It's The Bristol Volksfest this coming weekend, and we will be riding there on the Saturday to show our scooters.

We've been attending and supporting Volksfest for many years now, and it's always been a great day out!

It's being held at the same showground as last year at Birches Farm Long Ashton Bristol.

We'll be meeting up at The Arnolfini on Saturday at 10:30am and departing from there around 11:30am.

Really hope you can make this and join us on the day!

Here's the main details again-

THIS SATURDAY 16TH JUNE

BETWEEN 11:00AM AND MIDDAY

Weather is looking a bit damp for tomorrow morning, so with that in mind, we will be leaving the Arnolfini at the slightly later time of 12:30.

So if it is raining first thing this will give you the option of hanging on a bit and leaving your house a little later, and hopefully avoid getting too wet!!

Or you could wait a bit longer, and ride direct to the Volksfest a bit later on in the afternoon on your own!

Accurately forcasting these showers is a bit hit and miss for the met office guys, so we might not even get any at all!

Sorry for the lateness of this update, but I was hanging on to see what the latest forecast was.

Let's see what it's like in the morning and hopefully we might get lucky!

Despite the gloomy weather forecast we had a really great turnout from our guys today for The Bristol Volksfest!

Bit of a light shower on the ride there, and a short spell of heavier rain later on in the afternoon, by which time we were sheltering in the beer tent!

Our line up of scoots was really impressive, and we gave the crowds a good show of mod scooters to admire!

Many thanks to everyone who ignored the forecast and got the scoots out to support our club - very much appreciated!

Hope to see you all again sometime soon! (Hopefully on a nicer sunny day!)
