Shropshire TT; Saturday 29th October 2016


This time trial for 50cc mopeds followed a course of 37.6 miles on B roads around Shropshire and Staffordshire. The aim was to ride 3 laps together with stops for refreshments and repairs at the end of each lap.


Thanks especially to Reg and Margaret Moule for providing support from their campervan at the Bradford Arms, the location of the start/finish; to Steve Smith for following us around on his KTM as a travelling marshall; and to Mike Strong for providing a collection service for stricken bikes with his car and trailer - in the event only one rider (myself) needed his services (twice - including a lift home, thanks Mike!).


In the end only one rider completed three laps (I might have made it two if I could have pedalled more!), and on the oldest moped too, well done Ian! All riders received a certificate for taking part in the ride.


Final results:

Three laps completed: Ian Harris - 1959 Kriedler Florette

Two laps completed: Robert Roalfe - 1977 Honda Camino; Shaun Higginbotham - 1970 BSA Easy Rider; John Burgess - 1986 Vespa; David Watson - 1970 Mobylette; Ken Hayes - 1976 Honda ST50Dax; Win Winston - 1986 Yamaha DT50;

One lap completed: Mark Powis - 1966 Mobylette; Nick Payne - 1970 Ariel 3
