Bristol Ride Out Sunday 11th of November

Sunday the 11th November.

Remembrance Sunday.

Meet at the Bristol Mottorrad Shop for a 9.30am Departure. We will be travelling up the Wye Valley towards Monmouth and beyond. We will stop along the way to observe an appropriate Remembrance Day Silence.

A few matters for an up date;


I have received a letter of thanks from the NSPCC for the donations that you have made. I wish to add my thanks to all of you who have donated so generoulsy on the rideouts so far. I recently paid in a total of £81.26p. Brilliant. Thank You.

Money Savers!

As a token of thanks to you, in return I have a supply of 10% discount vouchers for Bike Gear clothing and accessories store in Bridgend. I will bring them with me on each Ride Out so if anyone would like one, please just ask.

Also if anyone wishes to purchase any bike from Thunderoad Bike Dealership in Bridgend I will give you a voucher entitling you to £50 towards any other purchase of clothing or accessories.

I appreciate your generosity and I will continue to seek out discounts and offers for members of the Rider’s Club for the future.

Coach Trip to the NEC.

Sadly it looks as though we won’t be able to fill a coach for the trip to the Bike Show as planned.
So instead I will run a Ride Out as in previous years. This will take place on the Sunday 25th of November and will leave Cardiff at 9.30am.

I give my apologies to those of you who had put your names forward to book a seat.

A departure point for the ride out will be fixed nearer the date.

There Is 1 Response So Far. »

  1. For the Ride Out tommorrow we will be stopping at Aust Services approximately 10am if anyone wishes to join us.

    We will be leaving the Bristol Shop and crossing over the Old Severn Briadge, before takning the Chepstow exit to travel up the Wye Valley past Tintern Abbey.

    We will also probably stop in the ‘Old Station’ tea rooms just on the right as you exit the village of Tintern.

    Hope you can all make it.
