We was think what to do on the Bank Holliday weekend as there was no event in the sidecar calendar, but a very hastily arranged club by club members John and Tracy solved the problem and with a few e-mails and calls it was all systems go for us to camp on a site next to the Lincolnshire Aviation Museum at East Kirkby. Many thanks go to club members John and Tracy and here is Michael’s report on the event. First a big thank you to John & Tracy for arranging this Tri-Anglia Wheels Sidecar Club camp out, at such short notice for the May Day holiday at East Kirby. www.lincolnshirewolds.info
I arrived on the Friday in the COLD RAIN, it seems we going into our second winter! However a very warm welcome from J & T, even had a ELECTRICHEATER in our cozy “Wolds Sidecar Pow Wow Tent” for friday evening with a generous helping of fish/chips and mushy peas, plus a few tasters, just magic!
Saturday was another surprise the www.skellingthorpe-motorcycleclub.org.uk 5th Annual Aviation Heritage Wolds Run, quite gathering for this good cause at www.lincsaviation.co.uk Also had a chat with the Cossall people, now returned from NZ.
Mid afternoon l rode my Mystic/sidecar into Spilsby for forgotten items! and then a little detour and walk around the castle ruins at http://community.lincolnshire.gov.uk/BolingbrokeCastle with its long history.
What to do on the Sunday, why not a “Mini-Nurburgring” so 4 x outfits took a trip to www.cadwellpark.co.uk with the www.crmc.co.uk racing, also a ‘testing ground” for wind chill & hypothermia on the high Wolds, but being true Brits we STOOD OUR GROUND! Wandering around the paddock area l notice a few “Airheads” in the racing outfits www.moorespeed.co.uk which now give out 100bhp at the rear wheel!
Sunday evening was again a visit the Red Lion, this time for a Sunday roast/pudding & even Martyn seems to have his own “bar stool” near the bar for extra nibbles.
Bye for now. Michael.
