Sunday 11 August 1985
Afternoon ride: Treasure Hunt
Wet start
9 Participants: Jeremy Ford, Mark Hunt, John Iles, Michael Jones, Kevin Presland, Unknown Rider 1, Andrew Simmons, Roger Simmons, Peter Willard
A disappointing turnout (eight Dart Valley, one Torbay and zero Dawlish) caused the postponement of the Treasure Hunt to a later date. However, those who bothered to turn up decided that they were not going to be deprived of a ride by their fair-weather colleagues and duly set off towards New Bridge via Hembury Woods.

The River Dart was running very high and fast following several days (months?) of torrential rain, and we had ample opportunity to witness this whilst cycling the riverside path to Spitchwick. The long, long climb to Buckland-in-the-Moor was followed by another long, long climb to Cold East Cross where Kevin left us. The Dart Valley group enjoyed the long descent to the Grasshopper Inn and a couple of stony, muddy tracks on the way home.
