Sunday 16 June 1985
Afternoon ride: Avon Dam
Sunny
17 Participants: Steven Bowles (15, Paignton), Grace Dovell, Richard Dovell, Mark Gruit (Junior, Devon), Matthew Hinkley (Junior, Buckfastleigh), Mark Hunt, Michael Jones, Paul Mahchinger (Junior, Devon), Mark Moxham (15, Paignton), Raymond Parkin, Luke Rake, Andrew Simmons, John Stuart, Simon Warner (13, Marldon), Tim Whiteoak, Paul Willard, Peter Willard
A sunny, warm day greeted us as we left Buckfastleigh and headed up (and down) through Harbourneford and past Brent Hill towards Shipley Bridge. At Shipley, ice-creams were called for while we waited for the Dawlish Dawdlers – and they certainly were dawdling! After about fifteen minutes of waiting we gave up and headed on to Woolholes. We found the letterbox, but to our dismay neither the box nor the group had a pad, so we were unable to stamp our books.

From here Luke, Tim and Andrew nipped in to Zeal Gully for another box while the rest of the group met the Dawdlers (at last) and went around the dam to the Abbots Way. An exhilarating descent across the moor via Water Oak Corner brought the club home by 6pm, closely followed by the letterboxers.
