Breakfast in the Forest

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

As a branch our members are spread over a very wide area and it is not easy for us to be able to get together for a branch run; however with the prospect of a free breakfast and a run through some of Gloucestershire’s finest Ian managed to gather enough support to do this our fourth only run since the branch was formed.  Starting from the Oakwood we meandered through the lanes following the steady thump of Ian’s Model 18  the only problems encountered being one very frisky horse and another not so frisky with the young girl riding it more interested in her mobile phone than what was happening around her!                                                                                                                  

On the way we picked up Chris S and Jill who took over the lead to help us find our destination which was the home of Chris Norton in the village of Ruspidge near Cinderford.  Chris in a moment of madness had offered to provide us all with a ‘Full English’ which after we had parked the bikes and disrobed he duly did

On behalf of those of us who were able to take part in this run I would like to give a big ‘Thank You’ to Chris & Sharon for the making us all so welcome and for the providing us with such a magnificent spread
