Sorry, hijacking Dave Clough's Cambridge & Rutland Section notes here. And again sorry for the short (!) notice, I've just got back from holiday and had forgotten about this. Mainly for the Rutland members of the group but everyone welcome of course: Tomorrow, Sunday 2nd October, start time around 10.00am, is The British Two Stroke Club "Rutland Borders Run" which starts from Tilton-on-the-Hill, halfway between Oakham and Leicester. Usually a 50 mile or so route following a route sheet or, as some do, tag onto a group running at your chosen speed. Hopefully I will be there on my B175 but it hasn't been started for two weeks now, I'd better get out to the shed!

Well, it was an excellent run out today, 65 miles, should have been 63 but we missed a turn and had to backtrack! Fabulous small roads, some classed as "gated" ( to keep animals in ), around Leicestershire and Northamptonshire. Four Bantams attended, three of us rode round as a group at a steady speed and the other rider joined the main, faster group. I ride a lot of miles on my own so it was good to ride with other Bantams. My B175 trundles along happily at 40-45mph which suits me but seems to have lost it's edge on top speed; on the main road past Rutland Water I opened it up but it topped out at 54mph GPS speed, 60mph on the speedo, I might have to investigate. A good day out, thanks to the organisers.
