October 2023

Hi Folks,

Firstly date change for our Rabbit Rally 2024 June 20th/23rd due to venue availability issues.

Colin & Eileen led the breakfast run to Orchard Tea Rooms on the Saturday 6th August. Chris N was unfortunate to get a puncture on the way home but with a little team work with Howard and Rod managed to repair it and get him mobile again.

Good turn out for the club night run to The Halfway House Brenchley on Wednesday 9th, as was the breakfast run to Ripley's Garden Centre Bethersden with John finding some lovely lanes. If they were not covered with grass they had gravel instead! all good fun.

Wednesday 16th it was our second British Bike Night the year again at The Robin Hood, we had over 70 bikes turn up and a good bit raised for our charity SERV, The Blood Runners of Sussex. It was good to see some of the Medway Branch ride down and join us. Thank you Mandy and Ros for doing the teas and coffees.

Well done to Brian B who managed 4 pubs on our summer crawl round Hastings Old Town on the 19th. The rest of us stayed in The Dolphin as we had seats and they had fine ales.

Sunday 17th a group of us visited the Dover Transport Museum "Anything Triumph Day" led by Colin & Eileen stopping off at The Clifftop Cafe Capel-le-ferne for breakfast on route. great day out. Thank you Colin for arranging it and taking us on an even worse loan than John did, but the view at the top of it was stunning over looking Eurotunnel and Folkestone.

Our last club night ride out of the year to The White Hart Newenden proved very popular with 21 on the run and 7 meeting us there. Thank you Bob for sorting the lovely Buffett out with the pub, it went down well.

Saturday 30th September charity meal and quiz night at the Robin Hood 6:30pm (now postponed)
