Slow Riding Control Skills Course

A member of the EKAM Observer Corps recently suggested setting up a "register" of group rides to provide ideas to ride leaders of possible routes and destinations that would be available and contributed to by all members.  This has now been set up on HeadLight:, the club forum.

Suggestions for group rides can include local destinations or round-robin routes suitable for the monthly social Club Rideout right through to full-blown touring holidays in the UK or abroad covering a couple of weeks. In other words there are no limits apart from your imagination and desire to go somewhere different. You can simply provide a destination or a complete turn-by-turn route - whatever flips your switch.

When the register reaches a usable size any suggestion may be taken up by one of our regular bunch of ride leaders and properly organised and publicised here within the forum and on the website. A regular criticism of the Sunday Rideout has been a lack of publicity and pre-planning and the impression is often given that "had we known where you were going we would have come along", and it has often been the case that a Sunday Rideout destination has not been decided until 15 minutes before leaving Ashford! With the help of the membership we hope to change that and be able to plan ahead, possibly by several months. Planning for a protracted tour can take a year or more, but don't let that put you off.

So get posting.  You will need to register/login to HeadLight: to see the new sub-forum in "Rideouts and Other Events" in the "Club House" section.

What?  Not registered?

Use the HeadLight link in the top menu, click on "Login" at the top right-hand side and then click on the "Register" button.  New registrations will require confirmation and an automated email will be sent to the address given during the registration process, which should only take a few minutes.  Once registration is complete and authenticated you will have to wait until the Webmaster confirms that you are an EKAM member before gaining access to the non-public "Club House" section of the forum.

Some Suggestions Received

Battle of Britain Memorial

The National Memorial to the Few at Capel-le-Ferne, on the famous white cliffs between Dover and Folkestone, occupies a special place in the hearts and minds of all those who have visited this moving site.


Brooklands Museum

Brooklands - the world’s first purpose-built motor racing circuit, constructed at Weybridge, Surrey in 1907 - was more than a great sporting arena. Brooklands was the birthplace of British motorsport and aviation, home of Concorde and the site of many engineering and technological achievements throughout eight decades of the 20th century.


Dover Transport Museum

Dover Transport Museum has a fascinating collection of vintage transport and transport models of all types.  Very special are: one of the first American lorries supplied to the British Army in WW1, our beautifully restored Romany Caravan, an Aveling & Porter steam roller, a genuine charabanc and impressive ship models.


Sammy Miller Motorcycle Museum

The Sammy Miller Museum which many consider houses the finest collection of fully-restored motorcycles in Europe; many of them extremely rare.  Sammy Miller was awarded an MBE for Services to Motorcycle Heritage in the 2009 New Years Honours List.


Lamberhurst Vineyards

Lamberhurst Vineyard offers the chance to learn about fine English wines in a beautiful Wealden setting. Enjoy wholesome food at the fully licensed Bistro, sip coffee whilst seated on the south facing Mediterranean style terrace. Children can have fun at pets’ corner with the Pygmy Goats & Rabbits.
