Dodursley ABR challenge 2017

Post by dodursley » Thu Mar 02, 2017 7:25 pm

Limiting myself to old Gloucestershire county, ie Gloucestershire + South Gloucestershire. Unexpected decent afternoon so a bumble out on the early Transalp which immediately gave me V as it is 30 years old and can be used in many VMCC events under their 25 year rule.

Some more from along the Fosse Way A-J & U and a reference back to Q quarry
A Cotswold Airport (Kemble) which is home to some aircraft breakers/dismantlers J junkyard, the Fosse crosses the airfield. Stopped off for a coffee at AV8 which had 20-30 SLKs and Boxters parked outside apparently their meeting point, no roofs down though.

D Dowdswell Dam the bigest in Glos, I think, very unimpressive even more so from bike accessable side, just a grass bank with sheep grazing. Lake side at least looks more like a dam but cannot get bike in pic from there.

F- Forest of Dean the Speech Stone, marks the centre of the forest at Speech House where the Verderers Court met to maintain the forest laws.
Out for a ride to sort out more of the route for our club Daffodil run through the Glos Daffodil triangle then through the Forest to the Wye Valley, though I will not be using the Vara for the run.
