Sunday 10 December 1978

Day ride: Cotley Castle
1 present: Graham Brodie
Our run to Cotley Castle took place on the greyest of winter days, with only three of us out. Tha main problem was finding somewhere dry for lunch. Refuge was eventually found under the corrugated iron roof of a cattle shed where lunch was had, and then – a hasty retreat home through Luton and Ideford.

Sunday 17 December 1978

Day ride: Lustleigh Cleave
3 present: Frank Boyes, Graham Brodie, Basil Ellis
Not content with losing Frank and Basil on our Avon Dam run a few weeks earlier, we lost them again on the run to Lustleigh Cleave! Once again a search party was sent out but with no success so we had lunch at the Cleeve and then made tracks for home via Bovey Tracey and Teigngrace. We caught up with the lost pair once again at Newton Abbot.

Sunday 24 December 1978Day ride: Christmas Cheer Run
5 present: Colin Brierly, Graham Brodie, Basil Ellis, Don Hassall, Grace Hassall
The Christmas Cheer run on Christmas Eve was very enjoyable, with Colin, Basil and myself riding out via Gappah and Ideford to the Ship Inn at Cockwood where we met Don and Grace Hassal for a light meal which was very good indeed and reasonably priced.

We all went back to Dawlish along the sea-front and were lucky to dodge the huge waves breaking over the wall. After a brief stop for a welcome cup of coffee at Don and Grace’s we headed for home via Teignmouth and Combe-in-Teignhead.
