Ride Out News

Hi to all my ‘bloggies’.

The Second Sunday of the Month is upon us once more and it only seems like four weeks ago we had the last one!

The next ride out will again be a combined Welsh/English affair.

It is so us Welsh can commiserate with the English for being knocked out of ‘Le Cup de Monde’. (See… my skool years weren’t wasted). I know the kick off isn’t until this afternoon…………

Anyway, the Ride out.

Two meeting points. For the Early Birds you can join us for a Cup de Cafe at the Welcoming Showrooms of Bristol Motorrad (See not just French but Motorrad stuff too!!) We will be leaving at 9.30am and travelling to Abergavenny Bus Station where we will be arriving approximately 10.30am.

After a Cup de cafe or deux we will then be travelling towards Llandovery and taking in the road around the Llyn Brianne Reservoir. (Llyn Brianne is Welsh for….. well, Llyn Brianne, I suppose.)

The road is not a fast road but the views overlooking the lake below are spectacular. A bit narrow in places but well worth the climb.

So I look forward to seeing you tommorrow.

With regards to the Coach trip to the NEC for the Bike Show I haven’t had much of a response with only a few of you requesting seats. Well I just want to reassure you all that you will all have seats so please put your name down. You will need to let me know so that the transport can be booked otherwise we will have to walk all the way in paired formation making bus noises.

I’ll put a seperate blog out again for the Coach Trip so please reply to it and let me know.


See you tommorrow.
