Rideout Reports

Rideouts are organised on the 2nd and 4th Sundays of each month. A list of rideouts can be found here. During the summer months, May to Sept, midweek evening rideouts are also organised.

The first rideout of each month is usually fairly local and so that you can be home for lunchtime. The second rideout of each month is usually to a more distant destination and can last until late afternoon. However, members can leave the rideout at any point if they want to, just let the organiser know.

The rideout coordinator has an e-mail distribution list of motorcycle members and sends out an e-mail about the rideout during the previous week.

During the winter, November to February, there are no destinations listed since the rideouts depend on the weather and the coordinator will let members know what is happening.

Reports on the 2019 rideouts will appear here as they happen.

Ride to Skegness 28th April 2019

Six bikes turned out for the ride to Skegness on what was a breezy and chilly day. Chairman Soji made a seventh bike but due to work commitments, he had to return to King’s Lynn early so left us at Horncastle.

The ride took us up the A17 and then across the Lincolnshire Fens to Horncastle. From there it was across the Wolds past Cadwell Park to Louth. Don’t let anyone tell you that Lincolnshire is flat. The road past Cadwell climbs and dives, twists and turns, and has long views across Lincolnshire. A road well worth riding (or driving). There’s a lot of new white paint on this road. Preparing for the traffic heading for the Cadwell Park race circuit this Summer, I suppose.

From Louth we followed main roads to Skegness, initially another rolling road across the Wolds but then flat across the Fens to Skegness. Unusually Skegness has a dedicated motorbike park which is free and close to the amenities. Not many bikes in there this morning - only one other apart from us. Too cold and windy for many with a drop of rain thrown in.

After tea/coffee/hot chocolate and a chat in a beachside cafe it was home again via Boston. The weather was sunny when we got back to Norfolk, just right for a bit of gardening according to my wife. Payback for being out on my bike all morning I suppose.
