DELABOLE RALLY REVIEW      by Keith Burt

8th to 10th July 2022

 

People Camping:- Don, Phil, Dave, Barry from Bury, Les Carr, Pete Frost, Keith Burt,

 

THURSDAY:-

Phil and I arrived from the Llandovery Rally, on Thursday 7th July

Pitched up and chilled out a while.

Don arrived followed by Sue with all the camping kit and gazebo.

We were all very glad of that Gazebo, the whole weekend was very warm with strong sun.

Don had organised a portable loo for us, it just needed collecting from the playing fields.

So Don went home on his bike got the car & trailer Phil and I jump in with him and some how managed to get the loo onto the trailer bed and back to camp site and set up for use.

Don then had to go back with the car and return with the bike. Whew!!

FRIDAY

Phil had picked up multiple rear tyre punctures, whist doing some of the Welsh Photo Challenge Points from Llandovery, we did some very rough tracks on our travels.

By Friday morning Phil had used up all his puncture repair inserts, so he agreed to try out my kit which are mushroom type plugs, he put three or four in!

Friday Morning Phil, Don and Keith set off to do the two Cornish Photo Challenge Points.

We did not get very far before Phil's rear tyre deflated again.

Seems the plugs had removed themselves ??? So more plugs in, and off again, couple more miles down the road, flat tyre, plugs missing again (no way they could have come out road side must be inside the tyre).

Some more plugs into the tyre, this time Phil gives the plug tails a hefty pull & stretch, leaving a small bump of rubber still proud of the tread.

By now it was gone 12:00 and too late to carry on with the challenge points today.

A table had been booked in the Bettle & Chisel for Friday Evening, we are joined by Sue & Debbie

SATURDAY:-

Phil's rear tyre is still up and good to go. Only four bikes take up the ride out offer, Phil, Dave, Keith, Don & Sue. The plan is to do the two challenge points we missed out on Friday.

Slapton Sands First, followed by Hound Tor Rocks, on Dartmoor.

The temperature was really scorching, using full kit, I was starting to feel the affects of it.

Back to the camp site for a meal at the Bettle & Chisel and a wander over to the marque on the village green, for a beer and listen to the “Queen Tribute Band”

SUNDAY:-

Thunderbox needs to go back, so Don & Sue sort out the transport.

We all help to load it onto the trailer then three of us jump in to Don’s car to help unload it.

This was a very enjoyable weekend with excellent weather. A big thank you to Don & Sue for all their hard work organising it all.
