Kent, Sussex & SE London Section

We are loosely organised by me, Nick Devonport. I do my best but keeping a road run together is a bit like herding cats! I can be contacted on 07833 623630, by post at 28 Bridgeside, Deal, Kent, CT14 9SS or by email nick_devonport@hotmail.com.

We support local events run by the Dover Transport Museum and it’s thanks to one of our guys, Andrew Johns, that some of the mopeds in their collection are now in running order. We welcome new members and look forward to seeing friends old and new at our events.

Our calendar for 2020 is:

Nick’s Birthday Run – January 26

Dover Transport Museum, Willingdon Road, Whitfield, Dover, CT16 2JX.  Meet at the Museum at 1000 for a cup of tea and a quick look round before the road run at 1100.  Pub lunch and back to the Museum by 1500 as the volunteers have homes to go to.

Barham Vintage Weekend- June 20/21

Clipgate Farm, Denton, Canterbury, Kent, CT4 6NS. A static display of our machines, no road run. This is a charming low-key country fayre with all the usual attractions – classic bikes, cars, tractors, stationary engines and steamers. There will be a Real Ale bar for thirsty exhibitors and a burger van if the ale needs soaking up. Free entry and camping for exhibitors. Facilities, though, are basic and consist of water points, portable toilet blocks and cold water wash sinks. Please contact me for an entry form and return it to me with a SAE by the end of May latest so that I can submit a bulk entry.

Nick’s Summer Camp- July 18/19

Kingsdown International Camping Centre, The Avenue, Kingsdown near Deal, Kent, CT14 8DU. Call the site direct on 01304 373713 and tell them you’re with the Cyclemotor Club. You’ll need to book a late departure for the Sunday as we won’t be back before the normal chuck-out time. Road runs on Saturday and Sunday start at 1100.

 Headcorn Aerodrome Run – September 19/20

Our season closer at Headcorn Aerodrome, Shenley Road, Headcorn, Kent, TN27 9HX.  Basic but cheap camping, plenty of activity on this busy site: aircraft including Tiger Moths with intrepid wing walkers, parachutists, microlights and more!  Oh, and we’ve got a couple of road runs, too.  Saturday after lunch and Sunday 10.00 for 11.00 start.

Several of us also meet up with the East Kent Classic Motorcycle Club on a Wednesday evening for a coffee and a burger (not a word to Is please!) at the East Kent Railway.  The venue alternates between the Shepherdwell and Eythorne sites so contact me for the location.  Time: 1800 – 2000ish.  Come and say hello!
