Events Calendar 2022

May 13th – 15th

Central Weekend

Location

Premier Inn West Harpole, Northampton

Details

The first weekend event of the season takes you through five of the counties in the heart of England along excellent roads with great scenery and picturesque towns.

We will be following the usual successful format of a full day’s ride out departing at 10:00am with lunch at Charlbury Garden Centre, and a coffee stop in the afternoon before returning for more food and liquid refreshments at our hotel.

A number of different rideouts will be available for those who prefer a shorter route or if you want to make you way to the lunch stop solo thats fine as well as we can advise on the roads not to miss (most of them). For those interested in a bit of culture you could always follow a twisty route to Bletchley Park and investigate the cracking of the enigma code.


May 28th – 29th

Bangor

Details

310 miles of wriggly roads on Sat, 310 miles of wriggly roads on Sun.

Western Weekend

Location

Ludlow, Shropshire

Details

The Western Region weekend will again be based in Ludlow, Shropshire and if you’re a regular, you already know it’s the perfect base to explore the wonderful roads of Wales. There are many pubs, hotels, restaurants and fast food places in Ludlow to suit everyone’s tastes.

As before, we’ll use the Church Inn, King Street and the Wheatsheaf Inn, Lower Broad Street, for socialising. These are real ale pubs and maintains the Western Region weekend tradition of the availability of good thirst quenching beer.

For the ride out on Saturday, everyone should meet in the Leisure Centre Car Park from 9.30am. and the first group will move off for 10.00am.
Take the B4361 out of Ludlow as though heading to the A49 bypass. The Leisure Centre is located within the road calming / hump area.

Ensure you have a full tank of fuel and you’ll need to go to Harry Tuffin’s supermarket complex on the Ludlow bypass for petrol or ensure you have sufficient to take you to the first stop on the ride out, which is about 90 miles.
