10:15 - 15:00
Morning ride: Dartington/Totnes
Occasional showers
2 Participants: Dillan Edwards, Michael Jones
Today's ride had to be converted to a Computer Science social because a certain person had left homework to the last minute. Jude was planning to join us but later decided to work at home.

20:30 - 21:45
Social: Badminton
5 Participants: Harry Back, Dillan Edwards, Michael Jones, George Rogers, Mark Thomas
Dillan was the overall winner this evening with George a very close second, but everyone played some exceptional badminton during the course of the evening.



Sunday 18 November 2018
10:15 - 12:30
Morning ride: Dartington
Dry with sunny spells
12 miles (▲ 222m)
2 Participants: Dillan Edwards, Michael Jones
With Jude unwell, only two of us set off from Buckfastleigh at 10:15, taking Colston Road and the cycle path to the shops at Dartington.

The Venus cafe closed a few months ago, and to fill the gap the Dartington organisers had set up a new, temporary cafe in the same premises. It seemed similar in some ways to the Venus, although the cakes seemed a little less varied. We enjoyed some excellent coffee and a teacake however, warming ourselves nicely from the chill November air outside.

After some self-timer photos outside on the picnic tables we returned via Staverton Bridge and Caddaford.

Friday 7 December 2018
20:30 - 21:45
Social: Badminton
6 Participants: Harry Back, Ziggy Clark, Dillan Edwards, Michael Jones, George Rogers, Mark Thomas
With six taking part in our badminton session once again and everyone's standard improving week by week we had an excellent series of games this evening that ended with Dillan, Mark and Harry all achieving four wins out of five. We used points to distinguish between them, but as Dillan and Mark both had 102 points and there was no time to play a tie-break game we had to declare the two of them joint winners this evening, with Harry only one point behind with 101 points. Well done everyone.



Sunday 9 December 2018
10:15 - 15:00
Morning ride: Ashburton
Breezy with showers
9 miles (▲ 147m)
5 Participants: Dillan Edwards, Michael Jones, Jude Norris, George Rogers, John Rogers
The overnight rain and wind was still abating at 10.15 and since our members don't really like winter weather we started with a coffee at Crofters before setting off at 11.30 when conditions were more pleasant.

We took the old road to Ashburton, rode through the town and met George at Ashmoor Leisure centre for an hour of badminton. We then returned to the town - with George running alongside us - for our first ever visit to Taylors tearooms. Here, the hot drinks were excellent, but by the time the cakes arrived twenty minutes later we had long since finished our drinks, so the service could have been better.

We returned to Buckfastleigh with continued light showers peppering the journey on an otherwise sunny afternoon.
