It is time for me to grovel, contrary to the last newsletter, Dave T did provide me wth a report on this run, my sloppy management of my e-mail meant that I missed it. My apologies Dave.
The run to the Marrowbone and Cleaver at Kirmington was very popular, the weather was so good even Al Thompson ventured out!
12 bikes left the Hammer and Pincers (or was it 13), and at least 2 had pillion riders.
A steady ride to Revesby via Langrick Bridge and Frithville ensued with the group keeping together, followed by a blast through the deer park. The deer park was incident free although some riders complained of a near miss with unknown bikers coming the other way using all the road. Personally I have no objection to using all the road but only if you can see far enough ahead to be sure you’re not endangering yourself or anyone else.
The group re-assembled in the big lay-by just before Horncastle and trundled through the town up to Caistor High Street, one of my favourites (in a long list, we are very lucky living in Lincs, the number of good riding roads is far higher than in other parts of the country).
Going straight across the by-pass when reaching Caistor we continued on the A1173 for a short distance before two slight lefts put us on the bumpy back road passed the edge of Humberside Airport, and on to the pub.
Inside the pub is a very nice example of a BSA Rocket 3, own and raced by Guy Martin’s father.
The ride back was brisk although the group was somewhat smaller as many people made their own way home.
Roll on the next one.
