Summer Ride-Outs – Between March and October

see schedule below

From March to October we have fortnightly Sunday ride outs for Associates and Full Members (Covid restrictions allowing)

With a 08:45am briefing and the ride starting at 9.00am the meeting point is the :

Farmer & Friends Cafe, Garden Village, Bridgnorth Rd, WV6 7EZ, click here for map.
These are valuable training runs and all Associates are encouraged to attend, plus it gives you the chance to meet other group members.

The format for Associates is around a 1 hour Observed session with either your own Observer or one of the other Group Observers, ending at a Café for a coffee and the debrief.
If the Observer feels your riding standard is up to it, you may be invited on the second half of the ride which continues to a lunch stop and then returns home.

The ride outs usually have you back at around 4.00pm.

What is what3words?

What3words is the easiest way to describe any precise location. It has divided the world into 3m squares and given each one a unique identifier made from three words.
what3words can be used via the free mobile app and the online map at There’s also an API that developers can use to integrate what3words into their own apps and platforms.

Some examples of how people use what3words are: telling friends exactly where to meet, easily entering a precise destination into a ride-hailing app, and giving their precise location over the phone to emergency services.

Businesses in travel, mobility and logistics, as well as some emergency response teams, use what3words to operate more efficiently and provide a better service

You can find handy step-by-step instructions on how to use the what3words app here:
