Old Bikes Run – July
July 17 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm UTC+0
And now for something different…. On offer for your pleasure courtesy of Tim Bergin a steady jaunty ride back in time on those older bikes to Goodwood.
Sunday July 17th 9:00am for a pre-ride briefing – Start: 09:30am. Return anticipated around 3:30pm.
For those of you who have something that might best be described classic, vintage or simply old’ish (pre-1990), you are invited to join us for a ride with a difference.
We are hoping to get a collection of old, eclectic and unusual machines together for a spin over to Goodwood. The more unusual the better and anything 125cc and over.
The ride will be a nice relaxing jaunt over for a spot of lunch at Goodwood and a leisurely ride home again. Spanners to the ready!
If you have any bike that pre-dates 1990 and fancy coming along, you will be very welcome.
So, if you are interested, then please email firstname.lastname@example.org along with details of what you will be riding. If you have any photos to share of your pride and joy, then we would like to share those on our webpage and or Facebook forum.
Meeting Point Location: TBC – likely to be Tulleys or BuckBarn A24/A272
Lunch stop: Goodwood

We are ordering wall to wall sunshine for this event.
However, we shall be mindful of the weather for this outing and maybe postponed if we have Summer Storms forecast.
One of the riders will need to Back-Mark so any volunteer for this please advise the ride leader when you register for the ride. If you have an orange Hi-Viz please bring it with you, or one may be provided on the day, or dependant on the size of the group an alternative marker may be agreed.
Please make sure you are fully conversant with the rules of the “BACK-MARKER SYSTEM“. Following these correctly is vital to the smooth running of the day and reduces the risk of losing someone or everyone. Details of the BM system are on our Southernriders.org website. If you’re unsure on the day, ask one of the attending Ride Leader. They will be more than happy to clarify any issues you have.
If you wear hi-viz, please ensure it is not Orange as this is reserved for the ‘back-marker’ during our ride-outs. We appreciate you may normally wear an orange hi-viz whilst riding. However, some find it confusing when in the middle of the group to see two or more riders with the orange hi-viz. So, in an effort to avoid confusion and markers leaving their post prematurely ONLY the back-marker is to wear orange hi-viz. Thank you
