Autumn Mists Run 2018

The run organised and led by Richard Ballard was to the Vale of Belvoir via the Leicestershire Wolds.   The mix of machines dated from the early 50's up to present day.  We set off from Conkers at a nice pace using the 2nd man drop off system, someone said that there were 22 riders. (I hadn't counted.) 
The route was very pleasant through rural Leicestershire with some nice twisty bits before arriving at the engine yard, a group of buildings originally used by trades for producing doors windows and furniture for the castle.  These buildings have now been renovated to sell refreshments and craft items to visitors. Allegedly the name Belvoir came from Norman French meaning beautiful view and what a view.  Someone said the run back was even better and I wouldn't argue with that, must get some heated grips for next year.  I am sure all the company will agree with me that Richard organised a first class event, thank you.

A few photos below that John Earp took.  These were taken at "The Engine House", a garden centre/retail/eating place next to Belvoir castle which was the half way point.  There are others in Belvoir castle car park before we started home and finally a few back at Conkers at the end.
