20th August run to Roman Villa Brading
Unfortunately due to an injury Paul as unable to lead this months Run, members Steve and Jan stepped in to lead the ride and Steve (Sausage) ran tail end Charlie and did a write up, many thanks to them both
Around ten bikes and a mix of 13 members joined in this month's gamble with the weather! August it may be, but autumn it felt and not being beach weather the roads seemed quite busy.
As Paul and Angie were unable to participate, Steve + Julie led this month's venture. Godshill`s gridlock traffic separated tail end Charlie from the group till front runners reached Blackwater. No worries. From then on, it was a good clear run to the Hare and Hounds and all the way across the down's high roads to Brading. Left at Bully's Hill and north to Carpenters, Bembridge Harbour, (a bit smelly as it was low tide!), windmill, airport, around Culver to finish at a busy Roman Villa. Just in time too! Having been overcast all the way, it was no surprise to feel a few droplets, but it held off with time for most to get home dry a bit later on. Thanks to Steve + Julie for taking the lead and for the well executed lay off, practiced by all in front of me. Thank you Roman Villa for having us again. Stay safe, Steve L, (tail end Charlie)
