Ride In at GCR Rothley Station; 25th April

Ride In to Rothley Station on the Great Central Railway, Leicestershire.

If all goes to plan Lockdown will be easing and we will effectively be in the old Tier 2 restrictions, ie. max 6 in a group and outside catering only. No limit on travel.

Of course, this may change so WATCH THIS SPACE!

Rothley Station has a cafe with an extensive outside area.
Trains on this preserved steam railway will be running (again, subject to the Boris Plan) so a journey along the line can be undertaken - plan your timing accordingly!

Max group size of 6
Social distancing rules apply

see
gcrailway.co.uk/station-facilities/rothley/

gcrailway.co.uk/station-facilities/ellis...othley/

for more details

As usual, see who's attending and then use the post in the forum to arrange for a group ride from your area

Hmm - there's more than a good chance I'll be doing this one.
Steam trains and cafés - what's not to like ?

If everything opens up there are some good eating places and pubs locally and also one of the best chippies in the country in the village, Bradgate park is just minutes away and The Vic bikers pub just a short ride away.

If Gary brings his Beezer you'll be able to stand in the car park and compare bits that have fallen off! 🤣

They only fall off 'cos they were never fitted correctly from the factory . . . honest . . . .it's not a case of me forgetting to tighten the bolts. Besides, if it still runs with the bits missing, were they really needed in the first place ?

If Nick sends the Beezers in front there'll be no need to navigate... just follow the trail🤣

And when they run out the harleys can take over, should be a good supply of nuts and bolts and bits for the scrapman.

might come to this, depends on what the weather is doing, bit of trip from stevanage if the other half is ok.
might come on the Ariel or the BSA, or maybe just use one of the Guzzi's
