lockdown -but the sun was shining!
on: November 22, 2020, 06:21:30 PM
after a delivery today-to a foggy Cornwall I arrived back in North Shropshire to bright sunshine-albeit cooler that the south west.I have to pass Lynn's Raven cafe and low and behold lots of bikers standing around, drinking tea etc .Not much "social distancing" .Now I can understand going for a ride -that's not exactly breating on others - but the bike stop gossip? Are we immune,uncaring or what?

I'm not a regular so I don't know why but it's not Lynn's anymore.

yes i did know that but for the sake of positioning described it thus..i only live 2 miles away but apart from a good meeting place most of the people who go there seem to be race leathers ,highly polished bikes and designer "bikers" -not gnarly old codgers who do big mileages!

Where has she moved to? I tried to use the address from the facebook page but obviously the google map pictures are dated.
Like I said, I'm not a regular but I will always support someone that has a genuine 'liking' for bikers and not just in it for the cash,
as it would seem at the old place.

I hadn't seen the 'pheonix' facebook page, only the old Raven one and although it directed me to the same place
 because the google pics were out of date I wasn't sure.

 :028: thanks.

well i am a local- not a regular -at the cafe but in the Spring I sold my Snoods - all profits to the NHS -from there and found the staff really nice and helpful - so can only "say as i found" . I learnt that they run the cafe as a family -3 generations -and also own the Raven pub.
its a great meeting place and found that a lot of riders come up or down from Liverpool or Wolverhampton for a ride out.
