Photos from the Last Of The Summer Wine Run 2018

A fantastic range of bikes turned up at Hinton St. Mary’s village hall for yesterday’s Last of the Summer Wine run. Bob Hoare tells me 36 people signed on.

 

The awards were:

  • Landlords Cup – John Brittain – Triumph Tiger 100ss
  • Classic Cup – Roland Brittain – BSA Super Rocket
  • Foreign Shield – Mike Gardiner – Honda 250
  • Girder Fork Tankard – Rodney Hann – Sunbeam Model 9
  • Three wheeler Cup – Ian Clarke – Morgan Aero
  • Rudge Plaque – Vernon Cox – Rudge Ulster

Many thanks to Bob for organising the run, and to all those helpers providing teas, coffees, biscuits and cakes — I can confirm that the carrot cake was particularly good!  And also to John Adams and Pete Dungey for manning the recovery vehicle + trailer, which I believe, was not needed.

Photos from the Cornwall Section Rally Week 2018

Carol and Rod Hann have just returned from the excellent Cornwall Section Rally Week. Report from Rod:

Members from that Section did our Weymouth Week several times and liked the idea so I persuaded them to do a similar event in Cornwall. They have now done around seven such events and splendid they are. Glorious scenery, superb coastal rides, and plenty of nice places to visit. Average mileage per day is around 80/100 but this can be altered at will. All done in a very friendly and welcoming way. This year there were around 50/60 entrants plus a few more joining us from the Cornwall Section on a daily basis. Many of the Section members turn out to marshal at all the assailant places.

Anyone tempted to go?  Get further details from Rod Hann or the Cornwall Section website.

Photos and Video from Wessex V&V Roger’s Runaround 2018

A pleasant 30 mile run yesterday for many Dorset Section members who took part in this Wessex V&V Section event. The route took us around the lanes of Stourton Caundle, Bishop’s Caundle, Caundle Marsh, Glanvilles Wootton and King’s Stag with a coffee stop at Folke Golf Centre in Alweston.

I’ll be returning to the Virginia Ash pub this morning to clean up their car park. My Ariel is in disgrace; the primary chain oiler seems to have gone haywire.

Don’t forget our own Last of the Summer Wine run next Sunday 16th September at 11am from Hinton St. Mary; details here.  And our Club Night this Wednesday 12th September at 7:30pm when Mike Spencer will talk about Iceland; details here.

Sound on!
