Biker Ranch, Simmerath
on: April 20, 2013, 05:12:54 PM
Managed a quick trip to the Biker Ranch today with my son. Lovely weather, lots of sun, but still cold when you start getting into the hills. Still, the Biker Burger warmed us up for our next call at the Polo HQ in J├╝chen, before heading on home.



This is where we are meeting on the 19th May for our little CT tour. I hope a few CTs can make it.

I'm in Winterspelt on my CT on 3/4 May. What a shame it's not a couple of weeks later.

Made a nice route for our tour together...

Meet at Biker Ranch at 10, have breakfast and leave at 11
5 hours for 253km - relaxed ride with stops
Back at the biker Ranch for 4, have tea and leave around 5.

Looking forward to seeing you all.

Pity you can't make it. :003:

On the 3/4/5 May I'm on a tour in the Sauerland with 13 workmates.  :305:

Maybe we could try and get another Eiffel gathering in July or something. There are another couple of CT owners in Kent who might be interested in forming a raiding party :016:

Sounds good. I think it's best if the UK 'raiding party' choose the date - and we'll be waiting  :031:

 :008: Doc, we (In Ireland) were not waiting when the Vikings raided in 795 AD.
We were busy making Poitin

I actually think of myself as the 'forward recon party', and I'm going to test the local ale to make sure it's drinkable for when the raiders get here. I'll let them make it for me.

Incidentally, the first commercial brewery was established by the Bavarians in Munich in 800AD - but since the 'purity law' of 1516, the beer is only made with barley, hops, yeast and water - doesn't sound as good as it tastes.
