Cheers gents Right palaver finding petrol, but sorted and home safe n sound. Enjoyed that!
Thankyou for the ride out and tips great evening out of london. Played petrol station roulette on the way home lol
The petrol station I went to had just closed (like all the burger bars!) and then they closed the road to Bergholt. Was on flashing petrol light for about 10 miles before I found a garage
Ride out rule 6:17 'If the group stops at a petrol station, fill up! (Even if you’ve used only half a tank)
Just closed was the theme of the evening, we arrived everywhere just in time to see the shutters pulled minutes after closing time. High Beech tea hut, Kings Oak burger bar, Great Bentley burger bar, Plough Inn kitchens and a random chippy. Then we stumbled across the Sea View, a seaside Chinese take away, where our supper was prepared while the local Co-Op across the street pulled their shutters. Down on the sea front we parked up in the disabled bays and took out bought out supper on Bateman’s Tower Cafe patio tables under the ‘only food purchased on these premises’ sign.
Rule 9.36 check opening times beforehand
