I ve done the recce for the proposed ride out to Raven cafe on Sunday 24th September and found that they are hosting a Streetfighter bike event and after speaking to them they are expecting upto a thousand bikes. This would mean difficulties with parking, toilet facilities and most importantly getting served. As a result I have reluctantly postponed the ride until the following Sunday 1st October.
I plan to ride the usual route down the A49 and then have a nice weave through to Wem and Shropshire before skirting around Wrexham to finish at J & S motorcycle store at Delamere.
See you on Sunday 1st October – more details to follow
The departure point is the Barley Farm Inn on Stadium Way, Eccles, close to Barton Aerodrome. If approaching from the M60 direction, follow Liverpool Road (A57) towards Irlam and at the temporary traffic lights, at the start of the major road works, turn left into Stadium Way and Barley Farm is on the right. If approaching from the Irlam direction there is no right turn into Stadium Way. The posted diversion is to the M60 roundabout then back on the A57 towards Irlam and left into Stadium Way as above.
Barley Farm is open from 8am on Saturdays serving a help yourself buffet style breakfast with bottomless tea/coffee and toast. A small breakfast is £3.99 and a large breakfast is £5.99 for a once only trip to the counter. They have been advised that there may be up to 28 people dining. If you are having a breakfast please be there in sufficient time to eat it before the briefing and departure times.
Briefing will be at 0950 hrs and departure at 1000 hrs prompt.
Full tank of fuel please and if possible, bring some decent weather.
