Whimple, Dunkeswell, Beacon, Honiton, Escot

Run Report: Sunday 10th February, Arthur Civill

Kirby and I met up on the road from Exmouth to Whimple. Despite the cold we were joined by Roy, Pippa, Robin, Geoff and Penny at the railway station.

I'd chosen the shortest route to our coffee stop at Dunkeswell. Despite some input from the others, it was concluded that there isn't any easy route to Dunkeswell from anywhere so off we set. As we passed Hembury Fort, Penny decided we must be nearly there because the sounds of light aircraft were interrupting the Sunday morning tranquillity.

Whilst we enjoyed our coffee in sunshine we were entertained by an aerobatic display by a single American stunt plane.

Our route to Honiton for lunch was decided by committee and local knowledge from Pippa and Robin who themselves headed home at this point. A truly beautiful route it was too, Roy seemed to have been this way before, the ridge roads we cycled were new to the rest of us and gave tremendous views into the surrounding valleys.

After lunch, outside Honiton parish church, it was back to more familiar roads as we headed via Weston, Buckerell and Feniton to Escot for afternoon tea.

We said our goodbyes after tea. Geoff, Penny and Roy set off back along the old A30 for Exeter, while Kirby and I headed along the Otter valley to Exmouth.
