Description of run
Leaving the Boship (meet in the car park outside Starbucks, petrol available at the start) at 10:30 we will be using the closing rider system to do approximately 50-60 miles around the Sussex countryside before arriving at our house for the social part. I will outline the route on the day (which means I haven't thought about it yet....) but I will aim to stick mostly to A and B roads, trying to avoid the busier areas without using too many narrow twisty country lanes. The social part will consist of plenty of cakes, sandwiches and drinks for everyone - (many thanks to Julie). If the weather is fine, we'll be out in the garden otherwise, we'll be indoors (or in the workshop....) Please note - although this is called a Sortie AND Social, it is really a Sortie AND/OR Social so if you want to do just the run and then go home that's fine. You can opt to do both the ride and the social or if you want to skip the ride and just tuck into the eats and drinks, that's perfectly OK too - just go straight to the house at around 1.00 p.m. You are then free to head off home whenever you are ready. As with all East Sussex Section runs and events, members from other sections are very welcome to join us. Please check the section website before travelling, if there are any changes they will be on there as soon as we know about them.
