The 2019 NACC National Rally – a superb weekend

The annual NACC National Rally took place over the weekend of July 5th-7th at Wolverhampton Rugby Club, this being the tenth year that Liz & Bob and their team of helpers from the South Staffordshire Section have hosted the National at the rugby clubhouse. It was a superb weekend; on Saturday a total of 39 riders were out on two runs, the long one for mopeds at 49 miles and a shorter run for cyclemotors of 24 miles. The weather then played a joker as the heavens opened and everybody got a soaking.

After an excellent dinner at the clubhouse on Saturday evening, Sunday thankfully dawned bright and sunny, with temperatures in the 20s. A shorter run of 18 miles for all types of bike to Halfpenny Green airfield was accomplished by most riders, though a few breakdowns had to be rescued. We got back to the rugby club in time for a bite of lunch before sadly departing our separate ways. The club has already been booked for next year, the weekend of Friday 3rd to Sunday 5th July 2020. Be there!

Riders assemble on a sunny Sunday morning, ready for the off.

All in all, another superb weekend’s riding, tinkering with bikes and chatting about bikes amongst friends, another great NACC National Rally – grateful thanks to S. Staffs for putting it all together. Read a full report in August’s issue of Buzzing.

A brief stop at Ludstone Hall to admire the house, built in 1606.
