Sidecarland

My Journey to “Another Place”

The first Friday in October and the Mystic solo rider heads to the North West of England and the West Midlands Sidecar Club Autumn Sidecar Gathering and the reason for this meeting being over 100 miles from it base was because Mike one of its members had move to this area of Southport. “The Gathering” was very small in numbers with Mike & grandson, John and Chairman Nick/, plus ME! l believe what put off people coming was it seems to be the HURRICANE (remnants of) season in the in the north west.

With all the RAIN in last few days the camp grounds getting a little STICKY! Saturday morning a bus ride to the centre Southport comes with its GRAND VICTORIAN PATINA/PIER and REGINA.

Yet ANOTHER PAIR of BOOTS to CLEAN! Saturday evening/night was another wet/windy affair with the packing of a soggy tent Sunday morning. My ride home took me via the A59 to Preston/Skipton & then the single track lane via Colne to Hebden Bridge.

The free range LOCALS like to WANDER!
