Corona Virus update 24 March 2020

The government has announced restrictions on leaving the house wich are in place until Easter.

This means that the next planned ride on 7 april cannot take place, and is cancelled.

We wil act in accordance with all future restrictions designed to keep us safe, restrict the spread of the virus,and protect the NHS, but rides will only be cancelled one at a time, so that we can get back on the road as soon as it is safe to do so.

The Motorbike Group is open to all U3A members, male or female, with an interest in motorbikes. While there is an emphasis on riding, members who do not currently own or ride a motorbike are welcome to make contact.

Meetings are divided in a broadly seasonal manner, with summer and/or good riding days used for longer planned rides with specific purpose in mind, and winter and/or poor riding days are used for social meetings, to plan and/or review activities.

The non-riding meetings are also used to share experience and expertise, and also to look at member's projects.

We plan to ride on 1st Tuesday and 3rd Thursday of the month. Members of the group share responsibility for planning rides. Details of the ride and meeting place are circulated during the week before each ride.

Outside of the planned meetings, members maintain a message circle to enable short notice link ups for ad-hoc rides.

The purpose of our rides is to enjoy them, not to thrash about as fast as possible, and this means using less busy roads with regular stops rather than motorways.

We had our first trip to Scotland at the end of April 2019. The overwhelming consensus was that this was a great succes, we got wet, saw some awesome countryside, had a few minor mishaps, got to know each other better and resolved to do it all again next year. As a result we are off to Spa in Belgium in May.
