UK Rideout Sat 7th Sept 2019

Here is the proposed route:

https://www.google.com/maps/dir/Moto...d51.658486!3e0


I've stuck with the formula on the previous rideout to respect the distances that some may have to ride to get to the start point, and then return home.

Meet at Chieveley services (M4 junction 13) at 9:30, departing at 10:00, followed by a 40 minute ride, stop for coffee, another 40 minute ride followed by lunch.
There are also some photo opportunity stops during the rides 'cos we'll be travelling through some stunning countryside!

As Greybeard is unable to attend this rideout, he will be joining me on a proving run of the route the weekend before (Saturday 31st August).
If anyone else cannot make the 7th September, please join us.

Very sad to learn that you canít make it along on the 7th Greybeard... but with Johnny being faced with the tough decision between me or you I feel he choose wisely! Of course Iím joking... Iím genuinely gutted you canít make it. Perhaps Iíll come along to the proving ride the week before also just to say hi

Obviously I'm very sorry not to be able to make the 7th but looking forward to trying the route the week before! Perhaps you could all wear false beards to remind each other how much you'll miss me?!

It's some way for me from Thatcham, but if it is dry I will venture out.

I really wish you could be there Malcolm, (aka GB).... It feels wrong that you canít make it along given that you played such a key role in our last gathering. I appreciate itís tricky to ensure all can attend but I would feel a lot happier with you onboard. I canít remember without looking at the other post... but weíre you unable to make Sept 14th?

Johnny... sorry to even dare to try and bugger up your efforts. Forgive me!

Mike, please don't worry - it's best to stick to the 7th now otherwise it'll just confuse things! I'm very happy to be able to join Johnny for the route check up.
