the West Yorkshire Branch.
One of the first ever Yorkshire Ride Outs 1961/62
The West Yorkshire branch was formed in
1974, we think there were bike rides and meetings
before this but that was a Yorkshire Branch (see photo of Early ride out)
the photo was taken in Goole
about 1961/62 we think. The first ever meeting of the West Yorkshire Branch
was at the
Railway pub at Calverley which makes us 40 in 2014 (and one of the oldest
branches) so watch the web site
for any thing we might be getting up to, when i first went they
used to meet in the Rainville Pub at Bramley, i think it was 1994, then
about 20 to 25 would turn up
and we had quizes and raffles for club funds.
When the couple who ran the club stopped we started to just meet for a
drink and a chat.
The West Yorkshire
Branch Organized the 2015 HOC National Rally at
Skipsea Sands and it went down very well with all enjoying the weekend.

runs and social events
