PAST EVENTS 2022

SLIMBRIDGE RALLY
TUDOR CARAVAN PARK
This year we thought we would try having a Sunday to Thursday Rally as Slimbridge is a lot quieter in the week, so on Sunday the 19th of June we arrived at 12 - 30 and found that two couples had arrived already. After some lunch I unloaded my bike from the trailer and then put the flags and gazebo up with some help from Keith, by this time a few more had arrived. 
On Monday everyone did their own thing including Keith and I who went and finished the four challenge points in Somerset, and did 161 miles before arriving back at site at 16 - 00 hours. In the evening a few of us ended up in the gazebo for a nightcap and natter before heading off to bed. 
Tuesday was was much the same with every one doing what they wanted, Ron and Jan left today and then Jim arrived to pitch up. Later, Keith, Debbie and I went to the Tudor Arms for a meal then it was back to the gazebo for the evening. On Wednesday morning, Neil, Jackie, Keith and I went to a Western Section meet at the Old Barn Tearooms near Taly - bont - on - Usk. It was a good ride although we took the boring A roads and Motorway there and the more scenic route back, about 160 miles with a good turnout at the Tearoom but a very hot day The evening was spent in the gazebo again. Thursday, Keith and I went to The Silver Fox Cafe on the A48 for a ride and some lunch, yet another hot day! By the time we arrived back all of the others had left base camp, except Debi and Jerry who were staying until Sunday so the five of us went to the pub for a meal again before spending yet another evening in the gazebo watching the sun go down. 
We would like to thank all of those that came and hope you all enjoyed yourselves, the exceptional weather this year definitely helped. We have booked again for next year, Sunday 18th to Thursday 22nd June, so hope to see you all again soon, and I would also like to thank Keith for his help with the flags and gazebo etc. Thanks again for your support in attending. Debbie and Phil.

Photo Challenge - May Update
 

A healthy 42 points scored this month despite the rapid rise in the cost of fuel towards £2 per litre for our bikes.


There doesn't appear to be any finishers yet, among the seventeen starters, however, five people are already over half-way through the challenge.


North Devon seems to attract the most visits whereas East Dorset isn't so popular, so far.


I've chosen the attached photo by Vince Jennings at Croyde Beach Cafe as photo of the month.
