Just a Reminder. Next Ride Out. Sunday 13th July


Back from Garmisch and ready for the next Ride Out.

Sunday the 13th of July. Meeting at 9am at MacDonald’s at Coryton Interchange at Junction 32 of the M4.

We will be departing for Chepstow and then attempting to ride as much of the English – Welsh Border as we can from Chepstow in the South towards Chester in the North.

This will take us up the Wye Valley, through Tintern to Monmouth. Continuing towards Skenfrith and over Hay Bluff to Hay on Wye and beyond.

Please come and join us. Once again I will willingly collect any donations that you wish to make for the NSPCC, as part of their ‘Big Bike Ride Weekend’, promotion.

So come for a fab ride, raise some much needed cash and oh yes…. have a cup of tea and be bored by our stories of our epic trip into Germany!

  1. A big thanks to Andy, Tyrone & Keith for the great company across Europe!

    When i was’nt riding the bike or sleeping, i was laughing…. ALOT.

    Speaking of riding, boy oh boy, the lads can ride. Full lugagge, uphill, downhill, hurricane winds, lashing rain… still with the throttle pinned 🙂 a pleasure to watch.

    Only 14 tanks of fuel used, enough food consumed to feed a small army and in the blink of an eye our 5 day adventure finished.

    Big thanks again to the lads
    Best Regards Rob

  2. I just want to say a big thank you to all those who came on the ride out and so kindly donated for the NSPCC.

    I collected over £70. Fantastic.

    What a great ride. Some roads I’d never ridden before and what a Sunday Lunch! (Even though the first Tea Stop almost ran into Sunday Lunch).
