Martlet Run

2022 24th April Martlet Run

This was the first post Covid new normality SBMOC charity fund raising event.  For obvious reasons numbers attending have not yet returned to previous numbers as is also the situation for most national events, but nonetheless we were pleased to see a good turn out by 65 bikes doing either the 65 mile or 35 mile map courses.  One group missed a turn …although maintaining it was a fault in the map…. supposedly on the 35 miler and ended up doing 62 miles.   A nice thing to do on a wonderfully sunny Sunday day out in Sussex.     Thanks to the Committee members for doing and serving the freshly cooked bacon baps and refreshments on the day, MickG for the routes and maps and of course to our lovely ladies Ethel and Christine for registration and riders packs. 

Best old bike award went to Don Poulter for his 1962 Greeves Sports twin.  Best restored award went to Glen Williams for his immaculate 1914 New Hudson Delux  (yes, 1914, which he rode in on and completed the course!).  Best bike on the day went to Jack Ingle for his lovely 1953 Triumph Blackbird.
