Hi All,

Here is my monthly update for you all - we are starting to see a good uplift in the number of riders attending rides as we get back to some normality after Covid lockdown, and increasingly as you may have seen in the Chairman's report of Steve and Johns ride last week, more with their partners riding pillion, which is a really pleasing trend to see.

Next Club night 20.00 8th June at the Bell Inn Woodham Ferrers CM3 8RG (what three words iterative.tougher.recital)

This month due to the rain on club night last month we will be holding the delayed "Pride of Ownership" contest. I will be leading a ride in from Hammonds Road (further details below) and our Chairman has designed and produced some spectacular trophies so it's really worth cleaning the cobwebs off your pride and joy giving it a wax and polish and bringing it along.

July's club night In view of the ride in and "Pride of Ownership" deferral George has agreed to defer his long awaited presentation until July's club night so mark that in your diaries now

Future rides

PLEASE NOTE THAT FOR ALL FUTURE RIDES THE RIDE LEADER WILL NEED TO SEE YOUR CURRENT MEMBERSHIP CARD - IF YOU ARE UNABLE TO SHOW THIS THEN REGRETFULLY YOU WILL BE UNABLE TO PARTICIPATE IN THE RIDE - THE ONLY EXCEPTION WILL BE FOR GUESTS WHO WILL BE PERMITTED TWO RIDES ONLY TO HELP DECIDE WHETHER OR NOT TO JOIN We will also be collecting a one pound donation towards club funds.

Pride of Ownership ride in 8th June n.b. this is an evening ride

As you will no doubt be aware, due to the heavy rain at our last club night we decided to postpone the "Pride of Ownership" competition to June. Accordingly I have agreed to lead another ride in after John put in all the effort last month. The ride will meet at Hammonds Road layby (what three words spoon.mops.puts) 18.30 for a 19.00 departure, and will be approximately 20-30 miles culminating at the club night at Bell Inn Woodham Ferrers

Wed 15th June Midweek run

Dave Iszard will be leading a mid week ride starting from the Museum of Power Langford CM9 6QA 9.30 for 10 o/c start (what three words reclaimed.regulate.presented). It will be an approximately 70 mile round trip. Coffee stop. Lunch at Acton Crown, Sudbury, Suffolk.

Wednesday 22nd June Evening ride Cancelled

Please note that although this is still in the calendar this ride is CANCELLED as we have no volunteers to lead it 😥

Sunday June 26th Breakfast run

Lesley Willmore will be leading a breakfast run starting from the Tesco Car park Coggeshall Road BRAINTREE - Postcode CM77 8AA (what three words costs.pace.goats) 8.30 for a 9.00 start this will a ride of approximately 37 miles to Round Bush Pub and Cafe Purleigh nr Maldon. Please note if you intend to have breakfast, food will need to be ordered in advance via Lesley, people can ring her on 07971266167 - The menu is attached to this email, and orders need to Lesley by the latest 19th June as the Cafe needs 1 weeks notice.

That's all for now - hope to see some of you on Wednesday evening.
