Dartmoor Epic

Pete from Braking Wind had suggested a ride on Dartmoor, fine idea!
I drove down with Jasper (#1 son) and Harry (Jaspers buddy) to Pete's place near Bovey Tracey, to meet him and Emmet.

We rode down to Bovey, then up Lustliegh Cleave to Manaton,

THe woods were beautiful, sun spearing through the trees, mud and rock at grippy consistency, good temperature... big big climb to Manaton. Then round to Jay's Grave, and on to Hound Tor where someone had left some furniture in a field.

Ace! There was snow still lying up here too, so there was some slippy slidy falling off fun, before attacking the descent to Manaton. Hilarious Dartmoor rock chiutes and boulder rolling down off the moor and back home for cake.
