The “NAVCC” rally was held this year at “Ramsey Rural Museum” in Cambridgeshire at the end of August which was a very pleasant weekend. On the main ride on Sunday, we assisted with marshalling. It was good to meet up with friends from the various affiliated clubs. The 2019 IVCA International Rally is to be in Yorkshire.
The annual Rally of the club “Bygone Bykes” was held at a new venue in Fenwick over the middle weekend of July with good weather and an excellent turnout.
June again and time for the re-vamped rally, this year we were volunteers helping out, some day were very hot but the weekend and much more pleasant. They are always looking for more support and we recommend joining “Friends of York Rally”
Had a visit to the North West of Scotland where we noticed quite a few doing the “North Coast 500”. Spoke to a few of the locals and learned that it was extremely popular, both with the participants and the local people who saw a big increase in the tourist trade. It is not only cycling, but very popular with motor cycling and motor home users.
This seems to be very worth while subject “Trails for Wales”. We have visited Wales many times and enjoyed the cycling routes there. Most recent was the Dolgellau to Barmouth area.
We have brought back a gallery of photographs taken during our travels to the Normandy Beaches in France and another of our visit to the International Tandem Rally at Gennes, France. They are available on the Photographs-France page.
We are also preparing a gallery of some of our touring in Jersey, which should be here soon.
We are also preparing a gallery of some of our touring in Scotland, England and Wales. We have added a few from Scotland as a start in Photographs-Scotland and now added some from our first tour there.
We have just been to The York Rally and what a fantastic event it was. This is only the second year of the new Rally and as the first, it was a very good event. This was the weekend of June 18th-19th. There was a great turnout for the grass track racing, especially for the under 14’s, the first time I have seen so many youngsters in action.
It is back on again on the 24th-25th June 2017, all the details can be found on the link above. For anyone who likes these events, they can join The Friends of York Rally.
