Knights Watch Rideout - 20th August 2023

We all set off for our ride that promised and delivered great weather and great roads. Harleys at their best are on long sweeping roads and that's what we had all the way through our journey. At our comfort stop at Lill's cafe in Rolvenden (a biker's favourite) we had the pleasure of a bi-plane circling overhead that for a moment meant we took our eyes off the large slices of cake that some struggled with, fortunately the human vacuum RC Bernie Cresswell was on hand!


Well-fed and watered we set off again with even better roads ahead of us where we were able to make good progress with a little sparkle in places, a great route for anyone contemplating advancing their motorcycle skills. Through Appledore with some twisting roads it wasn't easy to recognise the figures on top of the iconic oast houses... was that a cat licking its paw or a monkey?! Then over New Romney to The old Lighthouse.
All good things must come to an end but not quite so since at our journey's end we had sunshine and gentle breeze coming off the sea and a landscape of total tranquillity, there's enough panoramic view to ignore the wee power station. And, one couldn't resist the sight of the 1/3 scale steam locomotives that operate along the coast here and then lunched at one of the two venues (snack shack, a particular scrummy venue for fresh fish and scallops!)  


Thanks to RC Alan Wright who uncovered a monument to some Polish Spitfire Pilots who paid the ultimate price by the shorefront.


And well done to all who came along to support this Meridian ride and to the road crew, with last man RC Steve Uffindell ensuring we all arrived in formation.


Until the next adventure.


All The Best Bill Delieu
