August should be a safe bet in terms of weather, but the annual Roy’s Run was a mixture of rain and shine. With 35 miles before lunch and a further 25 after, the condition of the roads turned some sections into ‘a true test of man and machine’ as those old 1950s road tests used to say. Still, a good lunch stop followed by afternoon tea and cakes kept our intrepid Douglas riders focused! Thanks go to Roy Staunton for organising the event.
October’s outing is to the regular Wednesday motorcycle meeting at Jack’s Fish & Chips in Bagshot, on the 9th. More details from email@example.com
