Photos from the Spring Run 2019

Yesterday, spring had definitely sprung!  And it looks like sunny and dry weather for the next 10 days at least, so if you haven’t done it already, brush those winter cobwebs off your bike and get it ready for the Blandford Run on the 7th April.

But yesterday was all about the Spring Run.  Great turnout and a chance for Paul Miles and your Secretary to try out our recently acquired 1930 Douglas S6 twins.  Let’s just say that one went a lot better than the other and maybe I should have stuck with Ariels… 🙁 .

With approx 40 miles from Henstridge Golf and Leisure to the lunch stop at the Windwhistle Inn between Chard and Crewkerne and another 50 miles to get to the start and back home, it was a long run for me.  Even more so for our friends North of the Wall (A303) who covered about 130 miles.

Full marks go to Mike Ward for stopping to help a broken down biker and giving him a pillion lift to the pub while waiting for breakdown recovery.  And thanks to Bernard Jones for putting a great route together.
