The treasurer came up with the idea of a Motorcycle Theory Test which much to my suprise went down very well. I was very encouraged by the results most would have passed the test bearing in mind most would have had their test 50 or 60 years ago, the odd one ore two missed a couple of pages out. As usual the evening finished with sandwiches and chips kindly provided by mine host Adrian and staff. Hopefully we will be running a trip to the speedway later in the year watch this space
We had lovely weather for our Summer Run on Sunday 9th of July, we had a number of incidents starting with the Lazy Trout being shut for refurbishment. Then chairman Godfrey Cookson broke down before the start and went home to get his scooter to tell us, he signed on then went back to rescue his bike. We had a breakdown which was sorted on the roadside thanks to Steve Jones and Bob Glover who offered advice and help to the person in trouble. One person came off in Priest Weston had a bit of damage to his helmet and a craze on his arm, his bike was straightened out and he rode home with his friend one had a back tyre blowout in Bishops Castle and was taken home by John the box The main group went off the route at Forden having missed the turn for Chirbury and went straight on for Montgomery. I suspect they went to Monty then down the Monty road to rejoin the route at Chirbury. My thanks for the 11 who turned out, my apologies for the cafe being closed so no bacon sandwiches. Sorry gents will try and do better next time Derek
The Bucket & Spade run was a great success with 18 of us starting off from Kerry Village car park, another three joining us at the coffee stop at Bwlch y Nant Arian visitor center, the usual two suspects getting it wrong and joining us at SRM Engineering. Sadly Alan Dignan had a rear wheel problem at the coffee stop and returned home hope he had a safe journey. We were met at the factory by the Managing Director John Jolley who explained how the company was founded. We were then taken around the unit with John explaining about the work they did and about the various machines and how they worked, we finished of with the Dyno with a explanation on how it worked. It proved to be a very interesting visit thanking John we then went our separate ways with Steve Jones and my self heading for Machynlleth and the famous Hennighans fish and Chip shop, were we had some excellent fish and chips. From there we headed over the mountain for Llanidloes via the Lyn Clywedog Reservoir. A great day out in great company with really great biking weather. My thanks to the lads for turning out for the visit, all our runs entrance fees go to the Air Ambulance at the end of the year. My final thanks go to John Jolley and his team at SRM for allowing us to visit.
Our next Run will be on the 9th of July, The Summer Run starting from the Lazy Trout Cafe on the A49 Nr Church Stretton at 10.30am.
