    Blackbird West Country Meet Up

    Following pms between fellow members it's pretty much agreed it would be good for a meet up. All those interested how about 20th May (Sat) in Lynton? Thanks JohnG. Wales was mooted but a bit further especially for ThisWayUp and Wales at weekends tends to be overrun with weekend warriors wearing Power Ranger suits. (Just my opinion). Besides i've never ridden around Exmoor. A weekday would suit me as well and probably Duck and JohnG.
    Ideas and suggestions welcome.

    Re: Blackbird West Country Meet Up

    I'm up for this and being a 'gentleman of leisure' dates don't matter to me.

    Haven't been to Lynton in years so that sounds good to me. If Lynton is settled on, several of us will be heading down the same roads to get there, pick up people as we go? Anybody know how busy the A39 gets at weekends in May? Used to be a great road but last time I rode it there was a lot of traffic and I kept seeing speed cameras!

    Anyway, count me in ......

    Pencil me in as well (needs to be a weekend for me). The A39 from Bridgewater to Minehead is always busy and most of it is now a 50mph limit. Minehead to Lynton is more rural and can be full of dawdling tourists, but as it is quite scenic, full of sheep and sometimes quite gravely on the bends, it's not a road to bomb along on anyway.

    Re: Blackbird West Country Meet Up

    Hi All,

    I'm up for the run, have discussed with Adeyren, who will probably meet up with me here in Worle. Also being free from work any day suits me. The A39 does get busy but mid May better than later in the summer. Woodwizard is right about traffic but we could go by the alternative route from Taunton over the top of Exmoor through Wheddon Cross and Simonsbath, then hang right to Lynton and on to Lynmouth. At the end of the run, return along the A39 coast road via Minehead. Maybe meet at Valley of the Rocks after passing through Lynton unless others suggest alternatives including Lynmouth itself.

    Whatever suits the majority goes with me, but as previously said, watch out for free roaming sheep and ponies on Exmoor.

    Re: Blackbird West Country Meet Up

    Good point ww, how about meeting up further inland? Anywhere on Exmoor you know of that may have a quieter approach?

    Re: Blackbird West Country Meet Up

    How about Exford between Wheddon Cross and Simonsbath. It's in the heart of Exmoor, it's scenic, has parking, toilets, shops, cafe's and a Pub. Check it out on Street View and let us know what you think.

    Re: Blackbird West Country Meet Up

    Hey!!! Guys count me in ...Exford is great for me too. What time meet-up here? Coming from Bridport, Doset.
    Off to France Monday after, so good group hug before I go, going to miss the Ponderosa outing, so a good trade off.
    Too old to die young, gel seat needed!!
