III Rivers UK Chapter
No. 9979

Ride Out Meeting Points

As the chapter gathers momentum and we pull out of COVID 19 restrictions and new members join us as a consequence of the opening of the Watford Harley Davidson dealership it was considered at a recent Road Captains meeting that we could all do with a refresher on our established ‘Ride Meeting Points’. Needless to say, other Ride Start Points may also be notified.

On notification of a ride out you will be informed of the start point of a ride by its colloquial name e.g. Baldock Services. The below gives more exacting information. Locations are chosen by the day’s Road Captain and are considered to be suitable for the day’s ride i.e. if we are going east it is likely that an eastern start point will be selected. Generally, start points are selected on the demographic of the current membership of the chapter.
Additional Meeting Points may develop as the location demographic of the chapter evolves with new members.
