A Message From The Secretary

 Hello All.

While we  wait for the Rideout Programme to begin again, and indeed, after it has  finished, it has been suggested that club members can meet at the Yarm Town Hall at 10 o'clock on the first Sunday of the month and mosey-on  down to Osbourne’s for a chin-wag/gossip etc. (Osbourne’s is located in Yarm town centre approx 200mts from the Town Clock on the L/H side).

So, to keep up with the goings on why not pop down this Sunday and catch up with the latest news.

Regards.  Brian

Kirkby Stephen

Krusty’s Bike Barn

A new bike shop has recently opened in Kirkby Stephen, namely Krusty’s Bike Barn. Located on the main road through near to the traffic signals.  Specialising  in cruisers of all makes and types there is also a cafe/snack bar located within the shop. Opening times are 10:00am to 17:00pm 7 days a week so when in Kirkby Stephen why not call in even if just for a coffee and a chat. (Krusty does a decent cup of coffee for less than half the price of a Costa so that alone should be reason enough.

A really useful website discovered by Bob Arnett is which provides a general forum for all bikers but is also a very useful for site for information regarding the law and could be very useful if you are ever involved in an accident. In particular have a look at the section on “Filtering” and “Undertaking” or to give it it’s more appropriate name “Nearside Overtaking”.

The Buck Inn - Chop Gate - Biker Friendly

Below is the text of an Email recently received by the Club Secretary, Brian Burke, from the owners of the Buck Inn at Chop Gate. (Definately worth stopping for a coffee at least, rather than pay the parking charge at Helmsley).

My name is Wolfgang Barth. My wife Helen and I bought the Buck Inn here in Chop Gate ( TS9 7JL) Two years ago and have been renovating it ever since. Two of your members came to lunch yesterday and suggested to write to you. We are members of motogoloco  which is a biker friendly website and informs  you where to go and where to be able to stay throughout UK. Also the Yesteryears are meeting here every Sunday morning.                                                                                                                         Please have a look at our web site:  or go to   http://www.motogoloco Every Saturday afternoon we are having either Hog or  Spit roast , or just a BBQ. Our Sunday roasts are well known around here since we offer 6 different meats. I thought it might be a great idea to pay us a visit since we are ideally situated between Stokesley and Helmsley.

Best regards

Wolfgang, Helen and the team
