Last Saturday, in the rain, Gypsy, Jules and I did a recce run up to the London Bike Museum: see London Motorcycle Museum (http://www.london-motorcycle-museum.org/)

We met up at Clacketts Lane services on the M25 and did the easy way to Greenford via the M25/M4/A312 and B455 (called in Amys cafe for a brekkie) and then left into Oldfield Lane Sth - about 400 yds on the left was the museum (spotted by the Eagle eyed Jules). We did discuss the possibility of including a visit to the Ace Cafe but it was a bit wet & 'orrible so we buggered off home once we had seen the bikes and watched a video. There was also a building with old items of our youth, the items we all had kicking around the house when we were kids (or in my case when I was a big kid) Jules and I spent some time in there cos it was interesting. (only £1 entry to this unit -- £3 entry to see the bikes --- super value cos it included a coffee as well)

The guys from Region 17 have got a visit planned for the 21st of this month. I reckon it would make a good day out if we joined in with them, dunno how many of them will go but it could be an impressive turn out if we did it together. Another item to discuss on Wednesday at the Woolpack.

Spoke with Karl at the Crown, he is keen on going, Tim 'Twoskips maybe. Nobody else I spoke to wants to go as far as I know -- maybe it's as Janie has said, Fathers Day on the Sunday.

Actual plan now - Leave Boship at 8:30, meet Tim at 9:00 at Bolney then onward and upward. Region 17 not going now:frown:.
Try the new cafe, museum, then stop at Ace, onto the Bikesafe show
At the mo it's: Si / Jen, me / Val, Tony / Jo and Tim.


Come on everybody else where are you?? ( especially those that moan that we don't do enough )...... Rant over now:smile:
