A short bimble around the glorious lanes of East Devon, UK!
Permalink  
 


A glorious day here today and I was lucky to have previously arranged a short trail ride with my mate Jim. First time on the lanes for both of us since last Autumn.

We covered only 45 miles but, within that distance, we rode 44 lanes. Some very short but that's a lot of different lanes however you look at it. They are very close together in East Devon and there is very little road work between them biggrin

The lane surfaces were just about perfect - still some mud but not yet dusty.

Both bikes behaved impeccably although my TTR slightly embarrassed itself by losing an exhaust guard bolt disbelief

Between us we only got three photos and those not very good - sorry guys cry

You can see from this photo why I need a 350 big bore engine!

Thats an insane amount of lanes there, are they all signposted or do you know about them based on OS maps/council maps and through local knowledge?

They look like great fun!

The Devon TRF Group have spent thousands of hours over the years creating a database of legal lanes and they are constantly updated by members, problems reported/resolved, etc.

A fantastic resource that is available to members on a digital overlay that can be used on most commonly used GPS systems such as Memory Map. 

Virtually all the lanes we used would have been included on our TTR250s-only run - see https://ttr250.activeboard.com/t57914992/devon-ride-out-or-white-leader-and-the-blue-swarm-saturday-1/
