Coalville Brass Monkey charity run 6/1/19

#1 Post by Snod Blatter » Wed Jan 02, 2019 10:43 pm

Thought I'd post that "The Vic" in Coalville is having their annual charity ride this Sunday, in their words:

"MEET AT THE VIC FROM 12 NOON for a 1.30 departure ---- on return free soup and a roll - bonfire - plus 2 solo acts -- £5 per bike plus donation from passengers - all proceeds to Rainbows Childrens Hospice"

I've done it a few times, s'alright I guess but people seem to come from miles around to take part. Details of the route can be found here, I can offer no insight on the solo acts though - that bit is new! Perhaps an effort to keep people (and their wallets) at the pub for a bit afterwards and not just riding off straight after. Also it is always suitably cold, obviously.

Anyone interested?

Well, unlike you boring bunch of so-and-so's I went and had a perfectly agreeable time. Quite a few turned out, definitely more than last year which may be because it wasn't really that cold this time around!

I ended up following a CB250RS which made my day, proper bike that!

Also definitely did not race a 68 plate Golf GTI. Definitely did not amaze the driver that an F reg BMW can pick up its skirt and fly. That definitely never ever happened.

Looks like you picked a good weekend for it, surprisingly decent weather for January! Maybe you’ll have another member joining next year if I pass my DAS when I actually book it :)

If you get yourself a 125 in the meantime don't be put off, I think we only hit 60MPH a couple of times and the rest is decidedly relaxed.. All group rides seem to be the same.
