Hein Gericke- Ear Plugs & Ride Outs

Hein Gericke Ear Plugs Day.

The date for taking of the the Ear Plug Impressions will be Saturday the 21st of November.  The venue will be at the Cardiff Hein Gericke Store.

For those of you who don’t know where it is, it is situated just opposite the Old St. David’s Hospital onWellington Street in Canton at the junction with Cowbridge Road West.  (If you don’t know where St David’s Hospital is…..well it is opposite Hein Gericke of course!!).  The post code for your Sat Nag is  CF11 9BE

There is plenty of free parking at the rear of the store.  If you don’t know where the rear of the store is….. it’s around the back from the front.

The session will start from 10am and each set of impressions take about 20 minutes to complete.  So for those who are waiting there will be free tea or coffee (or both if your caffeine intake needs a kick).

The standard ear plugs will be done for the discount price of £85.  They also do the ‘InEarMonitor’ plugs which incorporate a speaker and connection for MP3 players etc.  These will be done on the day for a reduced fee of £180 (a discount of over £15 off the normal retail price).

Please note that the impressions will be taken by, and plugs provided by Minerva Hearing Protection.  1st Class Rider Training nor Hein Gericke will not be responsible for the production, sale or supply of these plugs and you will be dealing solely with Minerva.

Don’t underestimate the importance of ear protection when you are riding. So don’t miss this opportunity of getting your ears protected at this great discount price.

So Come on….. you know you want to… ‘Pardon’…. I SAID… COME ON YOU KNOW YOU WANT TO….

Now that this date is confirmed I will need to know how many of you will be coming along on the day.

If you could place a comment on the blog as Lee from minerva visits the Blog and can view the comments so he will have an idea of numbers.  Cheers

Ride Out to the NEC.

The NEC, Bike Show Ride out arranged for Sunday the 29th will also start at the Cardiff Hein Gericke Store.  You know where it is….it’s where you got your Ear Plugs.

The store will be opening in advance of their normal hours to let us in for a cuppa and maybe a slice of toast before we depart.  Staff will be there to welcome you from 9am, for a 9.45 departure.

Park at the rear and use the rear entrance as the window shutters will still be down.

Remember, 1st Class Riders enjoy a good discount at Hein Gericke – get a voucher from me.

So come on…you know you want to….

  5. Hi Chums. In answer to the question about the arrival time at the NEC, I guess sometime between 12 and 1 won’t be far off. I hope to get under way by 9.45 at the latest, from Hein Gericke.
