I think none of us had quite seen what was coming when we set off on last Wednesday’s pub ride to The Victoria at Pensilva (nice new route, Ann, thank you!) – and good to have George with us. Then yesterday Geoff and I took the bikes on the train to Newton Abbot for our trip round the rivers and estuaries of south Devon – delighting in the beauty of the Teign, the Exe, the Clyst and the Otter and their various villages and seaside resorts. Thank you to sustrans route 2 for help with the route! We were very tired and desperate for some meat by the time we arrived back in Newton Abbot couldn’t wait to tuck into a takeaway. It was lovely to meet up here with the Teign Valley Pedal Bashers as they were about to set off for their mid week evening ride – but we were only too happy to refuse their offer that we should join them!
Home then to watch the momentous events unfold over night over Europe. I hope we know what we have done!
