EVENTS   2018

Here are a few dates of events, a mix of Bike car and interesting stuff I already know for 2018 in the South East and a bit further afield.

Please keep sending me details of any new events, regular meets and I shall add them in to my or monthly line up or summer time weekly “what’s on Wednesday” when the season gets busier.

Fliers for many of these events are in the folder 2018 Fliers on Facebook

As ever please check dates and events if travelling distances as they could change or I may be wrong.

Quite a few are on my “to do” list already.

Please do not forget the regular weekly and monthly meets mainly in the summer.
