Despite being very much considered the off season, the Club still has much going on. The annual trip to the ExCel Bike show at the ExCel exhibition centre will be on the 14th February. If you’re interested, find the thread on the Forum and post your details. It’ll costs you £10, payable in cash on the day, which will cover you for transport to/from Odiham/Farnborough and your entry ticket. Good value and a great day out. If you can’t make that date, or prefer to make your own way, as long as you present your receipt to the Treasurer by the end of February, you’ll get a rebate on the costs.
The Club’s annual 2-day track day will be at Rockingham Motor Speedway on the 16th-17th June. It’ll be arranged as per our normal Airfield Riding days (3 groups), on the International circuit. There are threads on the Forum for it, with information and links to circuit videos. The event will cost you £145 for the 2 days, which may also include camping and food at the circuit on the night of the 16th. Booking is open for the event, so don’t miss out. Payment is via the Membership subs/events payment site (accessible above via the ‘Members Sign-In’). There’s further information on the event via the ‘Events’ link.
Nearly finally, the 2014 No-Budget Cup season is looming, with the first round at Zolder, Belguim on the 30th March. There are 5 rounds during the year, the dates of which are on the Calendar. If you’ve never done any racing, it’s worth considering, as it may give you a taste for it, without shelling out loads of your own money trying it. If you are interested, you’ll need to check the relevant thread on the Forum and undertake an assessment by a Club Instructor, to ensure that you won’t be a ‘fish out of water’ during the racing.
And finally, whilst road riders will probably look out of the window at the moment at the road/weather conditions with scorn, the Offroad events continue. Worth trying if you’ve never been off road, with hire bikes and equipment available. Payment and booking is via the Membership subs/events payment site (accessible above via the ‘Members Sign-In’). The Instructors will be trying a new site at Bagshot out in March, so the normal monthly event is suspended, but the new site will be in use from May, alternating with Slab Common.
