Road Run – 10th Oct – Frozen Chicken Run
A gentle run in support of the Air Ambulance; through the peaceful & quiet freezing autumn countryside, wending up and down ever narrower leaf lined muddy, dusty and potholed lanes. Gently brushing aside the frosted undergrowth, crossing the odd (frozen?) water feature and trying to avoid them not to mention the odd slimy deposits from local fauna (and tractors) you may even at times wonder what the hell possessed you to sign on!
This is specifically aimed at the smaller and slower (?) machinery we maintain, with the idea being no more than 350cc unless side valve or particularly old machinery. As this is a charity run and we are only interested in raising money for the air ambo, we do of course welcome modern bikes too, whilst mentioning the route may not necessarily be suited to, umm, ‘bypass’ tyres or pristine machinery.
Entry is £5 all of which is donated to the Air Ambulance.
We meet and starts at The Orchid Cafe, Westdale Park Nurseries, Holt Rd Bradford on Avon. BA15 1TS. They do a good breakfast at a good price.
Sign on from 10am, run starts approx 10.30. Note sharp turn from main road into site entrance from Holt direction!
This run was originally started predominantly for small cc bikes (less than 250cc) utilising back roads and small lanes for those who don’t mind
life being a bit exciting with countryside detritus on narrow twisty lanes, however we have been allowing some bigger bikes more recently with permission of course
