This was a first for the Section, laying on a run exclusively for two stroke motorcycles. Despite opening up the run to those pesky four strokes, for the first time, we failed to pre-book all 30 places. Was something else on? Hot weather send everyone to the coast?
Andy’s report is below and many thanks Andy, for putting this run together, and, yes, Teals café is a great new venue for us. I think we did rather well getting 11 stinkwheels and hope this classified run becomes an annual event on our calendar: great oaks from little acorns grow!
Don’t forget: we have a mid-week run on Wednesday (16th) and the Somerset Levels Run next Sunday (20th). Check our event calendar for details.
The first Blue Haze Run, was certainly the Blue Sky Run with the warmest day of the year so far!
We had 19 entrants – 11 on 2 Strokes and 4 on f*** strokes. Very mixed bag of strokers ranging from a 1924 Scott Squirrel to a Kawasaki 750 H2, the smell of 2 stroke was definately in the air at certain points of the route.
The route left The Trading post and went over Batcombe to Sherbourne and then to Poyntington to Teals farmshop and café at North Cadbury. This new café is definitely worth considering if organising an event in this area. After a pleasant stop we then proceeded to Somerton, Martock, Hazlebury Plucknett and back to the Trading Post. All in 64 miles were covered.
So if you have a 2 stroke of any type gathering dust in the back of your shed, dig it out and dust it off ready for next year, whatever it is you will find someone going at a similar pace. Lets see if we can get over twenty stinkwheels next year!
