Noddy & Big Ears Sunday Bash


Hi all Bashers who are planning to come to Noddy & Big Ears Bash On Sunday 19th August.

Please note that the ride will start from Trucker’s field ~ NOT the Teign House Inn.

Noddy promises a flat ride of approx 20 miles which will break for food & refreshments at The Teign House Inn before we return to our cars at Truckers – which is 4 miles further down the road.
Additionally please note that on Sunday 26th August Basmarti is planning another bash ride from the Post Inn, Whiddon Down. This is new and unique Bash territory featuring our beautiful rural Devon countryside, which he says is fairly flat and less than 20 miles.
The Landlord of this pub looked after us very well last time and, hopefully, you will be able to give even more support to Basmarti’s initiative on the 26th.
Ride On,



Just a quick clarification message with respect to Truckers weekend in August.

The shenanigans will commence from the afternoon of Friday 10th and Trucker has arranged for a minibus to transport us upto Dunsford for Fish & Chips either in The Royal Oak or The Walled Garden – depending on numbers. Therefore, please let Trucker know direct BY FRIDAY AUGUST 3rd AT THE LATEST if you will be there and if you want to eat, this will allow time for the orders to be placed and whichever venue we are using to prepare everything.

The rest of the weekend will be as previously promulgated, please note that although there will be some BBQ food and beer available for the paltry sum of £5 – HOW MUCH!! – that Bruce will collect on the weekend, people are requested to bring their own drink and additional food/nibbles etc – we cannot expect everything to be provided after all.

Any questions please direct to Trucker, Senior Bash Officers, or, as a last resort, myself.





Truckers Annual Bash Bonanza Weekend will now be held on the weekend of Friday August 10th – Sunday 12th.

The Itinerary will be the same as previous years:-

Friday Afternoon/Early Evening – Arrive and Set-up Camp, meet and greet and share drinks nibbles etc.

Friday Evening – Fish & Chip Supper at a venue to be confirmed (Note: Trucker will require ‘ACCURATE’ numbers so that orders can be forwarded to the venue in advance.

Saturday – A ‘lesuirely’ Bash Ride (Usually involving a climb up one of the Valley Sides and a drop back down!!), followed by beers/lunch in one of the Valley pubs before returning to Truckers for aperitifs leading into the ‘Infamous’ Saturday Evening BBQ. Real Ale will be available and it is COMPULSARY to drink enough of it so that you are talking a brand new language that only you can understand – If you need any pointers, see me on the day!!!!

Sunday – The Routine Sunday Bash commencing at 11:00 and returning to the field for a BBQ down down before breaking camp and dispersing.

Any questions or queries then either contact myself, any of the Senior Officers or Trucker direct.





Hi All Bashers,

Please be advised that as well as a ‘TOTALLY FLAT’ Road ride this coming Sunday, BOBBIBALL is also offering some, Optional, ‘Off Road Segments’ too!!! In addition to planning a route incorporating segments to satisfy riders of both disciplines, he has also managed to organise a fayre at the pub on completion too. 

Couple the Route, Fayre and the fact the Weather is going to be glorious too – why wouldn’t you want to be there? – Unless you’re undertaking the Dartmoor Classic which I know a lot of us are. Good luck to everyone wherever you are riding.



Thursday 7th June


Hi All,

This Thursdays Bash will start at The Jolly Farmer, Newton Abbot. Please note that due to the fiendish route I have planned (well it’s not too bad really!!) the meeting time has been BROUGHT FORWARD TO 18:30 – that’s 6:30PM!!! This is to ensure we can get to the beer stop at Cafe 360 before their last orders @ 20:30.
Hope to see plenty of you there.

Thursday May 24th Bash Ride

Hi All,


Tonight’s Bash ride will be led by Patch and will commence from ‘The Jolie Brise’ in Teignmouth. All participants are to note that due to the venue being part of the Wetherspoon chain, they are unable to provide us with our customary tray of Chips and Sausages! Therefore if anyone intends on eating they will have to purchase their own food alongside the compulsory half a gallon of ale!

Cheers and ON ON. 




This Thursday 26th April will see us departing from THE KINGS ARMS for the Annual Bash Birthday Ride – which is made EXTRA SPECIAL this year due to it being the Bash’s 25th Birthday!!

ALL Bashers are requested to try their hardest to attend this momentous occasion- and drink loads of Sid’s beer to support him too as he always comes to our rescue at short notice.

Please be there on time if you intend to ride so that we can make a prompt getaway @ 19:00, if you can’t ride please try and get to the pub for around 21:00.



Naming Ride

Sunday 15th April saw the Bash riding from The Turf Hotel.

The Ride was lead by Mash & Charlotte, which inevitably meant that a naming ceremony followed so that Charlotte could receive her ‘Bash Handle’.

After much thought, consideration and deliberation it was decided to keep to a potato theme and therefore our Youngest Basher (probably ever!?) is know known as ‘Spud’.

Welcome to The Bash, Spud.
