2020 Event History

Tuesday 8th Sept Fish & Chip Run

 

Our early evening 2020 CHIP RUN on the 8th September, was really well supported with 14 Riders eager to get out into the early evening sunshine. 

Using our favoured ‘Drop Off’ system, everyone, eventually arrived safely at our Mystery destination, Ashby de la Zouch. A small hiccup at Tywcross meant that two contingents arrived from different directions!

 

At Nick’s Fish Bar we were treated to excellent tasty fodder in a well organised safe way with personal service from Nick and his staff. 

 

Without exception, everyone commented on how tasty their early fish supper proved to be with Tea and Coffee to follow. 

My thanks go to all who supported the Run in these difficult times.

Sunday 13th Sept Trial Run

 

Hello everyone, yesterday’s Ride Out to support Dave Thomas at his first Trial of the Season was a great success on a beautifully bright and sunny day. Dave came third overall beaten by two skinny lightweight Bantams

(but he's not bitter)!

 

Over 30 Riders turned out to complete the 24 mile trip. 

We were pleased to welcome nine Warwickshire and Solihull Bloodbikers who joined in the fun.

Sunday 20th Sept Marina Run

A fine turnout with a good selection of machines for a gentle country run to the Canal Boat Marina at Barton on Trent.

Nice to see an unusual Norton Rotary on one of our runs for the first time.

 

2020 will go down as a year where lots of things happened; just not at VMCC Midlands. We did manage a few events and runs, but no club nights after February.

 

 

Midlands Section Goes International.

 

At our last gymkhana at the NMCM, we met a family from Oregon.

 

Father Andy and sons took up our offer of a ride on the Bantams in the afternoon during set up and practice runs.

 

As you can see from the attached pictures, they are a family who are anything but “Boring” (believe it or not, Boring is the name of the town in Oregon where Andy and his family live). Andy keeps in touch, and he and his friends are keeping the British end up over there.

Mind you, we think his shed could do with a bit of a tidy up, how can you find anything in there? If anyone would like to get in touch with Andy, let any member of the committee know and we will pass your details on to him”.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

JB brought along his chainsaw blender.  It's very handy when you are camping without electricity and have a hankering for a cold blended drink.  Thank goodness the pull rope broke before things got out of hand.  It runs with a bicycle chain.  He uses 2 stroke castor bean oil in the fuel mix for that proper exhaust aroma.
