Important information

On all club runs, riders are expected to keep an eye on the person behind. If they stop, you should also stop when safe to do so. This ultimately alerts the group leader that there is a problem, and enables a prompt recovery.

Orkney Classic Motor Show 1st & 2nd August

Following the success of the club trip to the Orkney Show in 2019, a similar trip is planned for 2020. There are a few options possible:-

  1. Show only.  Weekend visit, down on ferry Wednesday evening, back on Sunday evening.

  2. Orkney tour.  Down on ferry Wednesday evening, tour Orkney on Thursday and Friday, take part in the show Saturday and Sunday. Return on ferry on Sunday evening.

  3. North of Scotland tour.  Tuesday evening ferry to Aberdeen. Tour north of Scotland, riding 150/200 miles a day, taking in some of the most spectacular roads in Scotland. The route has still to be finalised, but Tomintoul, Ullapool and Durness have been mentioned. Catch the lunchtime ferry from Scrabster or Gill's Bay on Saturday to take in the Orkney Show on Saturday afternoon and Sunday.

Whilst it will be up to the members to book their own travel and accommodation, Lewie will advise where others are staying to allow coordination of the social activities. Option 3. via Aberdeen will take in some of the North West 500 route, hence accommodation may be more difficult to find. Therefore, it would be helpful if members notify Lewie Tulloch directly of their interest at the earliest opportunity.
