Morning ride: SkerratonBright but windy and cold
5 present: Ash Freeman, Callum Freeman, Ryan Havinga, Michael Jones, Zac McGrath
The plan today was to ride over the moor at Skerraton Down, but by the time we reached the top of the hill past Nurston the strong, bitterly-cold wind was affecting everyone. We decided to shorten the ride and returned via Dean hill for a computer games social.

Callum, Zac, Ryan and Ash at Michelcombe
Today's ride took us through Buckfast to Scoriton and Michelcombe, and then to Holne where we had a chocolate break and used the local shop. Michael's plan to return via River Dart Country Park was not so popular with the youngsters in view of the cold weather, so we returned via Hembury Woods. The mud in the woods put off all but Zac and Callum from trying the slalom track today, but without Michael to guide them they forgot to turn left in the woods and missed the slalom altogether, hitting the road about half way up the hill.

Everybody wanted an evening in tonight so Michael organised a game of charades that kept everyone entertained.

Morning ride: Wallaford FarmCold (6º)
4 present: Ash Freeman, Callum Freeman, Ryan Havinga, Michael Jones
Michael was still recovering from flu so after an excellent game of Lord of the Rings on the PC network we arranged a very short ride that took us up Wallaford road and home via Duckspond. At least it gave Ash a chance to show off his new Trek mountain bike.
