Old Gits Loxton Lollop 26

Out with the Old Gits today.  Nice morning for the 13 that turned up and it was decided to stray from our normal route and extend the ride for a couple of miles through Christon and Loxton.

Brake failure

Crossing the M5 and climbing the hill towards Christon, Geoff (on the right) noticed a problem with the rear brake blocks on his machine. Half the group had crested the hill and gone on, the remainder stopped to give a hand. A  rummage through various rucksacs and bags produced a 10mm spanner which did the trick.

Making progress

Caught up with the rest who were waiting around the corner and set off again for the long descent into Loxton.


A member of the cabbage family, aubretia is a brilliant plant for covering walls and banks. This was seen near the garage in Loxton.  A hardy perennial, it does very well in well drained soil and enjoys shade and or sun.

Recycling Day

Well in Puxton Lane anyway.  Taking the whole of the road up, the Old Gits managed to squeeze through in someones drive way.  We would have to meet it in one of the narrowest parts of the road.

A very pleasant morning with the lads. Covered just over 26 miles today.
