Corona Virus update 2 July 2020
The government has announced relaxation of the lockdown restrictions.
We wil act in accordance with all restrictions designed to keep us safe, restrict the spread of the virus,and protect the NHS, Rides have recommenced, with the recommended social distancing and group size. As it is still not certain whether refreshment venues will be open, it is recommended that members bring their own lunch and drink on the ride.
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 had intended to go to Spa in Belgium in May. Unfortunately because of the COVID-19 pandemic this trip has been postponed and will take place in May 2021.
