South Hams 100 & Grunters 150 on 7 September 2008

30 riders successfully completed the 100k Audax and 17 riders completed the 150k

Tamar 100 on 10 August

12 riders started the Tamar 100k reliabilty ride from Carkeel Services near Saltash heading northwest for a clockwise circuit of East Cornwall with stops at Minnions under the shadow of Caradon Hill transmitter and Tesco at Launceston. Following severe downpours the previous day, which continued into the night, the morning started with some showers before brightening up for the start but still with a chilly wind. Fortunately the narrow gritty lanes had mainly dried out but the Ford after Pillaton was the deepest we had seen resulting in some early wet feet. Andy Endicott riding with his brother Mark, who was riding in his second ever event following his debut in the Devon Delight, and nephew Simon with Robin Griffin in tow was the first to puncture in the first few miles. The post office cafe at Minnions were as welcoming as ever dispensing enormous bacon rolls to the hungriest of the riders. The revised route from last year avoided the A30 arriving at Altarnun, the scene of demonstrations 2 days earlier by villagers opposing the planned post office closure, with some tricky lanes, particularly the descent to Gimbletts Mill and the following climb. The route into Launceston was blocked by a fallen tree making the lane impassable. The 2 leading riders Ian Weatherill and Bill Barnes cleared a route through by ripping branches off the fallen tree. Arriving at Tesco cafe for a late lunch the shelves were bare but the staff rustled up some hot food from the kitchen including chilli, mushroom stroganoff with rice or chips. This eased the pain of the final lumpy miles through Rezare, Stoke Climsland and Kelly Bray to Callington for the final dash down the main road back to Carkeel in heavy showers. Simon picked up another puncture in the final miles requiring the services of Andy again who finished with filthy black hands. Robin Griffin called it a day before Launceston, feeling below par, grabbing a lift with organiser Bryan who was following up in his car.

The complete list of finishers:

Bill Barnes, Jan Crosby, Les Deering, Pippa Wheeler, Roy Russell, Simon Endicott, Andy Endicott, Mark Endicott, Larry Clarke, Graham John

Tourist Trial Map Reading on 8 June 2008

Another warm sunny day for the Tourist Trial. 15 riders entered including regular visitor Mark Beauchamp from North Hants chasing extra National away points in this competitive event. This left 14 CTC Devon riders including 1 family to score points.

Robin Griffin again organised an interesting and enjoyable event from the Steam Railway cafe at Totnes. Torbay's club run arrived in force at the cafe but all but Kevin Presland and Rob Swayne declined to enter.

Robin had listed 18 questions with grid references and with points varying from 1 to 4 depending on distance from the start. We had to select 7 of those and plan a route to answer them all. This meant that you could plan a lengthy route or a short route. There was also a compulsory observation section of 7km to include. A maximum of 21 points could be gained from the ride. Returning to the start we then had to answer a list of questions based on the observation section and also some cycling general knowledge.

Lexi Webber came out on top followed by Bill Barnes, Kevin Presland, Pippa Wheeler and Kirby James. Congratulations to junior Emma Pethybridge, the youngest entry, who completed the event finishing 9th.

Next year's event will be in the Exeter area on the same weekend.

Several people managed the maximum 21.
