Mr Softail Slim, Peter Currie, led us through four beautiful counties in the north of England on our first Chapter ride-out of 2018.
We whizzed away from Tyne and Wear, into Northumberland and on to the Military Road. A trip through Gilsland meant Cumbria was now upon us and we then crossed the A69 to land at our destination, Talkin Tarn. It was beautiful and the predicted sunshine was out in full force to greet us.
A slight detour (fallen tree) added a few miles to our trip as we headed for Alston and some fuel.
A straight line for Nenthead, then Allendale and back to Allenheads, soon had us into County Durham and the lovely moors over Stanhope. We had the place to ourselves as we whizzed back onto the A68 and down to Corbridge to finish.
A great day for everyone!
