There were over 30 bikes at the Amity
for the ride to Cheynes. Just under half
of these were older British, Japanese, European and American bikes.
The big ends started to rattle on my BSA, so I had to return to the
shed and grabbing another bike. I was able to rejoin the gang at Upper
Kalgan where the shorter ride were stopping for smoko after a spin
around Marine Drive, Lower King and Hunton Road.
Another group of our riders headed through Kamballup and South
Stirlings for a longer ride.
I was now on the AJS and keeping Matt company on his Ajay we headed off
Just after Manypeaks the quicker mob had rejoined us - good timing!
By the time we arrived at the beach
everyone was settling in on the
grassy area which is well shaded and right on the beach. The waves were
right up to the edge of the grass, no sand. I’d never seen Cheynes
Beach like this before in February. It’s a great spot for a picnic and
nobody was in a rush to leave.
Lez and Marie Baines went back-up bringing their trailer in from Denmark, much appreciated, and it was to remain unchristened. Great weather and company.Back to Index Page
