The New Year is now with us and the nights are getting lighter - honest they are, and spring will be with us in no time so start making plans for all the riding that you're going to do this year.
I now have to start thinning out the website, as it's filling up to the point where performance will degrade. So, I've removed the old archived annual reports for 2009 to 2016. Whilst they cannot  be found on the website any more, I shall retain them in an archive of 'old' pages on my computer. If you want to see, just let me know and I can sort that out for you. From now on all I intend to keep is the current and previous years reports, found in the Lounge - link above.

Merry Christmas everyone - it seems to have sneaked up on me this year and I haven't dressed the website up with some festivity, apologies for that. See you at noon at the Red Lion, on the A48, Bonvilston, on Wednesday the 27th for the 'day after boxing day meet'.

We have 54 for the Xmas dinner next Monday - see you there.

Sorry to say that I only found out yesterday that one of our long standing members had passed away. David Jones, who lived in Pentyrch died last year. We had been wondering how he was as we hadn't seen David for some time. It seems that he went into hospital for a small procedure and died in the night. David hadn't been out on his BMW for many a year, but he always kept the bike MOT'd and taxed in his garage. I spoke to his widow Mary and extended our condolences.

20th November
Rob J has sent me some information from an organisation that intends to run a road race meeting on the Eppynt circuit in 2018. Up until this year it required an Act of Parliament to suspend the Road Traffic acts and close a road for motorsports use, but that restriction has been lifted as from 10th April 2017. Have a look at the new organisations webpage here when you get a chance. If you scroll down the page you'll note that the organisation has pinched Geoff Thomas's article on Eppynt from our website without asking. Geoff's article is in the Library.

Some notes and photos of the handing over of our charity cheque to the Wales Air Ambulance now on the 2017 reports page in the Lounge.

8th November

At our last committee meeting when we attempted to fix our dates for 2018 we discussed the Boxing Day and New Years day runs. The committee felt that these rides would be better if they did not take place on Boxing day and New Years day due to family commitments etc, so we agreed to hold these runs on the Day after Boxing day and the Day after New Years day. The Lamb and Flag in Wick has not been very welcoming for the past few years so the venue has been changed to the Red Lion in Bonvilston. We have made arrangements with the pub and are assured that food will be available for those that want it - please let the committee know so that we can warn the pub. The Victoria Inn in Sigingstone is to be the venue for the Day after New years day meet. 12 noon onwards at each pub. Details on the Events Calendar in the Lounge. Any changes will be made there over the next few weeks and other events will be added as we firm them up.
