I'm still ok for a run down on Saturday.

Wotcha.

 

Just a thought - after looking on the map - maybe meeting up at the cafe on Wellesbourne Airfield . . . it's about 40 miles from each of us . . . . . then sort of head London-ish on the A34 - A44 - A40 . . . which just happens to go past Chris's cafe thumbs-up

Wotcha.

Ok - so anyone from the Midlands area wanting to run down with us  . . . . how does meeting at the above cafe at around midday sound ?  Have a bite to eat, then set off in a London-ish direction, sort of taking in a bit of the Cotswolds and missing the middle of Oxfordsmile

No plans set in concrete - just take it as it comes..............I mean - we will be riding Bantams . . . .  what could possibly go wrong ?get-me-coat

Sounds good to me.  1 o'clock it is.thumbs-up

I'll probably head straight through the middle of B'ham ( just for the Hell of it laugh ) and poke my nose in at  the BSA factory on the way there. . . . .Autoroute says 1 hour & 9 minutes . . . .I take it Autoroute has never been along the Stratford Road on a Saturday morning laugh

LW - I'll try to get to Chris's cafe for 9am - I'm going to park up at Lewknor on the Watlington-Princes Ris road and ride up the A40. If I don't show at 9, carry on and I'll make my own way over to the Ace.

See you there, one way or another.

Nice one, 9 sounds good,

Well have a choice of going straight along the M40 or through Wycombe, beaconsfield, amersham, the chalfonts and along the A40 up to hanger lane.
