The Seaside run always has a good showing and seems as it’s on our door step it would be rude not to. As usual we left from The Station Inn and was soon greeted by a heavy rain shower enroute to Penarth. The carpark is normally a show in itself but we had to hide from the rain until the off. On this run you have to play by the VMCC rules so bikes older than 25 years however every year some of the VMCC members normally bring a few modern bikes due to breakdowns and such but we always abide by the spirit of the ride.
This year due to an event in Barry we knew we were skipping that this year but it lead to a number of people going the wrong way. Thankfully once we got out of Penarth the rain ended for the majority of the day. There is definately something fun about riding the country lanes in covoy on the old bikes. Nash Point is always a cracking place to be but once again we were blessed with the sun being out.
The best bit of the run tho is the sunday lunch but after a quick look at the weather we knew we were chancing our luck and a dark cloud looming above we made a break for the motorway home and not go back to Penarth like normal. We didnt get wet again and still had a cracking morning. If you missed it this year line it up in your plans next year it never dissapoints and always a good run to shakedown recent projects.
