  • The Friday Ride to Cirencester (Paul Cutler)


    Description:

    Paul will be leading a ride Friday mid-morning to the Royal Agricultural University at Cirencester. The ride will start from Rykas for those who live in that neck of the woods, then ride to GHD to collect more participants and then onto the Iron Bull (Basingstoke) to collect the participants from that catchment area.

    We will then take some less ridden roads to the M4 J15 (A419) avoiding the M4 if possible to arrive in Cirencester just after lunch so we have time to check-in, have a look around, fresh-up and then "hit the cans" when the bar opens at 4pm.

    Total ride time about 2.5 hours and around 100 miles. If I can find somewhere to stop around 45 minutes after Iron Bull Roadhouse I will stop for 5-10 minutes.

    The rough plan (still to be confirmed) is as follows:

    The ride should be at the meet location prior and will wait until the departure time to depart (as it says on the tin).

    Leave Rykas 10:00am
    Leave GHD 11:00am
    Leave Iron Bull 12:00pm
    Hopefully we will have a short break somewhere on-route to A419
    Leave ESSO Calcutt approximately 1:45pm
    Arrive RAU between 2:00pm and 2:30pm

    Please note this plan is subject to change but will be final prior mid next week.

  • The Great Shalford Fair (Julian Bennett)


    Description:

    We have been asked by the Shalford Community if the local Hogsback Chapter could do a ride past the Common & Cricket Ground on September 5th and then exhibit our bikes for people to look at them for there inaugural Fair.   

    The Great Fair of Shalford 2021 takes place on Sunday 5th September 2021 and promises to be a perfect end-of-summer social and a time to eat, drink, dance and socialise again at a family-friendly event that celebrates life getting back to normal! This once famous event is being brought back to life to celebrate our vibrant local community, with lots of laughter, music and fun for everyone, young or old to enjoy. There is a farmers Market stalls, dog show, fun fair, band(s), beer tent, Silent Pool Gin, classic cars etc.

    Meet at GHD 1.30pm to depart at 1.50pm for a short ride to Shalford, down to Bramley (A281) and loop back round via Wonersh and along Christmas Hill to the Shalford roundabout and then into the cricket ground off the A281 for the display.  

    The event opens at 11 and closes about 5.30pm

    Should be a good afternoon and it would be really great if we can get a good number of members with there Harleys for the display and support our local Community.

    Some background history .... Centuries ago the Great Fair of Shalford was an eagerly anticipated annual event so notorious that it emerged by decree of King John in 1287 and attracted thousands of traders from all over the country to sell their wares, bringing with them plenty of good old fashioned merriment to our beautiful village.

  • Ken Weldmar Hospice (Ken Hall)


    Description:

    Come and join Ken to spread some big smiles!

    A long and tedious ride to Dorchester along mainly A roads and motorways to Dorchester to the Weldmar hospice, where we will have an enthusiastic welcoming committee, with patients and staff to take out on the back of our bikes! 

    These hospice rides are so much fun and helping patients cross “Harley Ride” off their bucket lists is heart warming in the extreme. Last years ride (and this years from April) were cancelled down to Covid, and now they are all very excited to see us again! If you feel able to take someone out, bring a spare jacket and helmet. 

    Otherwise come along and chat with the patients, chat with the angels who work there, let them sit on your bike for a photo, it will be so worth the journey and the day off work. 

    About 100 miles and 2 hours one way; 

    Meet 8:30 GHD for 8:45 wheels roll (stands-up)
