Social Ride Out for Full Members – Postponed
January 7 @ 09:00 - 15:00
New Year cobweb buster outing to the Barge Inn on the Kennet and Avon Canal
We’ve had the Holly and the Ivy, but forget that, its biking time again!
Assuming the suspension will take it after all those mince pies, it’s time to get the bike fired up for a gentle meander through the best of Somerset and Dorset for a great pub lunch!
Starting as usual behind the Honda garage in Dorchester, (is it time to stop calling it CW’s?) we’ll be taking a favourite route north for coffee at Haynes Motor Museum
Then, onto the Barge Inn at Honeystreet for lunch. We’ve been here before, and the food is always excellent. Also there’s plenty of space for us to gather round a big table for a post-Christmas natter before heading back to Dorchester – arriving at 3:00pm so there’s time to get home before it get dark
As this is a winter ride, we’ve deliberately chosen shorter legs and main roads so that we get maximum enjoyment without letting the cold get to us too much
And, if Santa brought you heated grips or new gloves, now would be a great time to test them out! No need to book for this one, just turn up at 9.00 am on the day.
The ride out is open to all Full Members and Pillions.
