2nd June: Meet The Chapter - every first Saturday of the month Mar-Oct) at Warr's SE.
24th June: TT Run rideout - Nick Franklin.
Unusually our ride this month heads north into the gorgeous Essex summer countryside, taking in some of the best biking roads this often overlooked county has to offer.
Outward ride is approximately 75 miles with a comfort break around the 50 mile mark at the historic Andrewsfield Aerodrome.
The ride then heads to Finchingfield which is a chocolate box type picturesque English village, very popular with bikers and tourists alike - nothing to do with it's super selection of pubs and tea rooms - so lots to choose from for members at rides end.
Those who've ridden with us before will know this is a favoured Meridian ride destination but be assured by ride leader Nick this years serving enlists a complete set of new hiways and byways that will be sure to impress.
Meet at Warr's SE by 9.30am. Please remember to respect the neighbours and keep the noise down upon arrival. Current card holding Chapter members only. Be sure to arrive with a full tank.
July 5th-8th: Premier Chapter Event Prague (Event now Full)
July 22nd: Incognita rideout - Bernie C.
August 4-12: Castles & Coastline UK Ride event - Dave M.
So what’s that all about you may ask – well in answer to the question, it’s your plan, your ride!
The theme can be Castles, Light houses or Lifeboat Stations – Your choice, any one of the three (but not a combination) locations to visit anywhere around the UK. It could be Lighthouses around the coastline or Lifeboat Stations around the coastline or Castles located anywhere. Get it?!
The ride itself will be part of the qualifying criteria for a silver rocker – to achieve this level though, a minimum of 6 locations and minimum 500 miles must be completed.
You can of course do more and you can of course do less in terms of the number of locations and miles - You can ride for as many or as few days as you wish within the dates allocated.
All riders will depart from Warr's SE on the 4th (Meet the Chapter day) with outward mileage logged and return on the 12th with final mileage logged – we will also of course need proof of locations visited – more about that later.
All participants will receive a unique Meridian mini rocker and there will be a trophy for the rider or group of riders who cover the most locations and highest mileage.
So what is next? Think about it, plan and research it and most importantly mark it into the diary. Remember it is your plan and your ride, you can take just a day or so out or the whole week, you can ride alone or with your mates – you decide.... Get planning!
