If it smells of oil or Petrol ...its in the shed.

This year Simon D and myself decided to organise on the Bill Lacey run, we spent an evening after work of checking the route and making sure no roads were closed or diversions in place. Starting at the usual Lay By on the A423 Jacqueline got the members to sign on and give out the route sheets while I walked around Gossiped, cooed at all the nice bikes and took some photographs. Good job it is a good size Lay By because we had a good turn out of machines.

of a Public School in Sherborne Dorset. In actual fact this school courtyard was used as a setting for a scene in the latest film adaptation of Thomas Hardy's ' Far from the Madding crowd ' as can be seen there was a good turn out of interesting and highly desirable Motor Cars, and also in the corner of a smaller school courtyard a fine gathering of Classic Motor Cycles. I always come away from Dorset wishing I had bought along a bike of my own to ride because the country lanes around this part of Dorset look particular inviting for old Motor Cycles..... maybe its time to think about a tow bar and small trailer for such occasions.

We met at Alan's house for around 10.00 am, drank Coffee, placed a tick on the menu for food of the Pub for our lunchtime stop. And then all proceeded at an orderly pace across country from Northampton to Warwickshire, I think about 45 miles. However the interesting thing for me was that we didn't use a route card. Alan led the way and any second rider behind the leader would 'drop off' off and show the direction at the next road junction, and then go to the back of the line of riders. Some other sections use this method and personally I found it more relaxing ride without having to try and read a card. I could be tempted to play truant from work more often! Many thanks to Alan Bailey for a great day.
