Meet at the the Flag & Whistle Cafe, next to the Gloucestershire Warwickshire Steam Railway station in Toddington. The post code is GL54 5DT. Please try to arrive by 10:30 am so you’re in time for the briefing (and a cuppa).
Leaving at 11:00 the ride will follow a 40-mile route through the North Cotswolds to the Watsonian sidecar factory in Blockley (post code GL56 9RF).
On arrival at the factory showrooms there will be a charity BBQ and raffle (first prize is a pair of tickets to the final round of British Superbikes at Brands Hatch).
The Mike Ellis Memorial run is held annually in memory of our workshop manager, who died in April 2012, when he was involved in an accident involving a reversing lorry.
The ride is FREE to join – a suggested donation of £3 per bike would be gratefully received – and all money raised on the day is donated to the Mike Ellis Memorial Fund, providing life-saving equipment in rural communities.
Register here to join us on Sunday the 4th September for this year’s run.
Come to see the latest range of Watsonian Sidecars at Motorcycle Live 2016.
Watsonian have been making great British sidecars in the Heart of England since 1912 and will be exhibiting a range of new and current models at Motorcycle Live.
From lightweight single seaters, like the GP Manx and Meteor, to the wide-bodied GP700, which is capable of carrying an adult + child or two children, Watsonian produce sidecars that are suitable for motorcycles and scooters, large and small.
Fitting kits are available for a huge variety of modern and classic machines, including the latest Triumph Street Twin & Bonneville T120, Vespa GTS300 and BMW R nineT.
All sidecars are hand-built in Watsonian’s factory in the Cotswolds, with durable and easy to maintain glass fibre bodies, steel frames and independent suspension.
If you’re new to the world of three-wheels, Watsonian can provide instruction for novices at their factory showrooms.
Details of new models to be shown will be announced here on the Watsonian website.
