2021 – Freedom!

We’re all just about back to normality now at the end of July thanks to the end of the general lockdown, so plenty of rides taking place at various venues on various dates, see our Facebook page for latest info on that. The ONLY definites, however, are our Thursday nighters kicking off from the Asda car park at Benton, Newcastle. We gather near the Wheatsheaf Hotel.

Well, great news took its time arriving after Lockdown but eventually it did, and we got going again with initially groups of six for a few rides, as per Government Covid-19 rules. Then came even better news in March when training/coaching sessions were allowed for up to 15 bodies. Although NMBC/MAC wasn’t itself strictly covered, granting honorary membership of Northumbria CSC to everyone in the Club enabled at least the spirit of the new “law” to be followed and we’ve enjoyed a handful of splendid group outings. The latest of these became what I consider to be one of the best ever on 15th April when 14 of us ventured out around South East Northumberland taking in as much dusty stuff as I could fine while still finishing at our fairly regular 10pm cut-off.
