the photos use a slide show type of presentation, just click any photo to start there.

14th July - 3 Castles Run
Organised by Andy - those turning out were Bryn T, John H, Andy W, Wayne B and Vince C. All went well I'm told, apart from Vince's Comet which decided to play up - so he headed home early.

16th June - Banbury Run
As usual, I was voluteered to sort out the concours awards for the Banbury. It was a super but tiring day, I must say. Luckily there were only around 350 machines that needed judging. One of the judges did not turn up, but I had the job done by just after noon. Richard Williams, who was our area rep, attended the trophy presentation and did not feel too well so called the paramedics and was soon on his way to hospital - he came out the following day with a pace-maker fitted and is now recovering well at home.

10th June - Bring a bike night
Not a great turn out but we had a very worthy winner in a 1935 Nimbus, ably restored by Robin Davies.

19th May - Black Mountain event
Rob and myself had entered this event and I managed to convince Howard that he should come with me as navigator. Basically, we had a good day out with a superb run around some of the lanes in the Black Mountain area.

14th April - Spring run
Bob, Bryn, Rob and Howard met up at Llanharry Workman's Club for the Spring Run. It was a bright morning as the Norton Commando, Triumph Bonneville, Velo MAC and Honda 400/4 headed through Pencoed and then west along the A48. We joined the M4 for one junction before heading up the valley towards Afon Argoed and Cymmer. We stopped at the Bwlch for a cup of tea as the weather had turned chilly. From here Bob and Bryn headed to Maesteg and home while Rob and Howard journeyed through the Rhondda to Aberdare and another tea stop before they reached home.

6/7th April - Cheddar weekend
Howard and Carol, Rob Jones, Bruce and Di, plus Jean and myself all entered the Cheddar weekend. Rob managed to win his class, whilst the rest of us all disappeared without trace on the results sheet. Jean was unable to ride with me, so Rob opted to navigate on the Saturday and we had a good day out, despite getting my Lomax sideways on one rather mucky lane. It rained at one point and Rob and I were mesmerised by the windscreen wiper on the Lomax, which actually worked and was doing a good job. So much so that we missed the next instruction on the route sheet, however, all turning out ok in the end.

27th March
This day was the bus trip to Sammy Millers Museum. Things got off to a start at 8am, with a near full bus. The trip was slowed by a few traffic queues on the way, but the visit was good, including a personal tour of the workshop by Sammy himself. The trip back home was nice and straight forward with a good day having been had by all.

22nd January
This evening was to be our presentation dinner at the Llanharry club, but we cancelled it as there was poor support. We did give out the few trophies that we could though.
