1st Class/Riders/Red Kite Ride Out 16th August

109_0933 The next Ride Out is Sunday the 16th of August and this is a bit different to our usual outing.  The idea is that this will be a three pronged attack on a big  posh house in Rhayader, for a Sunday Lunch.

Meeting at Rider’s Showroom, Sloper Road, Cardiff for an approximate departure at 9.30am.

This ride out will be split into three groups, taking three different routes to meet up at the same dinner table for a 1pm lunch.

The groups will be, 1 group for Harley’s, 1 Group for Ducatis and 1 Group for ‘others’.  So if you don’t have a Harley or a Ducati come and join us in the the ‘other’s group.  ALL ARE WELCOME.

As we are booking the lunch in advance there will be a charge of £10 to cover the cost.  If you want to come along please let me know in advance. Please confirm your attendance as soon as you can.

I’ve had a few names come forward and Kevin at Riders has a growing list.

Now for paying the  money.  I don’t want to take payments with a credit card as each transaction will incur charges so you can either pay in cash (to Kevin at Riders – making sure you leave your details with your payment) by cash to me (you’ll find me in a cafe somewhere!) or by cheque made payable to ‘1st Class Rider Training’.  The cheques can dropped to Kevin at Riders or to me at 22 St Gowan Avenue, Cardiff CF14 4JX.

So come and join us in the sunshine. Good Food, Good Company and Great Roads.

Come on…..you know you want to…..


There is just 1 space left for the French Trip to The Somme in September if anyone is interested please let me know.  (See the previous Blog Posts for details).  For those of you who are on the French list already and have paid the deposit please could you pay the balance by the 10th of August.  Also I’ll be organising a pre trip meeting  to answer any queries about the trip and I’ll blog out the date soon.
