    At 46, I imagine I have a few years on some of you and with my fair share of worn out bits.

    At a few months off 71, few more decades on most of you all. No worn out bits yet, the Bikes okay as well for an 18 year old. What time time is the meet up, lads?
    Too old to die young, gel seat needed!!

    I think you just got shot down in flames there WW

    Damn presumptuous whippersnappers!

    Surely 30 doesn't make me the youngest attending?

    I is coming from Wuster and the "grammar police " is cuming from the smoke. Fink the rest of ya is cuming from down yor way.

    Me to Duck and Fouex? , then to JohnG with ziplex as well? Then on down picking up others on the way. Any way suits me. Open to alternative ideas.

    Being an actual southern yokel, I don't think there's anyone else on my route to Exford other than potentially you WW, unless you're heading east a little to meet others en route? It'll be a trip up the A396 for me...

    Re: Blackbird West Country Meet Up

    Thinking about where to join up for those of us coming down the M5 or across from Bath direction. How about meeting in the M5 Services at "Bridgwater South" J24? if anyone is early they can get a Coffee or have a Loo Break.

    From the Service Area continue on the M5 to Taunton J25, turn right under the Motorway go around Taunton onto the A358, then just after Bishop's Lydeard turn left onto B3224 and stay on this road through Wheddon Cross to Exford. This is a country road that is fairly narrow and twisty in places but doesn't carry too much traffic and one that I use when riding across Exmoor though usually in the other direction coming back from Lynton / Lynmouth.

    An alternative to the above route that would probably be slower with more traffic, would be to take the A39 from Bridgwater through to just before Washford Radio Masts, turning left onto B3190 at the new Roundabout to Raleigh's Cross, turn right here but staying on B3190 before bearing right onto B3224 through Wheddon Cross (Narrow Crossroad here where you have to stop) and on to Exford.

    How do you others from this direction feel about the above?

    Re: Blackbird West Country Meet Up

    Agreed, how about other's who will be joining us. Maybe get a list of those who want to meet up at J24 Services and at what time. Hands up anyone?

    Re: Blackbird West Country Meet Up

    Your first route along the 358 is a nice one John and the one I would use. I actually used this route on a little circular ride on Saturday, but stayed on the 358 to Williton and then picked up the 39 through to Dunster and then hooked a left on the 396 valley road back to Dulverton.

    We can meet at mason kings, the john deere tractor dealers, just after Exebridge if you like TWU.

    Re: Blackbird West Country Meet Up

    I'll wait to see where folks arrange to meet and fit in with one of the those points. It's a mini iron butt for me (don't even want to see how many miles ), so a few clicks here and there makes no particular difference. Plus, still in the middle of this freaking work-a-thon, so can't contribute much thought until the day when I'll just light the blue touchpaper and GO!

    FWIW, must fall somewhere in the middle of the tyros and the old gits... a sprightly 55, me.
    Well, I thought I had some special buttons now, but some people have even specialer buttons.
