The GA 2014 Holly Run

Well, the weather is closing in, the nights are getting dark and anyone with a single ounce of sense will be putting their bikes away for the winter and digging out the unfinished Airfix Spitfire from last year.

The issue here is of course the GA are not renown for their sense, and so we offer you this years’ Holly Run, by popular request we have been asked for another urban jolly and of course we are more than happy to oblige.

We are setting camp up in Media City, Salford a mere cock stride form the glittering lights of Manchester for an evenings entertainment. By now I am sure you are probably breathless with anticipation so a few details maybe of interest?

So, where are we rendezvousing?

For those of us popping along on the Friday a public house called the Dockyard real beer and decent pub food, if people will will be so good to offer notice we shall reserve a GA cordon for the evening. If however you are planning on popping along on the Saturday morning a rather nice cafe called Pokusevskis is open from 7.00 ante meridian for a spot of breakfast and coffee.

With this in mind, and we really must apologise for the un-civilised start it would be rather nice if everyone could be at the Blue Peter garden for a 9:30 start on the Saturday and 10:00 on the Sunday.

With regards to accommodation, it all seems to be getting rather busy in the area with the original suggestion of the Media City Holiday Inn now fully booked, a short walk away is the Holiday Inn Express and even further (about a mile away, but a pretty penny cheaper) the Victoria Warehouse Hotel.

We do not want to be the sort of chaps that try and teach you how to blow eggs, but the days are getting shorter and bike theft in the civilised North is a rare thing but lights and a lock would be a worthwhile accessory to bring along.

Finally, it would be rather helpful if you intend joining us on Friday or Saturday night to let us know so can ensure you do not end up sitting on the floor at any juncture over the weekend

Sounds tempting, but one Channel too far. Enjoy the ride.
