Last Virtual Ride-out

Ken Voller gave us an amazing trip around the 5 counties near Hampshire and 5 places to go and see on your bike.There were also two excellent caffs to go and enjoy.

Nigel took us on a trip along the Trampolino del Diablo in Colombia which he found by accident and wishes that he hadn’t.

That’s our last Virtual Ride Out and thanks to everyone who lead a ride and all those that entered into the spirit of the events. Turning up in helmets and even in the saddle of their own bikes.

Mid April Virtual Ride

We had a brilliant Virtual Group Ride using Zoom on Sunday 26 April.

Nigel took us to the Salisbury Plain over gravel roads and ammunition on the ground. The roads are smooth and perfectly fine for road tyres. If there is a red flag flying then do not proceed. If stopped by a sentry – do not proceed. As long as they are not using the Range, you can ride at a moderate speed all day, off road and not annoy anyone.

Here is a coordinate to find the middle of nowhere: N51° 14.767′ W1° 42.066′ Put that into your GPS and ride the plain.

You can find the GPX file for this ride on our website under Group Rides.

Then Wendy Peters took us up to the Manali to Leh road in India. A trip that she has ridden 3 times and 2 more in a truck.

You can find that road HERE It is called the National Highway 3 but it is anything but a highway.

It’s sudden drops and precipitous edged for 500kmh into the Himalayas.

Wendy told us of bandits, snow, rockfalls and the time that their ride-leader sat on a box of dynamite.

Please join us soon for another virtual ride out.

Easter Monday Virtual Ride

The club had a second ride-out on Easter Monday with 22 riders. Jim Hubbard took us to Spain’s amazing N260 in the Pyrennes. Riding from the Atlantic to the Med. Look up the village of Perves to see why he loves it.

Then we went to an amazing cafe in Hampshire called the Handlebar Cafe with Mark Noy. It’s south of Winchester with SO23 9PA as it’s postcode.

Lastly we visited coordinates 54.455411,-2.1605804 which took us to Tan Hill Inn in North Yorkshire. God’s Own Country. 

Everyone got round safely, no punctures and nobody got lost.

Big Thanks to Jim and Mark.
