Prior to attending club tonight Rod, Short Legs, Trevor and I met up at my place at 5pm for a leisurely back roads ride over to the annual Willington Classics meet held at the National Trust Willington Dovecote and Stables just outside Bedford. The event as always was very well organised and a good array of cakes and sandwiches were available in the old stable building with donations going towards the buildings upkeep Also attending from the club were Paul Ollett and Jess Smith with late arrival of Lawrence Howes just as we left for the Tuesday night Club Meet. Unsurprisingly on arrival Rod asked where the BBQ was as he hadn't eaten for ages ( well at least two hours), just then total stranger walked by with a great big bag of chips. It was suggested that Rod get on his knees and beg, pleading starvation and of course with tears in his eyes he was fed a few chips. A few minutes later after having cakes and tea etc., we noticed Rod sitting next to the same guy and yes you guessed it he quickly consumed the chaps left over chips....much to the annoyance of his brown Labrador who didn't get a look in, thank heavens Rod is maintaining his strict diet! The event itself had a wide range of Classic Cars and a smattering of motorcycles - more are always welcome - of particular interest to me was the Sunbeam Alpine with monkey type bike slung across the back on what appeared to be a very well made carrier, which despite the weight involved had no effect whatsoever on the way the car sat on the road. The pictures hopefully give an indication of this simple but interesting evening classic meet. Unfortunately our return route was rather longer than expected due to a major diversion just outside Bedford meaning we didn't arrive back at The Crown until twenty to nine but non the less a good summer evening ride out.
