Well, I think I can sum up our series of daytime get togethers for this year in three words; a great success !
Between the first weeks of April and November we met ten - that's right, ten - times.
Our first meeting was on April Fools Day - after midday, of course - at Woodhall Spa's Dambusters memorial. Then we moved to the Jubilee Park café for the next four; one of which included a circuit in the Wolds with a lunch stop at JJ's café at Hagworthingham. Of the remaining five, three started with a drink and chat at Willingham Woods followed by a circuit in the western (?) end of the Wolds taking in a lunch stop at the B17 café at Binbrook, one back at Woodhall Spa and the other - on a Saturday - at the Bardney Station Heritage Centre café. At this one we mustered eight Bantams; our best effort this year, though a couple short of last year's double figure record. As if this wasn't enough we were invited to the Poacher Club's charity event at Woodhall Spa. Half a dozen of us went and had a fantastic afternoon. The display, and age range, of bikes - all of which had been ridden there - was almost unbelievable. Also, four of us met the resurgent Lincolnshire section of the Two Stroke Club at the Bubblecar museum near Langrick Bridge, half a dozen attended area rep Richard's barbeque near Skellingthorpe and a couple rode to the Wainfleet bike day, at which Robbie Brown was showing his Bantam racer and sprinter.
All in all, then, we've had a great year so I'd like to thank everybody who came to any of the above daytime get togethers. Between us, added together, we must have done many hundreds of miles and the only two mishaps that come to mind are one rider running out of petrol (oh, dear) and another with a front wheel puncture on which he managed to ride home !
If you've not been managed to get to any of our meetings yet hopefully what I've written might tempt you to get your Bantam out in the Spring and join in with us. It would be great to see you. Ken.
