It's that time of year again guys. Late MayBank Holiday when everybody comes to Newquay to show off their pride and joy.
There will loads of VW campers breaking down on the way down as they overheat in the traffic queues.
Although this year,part of the new A30 bypass is open along the GosS Moor so the infamous low iron bridge is bypassed.

Weather forecast is not looking too good though. Shame because this week has been gorgeous.

Anyone going?

We will be heading in the opposite direction as we are going to North Devon for a few days.

Parking will be a pain so if anyone is going and they drop me a line you are more than welcome to park on our drive ( there is room for about 6 cars). We are aprrox 10 minute walk away from beaches and 15mins from main Town Centre.

We are staying in a holiday bungalow/chalet in Croyde Bay!

& yes - it has a reasonable sized garden ( backing on to the sandunes) and there is a BBQ!

Just look out for an Eclipse Grey Lag ST with a roof box, 1 bike on top & 3 bikes on the back!

Croyde Bay, my folks live in Bideford so not too far, nice part of the country.
Hope your Mum doesn't drive a 4 x4!
Last year in Bideford ( atlantic Village) - we parked the Lag in a practically deserted car park, there were hundreds of spaces left - we only went inside for a few minutes & when we came back this woman was parking her 4x4 right next to us. As we approached we saw her open her door straight onto our car, so we loitered and delayed a bit to see what she was going to do. When we got up to our car,she had damaged the rubbing strip,scratched the paintwork and slightly dented our door - her car - not a mark on it! She blamed the wind, we saw her she just opened her door and let it go, it was hardly windy. Anyway,she agreed to pay for the damage, not once did she apologise though.

Yep - we are hoping to cycle part of the Tarka trail to Bideford, have a pub lunch and then cycle back again! It is along the old railway line so not hilly :d
