    Haven't been to this one before. It's in the diary!

    I'm interested in going on the off-road ride, not leading though

    This looks like a nice location! I've chucked it in the calendar.

    How come it's the weekend after Easter weekend, rather than on Easter weekend?

    Either way - should be good. Hope I don't have to work!

    Oh! And count me in for a camping spot please!

    I'm cracking on with my diy and will be looking at some route plotting on the Garmin shortly. For your info, off reading's a tad limited on the moor these days, but i'm hoping there'll be a willing volunteer or two for leading some rides. One of my route plans will be a fords ride and the other a roadie.
    For those with wobbly boxes, the roads that approach Brendon are steep, narrow and bendy. There's room on site for you but getting there could be tricky if your box is a biggun. I'll suggest that you liaise with Humbug or Prof as they both drive wobblies and have a good knowledge of the roads in the area. I've not asked if they mind proffering some helpful advice, but i'm sure they'll be happy to help. Cheers in advance chaps.

    Exmoor 2014

    If I'm in the country I'm coming. This is exactly what I bought a GS for. Can't wait.

    I'm up for leading an off-road route. Hopefully on my new R65 gs but failing that the 1100. I'll go out to check out some routes when these current biblical floods die down a bit. Every ride around here is a fords ride at the moment.

    I'll also check out the roads for Wobbyboxes as I also have a very wide Hymer. If it comes to the worst, then park the wobbly boxes at my place and ride up to Brendon from here, only about a 30 minute ride on very nice roads.

    Just been up this way as SWMBO wanted to see a horse on Exmoor.

    Very wet up there today and impossible to cross any fords as the rivers are deep and fast flowing. As soon as we get a dry day I will head back on the GS and start to mark out a decent ride out that include some off roading suitable for GSers, NB it will not be technical enduro/trials stuff but you will get your bike dirty.

    You can clean your bike by riding across the ford at the famous Tarr Steps. There are many excellent pubs in the area and they are used to people turning up covered in mud so likely to welcome a group of thirsty tossers. I will visit several pubs for research purposes, its a tough job, but somebody has to do it.
