We held our second evening rideout of the year, on Monday 29th June, to visit our very good friends at Barnsley MAG. Ten Wakefield MAG members on nine bikes were joined by six Huddersfield MAG members on five bikes at Stork Lodge Tea Rooms. We set off at 8pm as planned, and took the A61 route to Barnsley, via Pugney’s Country Park. The weather was warm and dry and we made quite a sight riding into Barnsley (stopping only for traffic lights and passport control !!!). We went straight through the town centre, not really knowing where we were going (only ever been to Barnsley MAG meetings via the M1), and despite hitting the one-way system, didn’t actually get lost and arrived well ahead of schedule, at 8:40.
Cheryl, the genial host of the Longcar Inn, Barnsley MAG’s meeting venue, opened up the beer garden for us to park in.
A most impressive turnout at the meeting, and Barnsley Bob had arranged a buffet for us all. Nice one Bob !!!
Wakefield members were most successful in the wine raffle, walking away with both bottles.
A good chinwag with everyone, then we all headed home around 10pm, back on the A61. A most pleasant evening rideout was had by all. Great to welcome along Huddersfield MAG on the rideout too, thanks for coming guys.
Our next evening rideout is to visit Leeds MAG, on Tuesday 21st July.
