The Boundary 500 Motorcycle Group held their Annual Motorcycle Santa Ride on Saturday 3rd December 2011. We have set a date for the presentation of the cheque to Zoe’s Baby Hospice and it will be at 12noon on Saturday 18th February 2012. The presentation will be held in the Pavilion at Kirkleatham Hall, Redcar.

Can as many people as possible attend. The cheque will be for many thousands of pounds and everyone that took part is to be congratulated on their efforts for raising so much money. The press and local dignitaries will be there.

The Stainton 500 Football Team are in the 1/4 final of the Dave Bodley Cup and play against the Whte Rose Football Team who play two Divisions above the Stainton 500. The match is being played at Hemlington Recreation Centre in Middlesbrough, kick off at 10.15 on Sunday 29th January 2012. It would be appreciated if anyone  can go along and show their support.

Some of you may recall that there is a thread

at, http://www.boundary500.co.uk/smf/index.php/topic,5793.0.html which concerns a cafe in Keswick that was trying to get5 palnning permission and would welcome Motorcyclists and some of the residents were objecting.

 

Carole and I popped across and met the staff, very friendly people. Planning permission was granted although just after that, the road past the cafe is now blocked off until April 2012 because of major road works going on. If you visit the cafe which is located on Crosthwaite Road come into that road from the North. (turn into Crosthwaite from the A66/A591)

 

Have posted here to show our support and hopefully in the not too distant future we can have a Group Ride over there.

The Boundary 500 Motorcycle Groups Rider Training programme is aimed at enhancing members riding skills. This was brought about in order to promote road safety and provide the members with riding skills and knowledge at a minimal financial cost.

 

The course consists of four modules;

 

Module 1:       Highway Code: Students are given a copy of the Highway Code and have to answer a number of questions. These are not multiple choices and require  writing the complete answer as per what is contained within the book.

Time required at least one hour.

                          Cost £1

Module 2:      Road Craft: Students obtain a copy of Motorcycle Roadcraft, the Police Riders Handbook. This book containing some 200 pages and covers all the  aspects concerning the theory side of riding a motorcycle and is deemed the                             motorcyclists bible. These are not multiple choices and require writing the  complete answer as per what is contained within book. Time required at least five hours.

                          Cost, None because Riders buy their own book.

 

Module 3:       Classroom: Students attend a four hour classroom scenario where they discuss the issues and application of what they have learnt from modules 1 & 2.

Cost £3

 

Module 4:       Practical Riding Assessment/Instruction. Students then attend on two separate days for an observed ride and instruction. The observed rides are  carried out by members of the Group and the Cleveland                   Institute  of Advanced Motorcycle Group. The rides last for a minimum of one hour.

                        Cost. A maximum of £10 per Ride. (petrol costs of Observer)

 

As you can see from the above there has been a lot of commitment from both members and outside agencies.

 

This programme is proving to be very successful and it is intended to make it available to the local community..

 

A certificate will be awarded to those riders who have successfully completed the course at the Boundary Group annual ‘Presentation Evening’ which is held in October.

 

Further details on the course can be found on the forum at;

An excellent event and at the same time raising much need funds for the Hospice.

Steady has informed us that the ride will now start from Sizzlers Cafe, which is located on the westbound carriageway of the A66 near to Sadberge. With those that have a good memory its the old Ivanhoe Garage. Mally says he wants to be on the road from 10.15am so if you are having breakfast get there early. Dont forget to fill up your bikes as well.

The annual Boundary 500 Motorcycle Santa Ride will take place on Saturday 8th December 2012 and as in previous dates we will have a reserve date should there be adverse weather. The reserve date is Saturday 15th December 2012.

Please make a note in your diaries. Many thanks to Paul Dee and the officers of Cleveland and Durham Police Motorcycle Sections for their continued support.

The Boundary New Year Party was held on Saturday 14th January 2012. In just over a week 54 people have already booked for next years New Year Party which will take placen on Saturday 12th January 2013. The details of who to contact can be found at;  http://www.boundary500.co.uk/smf/index.php/topic,6583.0.html

Due to the events popularity we have to limit numbers to 160 so that we can again use the ’round table’ floor plan which everyone enjoys. Also Piper Bob (and possibly his friends) will once again be there to ‘Pipe’ us to dinner.

Steady’s Ride

I shall be having a leisurely ride around some easterly parts of the NY Moors, checking locations for a new fund raiser ride idea later in the year. There will definitely be plenty of u-turns (becuse I’ll be using paper maps – no sat nav), stops for hot drinks and grub and a Fish & Chip lunch at Whitby. No idea how long it’ll be, but I plan to be back around 4pm latest.
If you care to join me, I shall be at McDonalds at Teesside Park at 10am (for first hot drink and grub), planning on setting off around 10.15am.
This will only be cancelled if…
A) It’s snowing B) I have any man flu type ailments C) I change my mind
Hopefully see you there

There may be a change of meeting place so please keep an eye on the thread on the forum at; http://www.boundary500.co.uk/smf/index.php/topic,6602.0.html
