2020 RIDEOUTS AND EVENTS  


Please have sufficient fuel at the start of rideouts so that  fuel stops can be kept to a minimum.  Even if the destination is only a short distance away your tank should be full (not just a bit over half) - the route taken will often not be direct.

A reminder about rideouts if the weather is a bit suspect.  "On future ride outs if the weather is not looking too good please telephone one of the reps to check if it’s still on before meeting up.  It should be pretty obvious anyway but please check first, you don’t want to be turning up for nothing.  It would only ever be the case in the event of bad weather.  Thank you. Trev" 

The 2020 calendar will start in April.  Standard departure point is the services at Boreham at 10:00.  From December 1, 2019 to April 5, 2020 departure time will be 10:30.  Variations are detailed below in the destination list.

We also plan to do some mid week (Wednesday) rides (one a month) for those that can make it, originally deemed the Retired Riders Group, quickly re-named the Retarded Riders group.  Nothing is set in stone and there is no planned ride out month on month, just as the fancy takes us and weather of course. Let us know if you are interested so we can keep you informed.



2020 Rideout Calendar

We are gradually reintroducing formal rideouts.  Social distancing must be maintained at the start points, the destination, and at any fuel stops on route.   Although pubs, cafes, and other eating places are open again many require pre booking.  In some cases it will be necessary to take your own drinks and food with you.

      28         From Boreham servicesat 10:00 to Halsted (top of the hill) then at 10:45 on to

                          Thetford forest for a well distanced picnic.  Please remember to bring your

                          own food and drink.  We are not too sure if toilet facilities will be available

     19            to Bluntisham, PE28 3LX, something a bit different as we have a member who now lives

                              there and is due her 15 year membership patch so a scenic route to her house to

                              present her patch and as is the norm a cuppa and biscuits plus hot dogs at the other end.

       26              Aldeburgh - on the coast and a lovely fish and chip shop just near the beach.  Bikes can be

                           parked right beside the beach so no problem there, says he with fingers crossed.

   7-9               Centre 7 "Not the Scrumpy Party" at Tonna - event postponed to 2021

                         It will be a picnic so bring your own food and drink, blanket, chair if it suits, you

                       know the format.

                        The reason for a picnic is that the feeling is not good for going in to crowded places to

                         get food and drink, better to be safe then sorry. 

                         Ride outs have been very poorly attended and it would be really nice to see a few more

                        C19 members coming out on their bikes.   Boreham  10:00 to take a scenic route there.

PAGE FOR DISPLAY OF BIKES AT SHOWS

This is a format for a display notice for bikes at events such as the bike show at the Langford Museum of Power, Charsfield Fete, and Southwold.  

It's available as a Microsoft Word document (click on the link below) and, if you have Word, it's easy to edit from the details shown for my bike to cover your bike.  Technical details for most of our bikes are on the Star Motorcycles US Web site at http://www.starmotorcycles.com/star/products/lifestylehome/home.aspx  Please do not change the pictures, header text, fonts, or layout of the page - we are looking for a "standard" page with brief details in Arial 14 point black bold.  Colour printing and lamination will be required; I have both and can do this for you if required; just e-mail your page to bob.owen96@btinternet.com.  Note that this is for VSOC qualifying bikes only.
