After my little crash 18th May 2007

I’ve already replaced the tape – shown here languidly dangling in a coil – and hopefully I’ll get the other bits and pieces fixed. One thing I do have to say, though, is that the ride itself was marvellous.
We took a lift into Okehampton, nearly, and from there went down to the bottom of the hill, to the B3217, the Brightley Road. From there we went up the hill into Abbeyford Woods, and along the road to Jacobstowe. Gorgeous ride. From there we carried on nort on the Tarka Trail, and I fell off on the corner you can see a couple of fields below Lower Cadham. It is as sharp as it looks! Then on to Deckport Cross, and right, taking the left up to Iddesleigh Bridge. A pause at Iddesleigh, then back via Monkleigh, Monkokehampton, Exbourne, and southwards. Although we didn’t go straight to Okehampton. Oh, no. My friends wanted to see if a minor heart attack could be induced in me, so they took the road up from there to Higher Chichacott Farm. That hill was deadly – but I lived to ride another day!
