Le Grand Weekend en France

Thanks to Matt Howes for this ode to a recent trip to Normandy with four other members of the group!

Le Grand Weekend en France
aka  Five go to Honfleur

Five guys met up to go to Normandie one fine summer’s morn
They left from Duxford to arrive in Honfleur
And had the full English as is de-rigueur
There was much seafood & steak bleu
Excellent bières to wash it all down and some vin rouge too
Moules frites with cider and expresso with Calvados
Ice cream and apple tart, but no Crème Anglaise

They stroked cats in cafés
Gate crashed divorce parties
Moved locals from tables
Fought petrol pumps that weren’t able
Watched police race from the scene

There was much complaining about mushrooms
Tyres, suspension and setups
Impromptu off-roading
Lanes with grass in the middle
Fish soup……

There was lots of jeshing & joking too
With tall stories all told as the evenings progressed
Oh and yes we did do some motorcycling too

2018 Tour to France

A very successful tour was completed last week with a 2k mile round trip to the French Alps via Switzerland and Italy. Some fantastic roads, great company and superb food. Please let our Secretary know if you have any ideas for next years Tour or would like to help organise it.

 

 

CambsIAM at the Meldreth Show

Seasoned motorcycle enthusiasts in the region know, there’s only one place to be on the third Wednesday in June –  the Eternit Club in Meldreth, the venue for the annual Royston & District Motorcycle Club show

All proceeds from this event go to good causes, and Cambridge Advanced Motorcyclists were once again delighted to support the show with volunteers manning our marquee throughout the evening. Our own star of the evening was the ’77 MkI Moto Guzzi Le Mans which Andy May rode to the show, and which still sees regular touring duty (most recently a weekend trip to Scotland)

Our thanks to all the show-goers who expressed interest in our club – we hope to see you soon on a Sunday ride, or indeed to welcome you as new associates

 

On the Humber Bridge

All-day ride to the Humber Bridge

The group’s first all-day ride of 2018 took place on 10th June. Husband & wife team Martin & Janet Pinion planned this ride, with Martin leading the small but happy group of riders on the 260-mile round trip to the Humber Bridge

Lunch was at Barton-upon-Humber’s best kept secret, the Café & Restaurant at the Old Tile Works

Still kicking yourself for missing this ride? Janet’s annual Jolly to Aldeburgh is an event you won’t want to miss – add an entry in your diary now!
