Our Club Nights are on the second Wednesday evening of each month at the Carpenters
Arms, Bransgore BH23 8DA from 7.30pm. In the summer we usually turn up on our motorbikes
(if they are working) but the main object is meeting to have a natter, a noggin and
oggle the brilliant bikes that turn up. Sometimes we organise talks or other interesting
events. Sometimes we have impromptu runs out.
Informal Meetings are held Thursdays (9pm) at the Tyrells Ford Hotel throughout the
year and Monday evenings at the Carpenters, Bransgore (7.30pm) throughout the Winter.
In the summer we meet outside the Carpenters on Mondays (7.30pm) and go for a ride
if the weather isn’t too bad. If there are no special events on a few of us will
usually meet up at Mudeford Quay early afternoon on a Sunday and then maybe have
a ride out to a New Forest Inn.
Runs start at 11am (sign on from 10.30am) unless otherwise specified.
We operate a 2nd man drop off system on all runs. Each Run will have a Run Leader
and Tail-end Charlie whom will be pointed out at the start. At every junction or
turning point, the Run Leader will signal to the bike immediately behind to stop
and give ongoing direction to all the bikes following. The dropped off person must
not move until the Tail End Charlie arrives, and signals them to resume their ride
at the back of the queue, but in front of the Tail End Charlie. This means that no-one
needs any map-reading skills or sat-nav; no-one should get lost and the pace of the
run is balanced to cater for slower bikes. The Tail-end Charlie cannot stop for breakdowns
but should provide you with brief instructions on how to reach the finishing point.
