Ride To WSM - Easter Sunday

Hi chaps - hope you and your scooters are all keeping well!

We are having our traditional Easter rideout on Sunday 1st April, and we'll be meeting up as usual at The Arnolfini at 11 o'clock and setting off around midday and heading towards WSM.

As you all know, the weather over Easter can vary from nice and sunny to chuffing freezing! Apparently the Beast From The East is still lurking and may return sometime during this week, so who knows what Sunday will be like!

All being well we will be parking up as we usually do near the Classic Car Show on The Lawns and getting some hot coffee (Yippee!) and maybe fish'n'chips! (Hooray!) Well, we really do know how to live it up don't we!

Ah, the good old days when it was sunny every day!

So here is the plan-





Also keep your eye on this forum for Ian's posting with the details for our Second Sunday meet up in April. Thanks Ian!

Fingers crossed for some reasonable weather and with a bit of luck hopefully see you all on both Sundays!

Any probs on the day, please call or text me on 07816 194736.

And as always, please take great care and ride really safely!

Thanks Norm! Yes, Easter Sunday is usually a day for seeing the family so unfortunately not everyone was able to get out on the scoots today!

However, we had a respectable turnout down the Arno all things considered and a good trouble free ride to the coast! ( I know, it's not really the coast, but WSM is the best we can do! )

A little bit on the cool side, ( we've done this ride on much colder days! ) but at least it was dry, and not snowing!!! And for once, we picked the best day out of the Easter Weekend to have our ride, but that was more by luck than judgement!

A slap up lunch of fish chips'n'mushy peas and a hot mug of tea soon warmed us up nicely, and the classic car show there was excellent as usual! We parked up alongside of the show, and our scooters were very much appreciated, although I lost count of how many times we were asked "Where are all the rockers then?"

We are having our 'Second Sunday' meet up next weekend, and there will shortly be a posting on this forum about that!

Hopefully the weather will be kind to us again!

Many thanks to all who turned up today, and I hope to see you all out on the scoots again sometime soon!

Take care and ride safe!
