    <EDIT>
    Date: Saturday, 1 June 2019
    Time: 10:00 for 10:30 departure
    Location: Car park of Toby Carvery, Royal Oak Hill, Newport, NP19 9FL
    </EDIT>

    So Uncle Jesse needs to get a delivery of moonshine over the border, but he needs our help. His still is around the back of the Newport Toby Carvery.

    Our destination is Hay-On-Wye, where Bo and Luke will be waiting. Incredible, I know, but true.

    Trust me.

    With any luck, we might be greeted by Daisy Duke too!!!

    But here's the thing. The main roads are being patrolled by them Feds, the Sherriff and his corrupt deputies. Goddamnit. So we'll need to use our guile and knowledge of the back roads to get from Newport to Hay. And that means Wentwood, The Skirrid, and the dreaded Gospel Pass!

    Will we make it? Will we get caught? Join us to find out.

    The roads on this route are not quite as bad as on the "I can't believe it's not a byway" Run, but they can be potholed and a little muddy in places.

    This section is optional, but fun!

    Most of the route is quite picturesque, but there will be tricky bits.

    But it will be worth it.

    Since several regulars are busy, we're postponing this ride, sorry. Hopefully we can find a date that works for more members, perhaps in June.

    Sorry to mess you about.

    If we have gone, we should reach Cadira Beeches car park in Wentwood about 11:00 or 11:30, then Steel Horse Cafe about midday for lunch.
