In June I didn't get there until 6.30 pm and it all petered out by 8pm so was a bit disappointed. Someone told me it usually started getting going by 4pm so...
July I went straight from work and got there at 5pm and was just about the first person there!! As it had been an iffy day weather wise I thought maybe no-one was coming but by 5.30 folks started to filter in and by 6.00 there were loads there. They just kept coming too and it was far busier than the previous month and it went on a bit later.
The forecast (not that you can believe THAT!!) is for a good day tomorrow so that should bring the crowd out, especially as this may be the last one of the year? (anybody know?).
If you haven't been before, the pub puts up a gazebo and serves trays of chicken curry / chilli con carne and rice etc for about £3-ish and there are burgers and various other snacks etc on the cricket ground.
It'd be great if we could fill the pub car park with Buells !! Ha ha! That's where the Harley lot usually park up too so it'd be like our own little showground!
I've got other people (bikes and cars) to collect en route so it might be 5.30/6-ish before my convoy gets there this time so see ya there. I'll be sure to stand around my bike at 7 and 7.30 so say hello!
SOMETHING TO BEAR IN MIND
you will be lucky to get ANY sort of phone signal at Ashby Folville, the best place to meet people is at the pubs car park entrance, so arrange a time with your crowd before hand....YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!!
