  1. There is a pub in a village called Two Dales just north of the bikers Mecca of Matlock (packed every weekend with bikers) the pub is on Wheatley Road which is just off the B5057 Chesterfield Road. DE4. Its a cracking country pub with a field they own behind it ideal for a short camping weekend as its ten minutes at most away from Matlock. No showers though just an outside toilet/washroom. tel- 01629732260. Cheers Ray.
  2. This is the annual classic car and bike show held in the centre of Sheffield on The Moor, the public are told from noon until 4 or 5pm, but anyone wanting to display has to be there before this time arrive anytime from 10.30am to noon at the very latest, there is also the police display stall with loads of freebies as well as other stalls and several shops open including Greggs, lol. Weather is forecast dry and fine so see you there maybe?? Cheers Ray.
  3. Our annual free to enter motorcycle show is on monday the 10th of august starting at 6.30pm at the Civil Service Club, Green Lane, Ecclesfield,Sheffield S359WY. Several prizes are to be awarded which have been donated by SMC motorcycles of Sheffield, there will be hot food and drinks available, plus the very reasonably priced bar too, a professional DJ will be playing the music. We usually get around 200 bikes turn up, our best is 260 !!! Parking inside the venue is for motorcycles only, cars have to park in the plentiful surrounding areas. We do have collection points for the three disabled children homes we support in these trying times, namely Chancet Wood, Rygate and Rushey Meadows so if you can donate a pound or two it would be very much appreciated. Cheers all see you there, Ray.
  4. The show is north of Sheffield in the village of Harley and starts at 1pm, from Chapeltown travel north on the A6135, this road crosses the M1 motorway then look for the village of harley on the right after half a mile.There will be numerous Classic Cars and Motorcycles, plus a band and a marching band, a beer tent, a sandwich shop also selling tea/coffee and soft drinks, there is the usual burger and hot dog stall, along with other stalls selling items from children toys, bricabrac to motor spares. Its only a quid to get in and its well worth it just for the eagle and owl bird show alone. See you there hopefully. Cheers Ray.
  5. The A616 from Clowne to Neward is a cracking road for bikers, then when you cross the bridge into Newark there is a free car park on the left to solo motorcycles, moored alongside this car park is a bar/restaurant pub ship, great fun and very different, its a short walk into Newark where there are plenty of bars and old type shops to browse around, and a Wetherspoons bar too, as you get to the outskirts of Newark on the A616 there is a biker friendly cafe called The Forest Corner with plenty of seating and great grub. Cheers all, keep it rubber side down, Ray.
  6. It is the Panther motorcycle clubs meet at the above date in East Butterwick which is on the east bank of the Trent River and south west of Scunthorpe, held at the Dog and Duck pub from noon, all types of bikes and bikers are very welcome on the last sunday of each month.

    Fozzies Bikes

    Here are some of the bikes I have owned and played on up to now, my first bike was a 98cc Excelsior Consort that I got for nine pounds fifty pence, he wanted 12 pound fifty pence but it wouldn't start so I knocked him down 3 quid, shame but I don't have a photo of that bike.
  8. This is a charity meeting, free entry but please buy a raffle ticket or just chuck a quid in the box as all proceeds go to charity, the meeting is on the 19th october from 11am to 4pm at the Sycamore Inn which is on the A635 alongside Stamford Park, Stamford Square, OL66QX. Cheers Ray
  9. The Harley Gala will have loads of classic cars and motorcycles plus the sidecar club will be there too, there will be a beer tent and burger and sandwich bar, tea,coffee and soft drinks also on sale, a brass band and gymnastics plus other attractions will be there too, it is on the A6135 going north out of Sheffield. Going north out of Chapeltown on the A6135 after you pass over the M1 motorway take the third turn on the right towards Harley village then right again at the Horseshoe pub and park up, entry is only a pound and this goes to Harley village society and charities. It starts at 1pm.
  10. I have posted a pic under the heading "various pics" as I have not got the hang of adding photos on here as yet. It is a photo showing just the lower half of the display area, to be honest I don't have many show pics as I am usually marshalling.

  12. This is the BMPS free bike show, starting around 6.30pm until after 10pm, entry is free to all but if you could buy a raffle ticket or two the proceeds of which go towards disabled children's charities we support please. There are Classic and new bikes on show, the show is held on the Civil Service Club grounds on Green Lane, Ecclesfield, Sheffield S359WY, if you arrive from the Ecclesfield Common end of Green Lane you will see marshals on the right side of the road after the slight right hand bend, enter the grounds careful please and follow the marshals directions for your own safety and the safety of others, children will be around too. There are prizes given for several categories old and new, just make sure you register your bike if you wish to enter once again this is free ! Hoya and cold drinks alcoholic and otherwise are available as are sandwiches and burgers etc etc. There will be a professional DJ there too. We had over 200 bike attend last year come along and take a look and lets see if we can beat last years numbers. Unfortunately if you arrive by car you cannot get into the grounds as space is at a premium, there are several parking areas around the venue and if you arrive after 6.45 then local car parks will be available to use for free. See you there, cheers Ray.
  13. They have a full online site now search for "The Carding Shed Hepworth"
  14. Yes The Oil Can Cafe is well worth a trip too, its open every day except monday 10am to 4pm, its a cafe actually in between the exhibits you order your food and it is then cooked and brought to you by women dressed in 1950's style dresses, flared at the bottom and showing a bit of cleavage as they did then, very nice. They have a full menu from bacon butties to a full plate meal not bad priced either, there are a few classic bikes and cars plus loads of memorabilia and three little "shops" that sell old toys/clothes and tools. Next door is a garage that repairs and refurbishes old classic cars so you are allowed part way in to see what is being worked on at that time, the cafe is near Holmefirth at Hepworth village the postcode is HD91AF, the access roads are twisty so take your time and get there rubber side down. Cheers Ray.
