Anybody free on Sunday 26 April for a quick cuppa, up (or down) here in Yorkshire?

Two GREAT venues have been discussed - either Squires (Sherburn in Elmet) or Seaways (Fridaythorpe) a few people are interested BUT we thought it better to open this up to all!

Motor Sport Fans will know theres a lot happening that weekend - Moto GP in Japan, Grand Prix in Bahrain and WRC in Argentina, so I'm sure a slice of cake will also be required to draw people away from the TV Laughing

And what time is Sir thinking of meeting? I'm tempted ..... however, if you're meeting at some early hour then I'll be giving it a miss as it's either a 4 or 4.5hr blast each way for me. Twisted Evil

I'm NOT a morning person either!! taz

So a time to suit all (well as many as possible) will be agreed, just need to see who's interested.

We could do Fridaythorpe 1st and then Sherburn if that is easier for those travelling some distance (it's just off the A1) and then can split North & South (East or West) - Just a thought!?!

nige not sure if he can make it now - i've got to text martin (trafman) and he is going to meet me at the roundabout somewhere near humber bridge i think he said - so i'm thinking maybe i'll arrange to meet him at about 1230 now all i have to do is confirm that with him - think there was some bikesafe event on or something - then work back from there as to how long it'll take me to get to him so i know what time i'm leaving and if he is coming up to fridaythorpe too (and even if he isn't) it doesn't matter whether i'm there before everyone else or not (not that i'll be on my own anyway come to think of it as ellie and poss neil will be with me although Neil's mate is going to Deeping with some Hardly event and i think he was abandoning me to go there first!) i'll just drink the coffee urn dry.

So .... we're going with Fridaythorpe for the time being are we? ... and it's not the cafe in the woods its the other one?

Well as this is on my doorstep I have to attend so have moved the boys night out to Friday (how popular has that made me not) I am intent being at the Humberbridge car park (Meeting Suzie there before we go on to Seaways etc)from about 10.00am but thats only as I want to do a 3/4 hr rideout with Humberside police's top motor cycle instructor as he is one of the guys at the Bikesafe event which is on there. If anyone wanted to start their day before the meet up with a free 3/4 hr Bikesafe rideout with feedback then let me know and will book it for them or can sort it on the day if you turn up an hour or so before we need to leave for the main meet.
The Bikesafe event at the Humberbridge is run by my work colleagues and work mates so there is plenty chance of a free coffee and always other bike related things going on there with AIM, ROSPA, Bike training companies etc and often a dealer or two present. Its not unusual to have other little groups or clubs turn up likewise using it as a bike related meeting point. The bikesafe venue is in the main Bridge car park as you turn off Ferriby road towards the carpark there is a turning immediately left where you will see the Bikesafe stand and trailers etc. A decent place to make a get together before moving on to Seaways Biker cafe etc. If I miss seeing a T Cat arrive, just ask any of the Humberside Police bikers for Martin Moore and I will sort out a drink and look forward to saying hello.

Suzie has my mob number and happy for her to pass it on if she knows its going to a genuine T cat site member if you want any more info or to have a local point of contact feel free to give me a call if you want to ask anything else as I am on nights tonight it will be on even in the wee small hours just be aware if i am driving I need time to park up so if it rings off then ring straight back.

It is approx 35-40 mins to Seaways from the Bridge at a nice steady pace and taking in some very nice biking roads on route. If you do make your own way take it easy as Sunday will see unmarked and marked Police Bikes and cars including a nice black Hyabusa operating in the north of the county on the main biking routes. I would anticipate leaving the Humberbridge car park about 1pm ish based on Suzzie suggesting Seaways for 1.30pm.

I will answer any questions on here or feel free to PM me etc.

Cheers

Right 1.30 for 2 pm at Seaways at Fridaythorpe

Aiming to be with Martin for 1230 (weather/roads permitting). I've done the bikesafe observed runs before - for anyone that hasn't they are well worth it - i won't be partaking as i'm already sweating over my next observed run!!!

Anyone know how much for the bridge?
I've already had a trying experience with a toll bridge once this week (blooming Dunham Bridge on way back from Wee Mac - came different way home and forgot about it - landed up about 10 yards from it scrabbling about for 10p bloody skinflints grumpy - dropped 20p in the bike and was worried it would break something so then scrabbled about trying to dislodge it from where-ever it was before finding it 10mins later on the floor 3ft from the bike!!!!!
You'd have thought for 10p they'd have let me off - anyway i gave him 20 and waited for the change and held everyone up behind me by slowly putting on my gloves and zipping up my pockets again - wanted my monies worth! shit happens

I'm going to pay them in 1ps next time - that'll teach them naughty

So anyone else thinking of meeting up earlier at the Humber Bridge car park, let us know so we can keep an eye out for you. You dont have to have anything to do with the Bikesafe but sure you will get a coffee. Anyway its too nice out there to be inside so out the T cat comes and going for a little jaunt where ever that may take me.

Look forward to saying hi on Sunday

Be making me way up possibly with sgtbash mid morning ish.

Not sure of the route i'll be taking yet, likely to be the scenic way tho. Nice wee pootle up, scout around, then if time allows, lunch somewhere. Head into seaways for the meet and a coffee for 1:30 ~ 2.

See you all tomorrow Very Happy
