Star Gazing Ride Out. 30th June

A Star Gazing Ride Out. 
Tuesday the 30th of June 8pm at Caerphilly Mountain Snack Bar.

That’s 8PM, because we are going to look at some planets.  On June 30th Jupiter and Venus will come together in what is expected to be an awesome astronomical display.

We will travel to Crai Reservoir in the Heart of The Brecon Beacons.  The National Park is only the 5th destination in the World to be granted Dark Sky Reserve status so should give us an excellent opportunity to view this interplanetary phenomenon.

Bring a flask of soup, some binoculars, or a small telescope and some soup! Although your naked eyes will do just fine!

Please note this may be a late finish.  Hoping for a cloud free, and starry starry night.

If you visit our Facebook page you will find a link to Wales Online which gives full details of the astronomy background to this event.

Our Ride Outs are simply out of this World.

Also out of this World, but in a theoretical sense, is our 3 Countries Advanced Motorcycle Course which is running this September.   Don’t miss out.  Get yourself on the list for this amazing event.

Check out all the course details on our ‘advanced training ‘ page.


Come on….. You know you want….
