June Review


Flaming June commenced living up to it's name with lovely sunny weather for the monthly Breakfast Club ride out. Led by Rosie, the group headed off toward Thirsk for a cuppa and then on to Hawes for cheese at the Wensleydale Creamery - Cracking!

As usual, the run didn't go as expected with a collapsing road near Skipton drawing on Rosie - and her famous Sat-Navs - skills....still no water to talk of this time!

The start of the month also saw new member Mark Kelk acheive a Gold motorcycle grading.

Mark has done some of his training with our neighbouring group ARNY, as well as some lessons and pre test assessment with E-YARD.

Mark thanked those involved in his training and is planning to become a group tutor stating "I've been given that much support by everyone, I would love to become a tutor to give something back" A great sentiment Mark

E-YARD once again found some national exposure in the RoSPA Care on the Road magazine. The publication reported on the Advanced Taster Day in April

As the Summer Nights (cue song!) became established, our meeting place, East Coast Motorcycle World flourished as the the sun came out on their Bike Nights.

E-YARD welcomed new members Kerry Kerfoot (cars) and Ivan Smy (bikes) - pictured in addition to David Ward (car) and Rod McAndrew, Darryl Colville, Phil Ward and Dave Richards (bikes)

Humberside Police and Safer Roads Humber continued with their BikeSafe program with the third session of the season.

A full roster of clients wishing to 'Bridge the Gap' met at The Hall in Beverley and after their classroom input were placed with various advanced riders /including our very own Julian Taylor and Rosie for a two hour ride out and assessment.

A good day had by all!

Julian also got out with Ian Streets for a days worth of tutoring that took them all over the North Yorkshire area whilst Rosie was out with Paul Morton and Andy Brittan.

Newly qualified tutor Dave Hardwick got out with Carolyne and Mark (pre test)

Mid June saw Carolyne and Julia doing the 500 mile Iron Butt challenge for Royal British Legion, but not before Carolyne sought more fame in the MCN (Motorcycle News) with an article on her favourite route - Carolyne, you can lead the next Breakfast Club!
