I recently had my bike moter rebuilt and I have not had a chance to ride it since. Weather and the unforseen permitting I thought some BCR would be good to get some miles on the motor.
Now this exact same circumstance occurred some years back and I went out with competent learners and those wanting to learn the BCR route at a slower pace…as was the BCR of the day, it ended with some nee’nor’nee’nor and a trip to A&E for a rider. Hopefully lightening won’t strike twice.
The ride leaves early (8am usually) from The City Pavillion roundabout (The BCR roundabout RM5 2BH). The ride will get back to the start about 1pm if no one bins’it.
A few rules:
It ain’t a race. Treat it like one and its nee’nor’nee’nor and a trip to A&E! Showing off don’t work when plod are trying to nick you as you’re being lifted into an ambulance.
Speed limits in the villages are to be respected. That don’t mean going past a 30 sign at 240mph and then slowing to 30. It means entering the 30 at 30 and keeping both wheels on the road till you pass the Nat/speed sign please.
Fuel. Pls HAVE A FULL TANK when you arrive at the roundabout. Pls dont inconvenience the ride. There will be fuel stops (may be 50mls in)
The ride is about 90mls and will stop for breakfast in Finchingfield. It’s a grown-up’s ride and progressive. That’s means its not suited to novices I’m afraid.
Hopefully I’ll see some familiar faces and some new one too.
Let’s make this happen!
