The Breakfast Run 15th June 2014.

This year the breakfast run had to be put back a week from the normal date due to the change of date for the Banbury Run, unlike the Banbury run the weather was overcast and rather cool, we had changed the venue for the breakfast and put the start time back from the usual 6.00 for 6.30am start to 6.30 for 7.00am start non the less we still had to get up at 5.00am as it takes us 45 minutes to get to the start and we have to be there to sign everyone on.Breakfast Run Start


Eleven bikes and riders turned out plus our 1934 BSA trike, we were missing a few regulars probably due to the changed date. The bikes ranged from three vintage, David Payne’s 1920 Triumph, Derek Morris’s 1928 Matchless and Frank Parker’s 1929 Panther to the 1981 Yamaha of Peter Mahony.


The run started from the lay-by on the A429 just off the M40 island and took the riders through Sherbourne to Wellesbourne on through Walton to the A422 and up Sunrising Hill. From there they headed over Edge Hill and on to Cropredy and Claydon, then skirting a few villages until they came to Napton, then on to Hunningham and finally Princethorpe finishing at the Three Horse Shoes Public House for breakfast where the riders were glad to get their hands on a hot cup of coffee to warm up some rather cold fingers after a total of 54 rather cool miles.Three Horse Shoes PH


Our thanks go to Fran Wiles for the route, Harry Wiles for the organisation, report and photos.
Special thanks go to our hosts at the three Horse Shoes, Ann and Geoff for a warm welcome and a superb breakfast.
