.

    Want the day to be relaxed, easy pace, plenty of short stops, challenging in a couple of places but not silly and not overly long. I reckon probably about 80-90 miles total.

    The plan for sunday is ... there isn't one.

    I'm sure Sid knows some of the lanes around N.Devon, I have quite a few marked on my map around Barnstaple but have never ridden any of them. What I suggest is who ever fancies it, we leave the site site at 10am, go explore and ride them together for the first time, have a nice lunch somewhere and be back to the pub/campsite for a beer by 4pm.

    Looking at the map Sunday will be less miles.

    To give you a rough idea of the mileages between sections on Saturday...


    Campsite - 1 = 3
    1-2 = 2
    2-3 = 3
    3-4 = 8
    4-5 = 1
    5-6 = 7
    6-7 = 2
    7-8 = 0.5
    8-9 = 0.5
    9-10 = 2
    10- stream = 4
    stream-11 = 10
    11-12 = 0.5
    12-lunch = 1
    lunch-13 = 2
    13-14 = 5
    14-15 = 8
    15-ford = 3
    ford-river crossing (optional) = 8
    r/c-section 1 reversed = 10
    1R-campsite = 3

    So I reckon 85 to 100 miles.


    As stated before Sunday is shorter, made up as we go along and we all see and ride them for the first time together.

    And I reckon thats enough really.

    Aim to leave the campsite at 10am.

    Went to take the bike for its MOT today and for the first time the bloody thing wouldn't start.
    Taken to the garage on the trailer for them to hopefully find out what wrong.
    Fingers crossed.

    Yeah all sorted and going to pick it up this morning. Burnt out starter solenoid apparently so nothing too expensive

    The weather has been horrible with some really heavy rain for the last week or so. I may get out on Tuesday for a quick look, hopefully they won't be too bad, I can only think of one that maybe a bit of a mud pit but that ones flat from start to finish. I still have to ride one on the saturday route, I know its a go'er as its on the Exmoor Clouds route but never done it myself.

    You still worrying about the mud? Could be worse at least we are traveling there in true tosser style (on four wheels)

    Anyway just approach it the same ad last time we went out in lots of mud and fall off.......

    Makes my day more fun.

    Please note: You'll have to have enough fuel on board for at least 40 miles when leaving the campsite on Saturday morning.
