July '21 Round Up
Glorious Mid-Summer. The country getting back to some more normailty.
E-YARD (RoSPA Advanced Drivers and Riders East Yorkshire) had a great month, starting off with Mike and Paul representing the club at Humberside Police BikeSafe workshop.
E-YARD' contribution was appreciated by the BikeSafe team with Howard Fordham from the BikeSafe commenting "Please pass on my thanks to Mike and Paul for their efforts (yesterday), It was a good day and all the candidates seemed to enjoy their day with us"
The month saw TNT on the first day on the month! 11 Bikes and a dozen members head off to Thompson chippy near York.
The first weekend supported the first Coddiwomple of the month with a small group enjoying the usual Ice Cream treat, this time south of the river in Lincolnshire
As the group continues to grow, we are recruiting more Tutors, which means we need more Advanced Tutors to guide and mentor. Pippa has agreed to undergo the process, but it seems she is being trained by a small alien relation of 'The Stig'...
The next TNT was to Scarbados which was a bit of a novice group - newish members being introduced to one of Hoodies goat track back road bimbles!
On the subject of new members, July welcomed Rob Caton, Graham Holgate, Charlie "De la Moto" and Lee Evans joining our ranks.
Paul Morton was out at every chance tutoring, with Dave R and Charlie, as was Guy with Big Al
At the close of the month Pete Whitehurst acheived his pass as aRoSPA advanced rider
Andy Brittan qualified as an Approved Group Tutor along with Dave Scott taking the total tally of bike tutors to 12 for E-YARD.
22 July was yet another TNT with a great turnout, Helmesley being the chosen destination.
BMW Motorrad Marshalls held an open day on Sunday 25th July at which E-YARD were present with a small team to extol the value of Advanced Riding, RoSPA and E-YARD
Training officer and approved tutor, Julian Taylor took his tri-annual car test and maintianed his high grade.
As the month came to an end, the monthly group meeting at Beverley Golf club was received by 18 members who enjoyed a presentation on Limit Point Analysis.
Quite a full month, bit like the 'old days' !!
