Area 22 - Summer Drive

Area22 Rep | Published on 8/19/2022

On a very overcast morning 20 members and friends met up at the Classic Motor Hub, Bibury for the start of the Summer Drive. After coffee and a walk round the showroom, with hands firmly in pockets, we left on part one of the drive to the West Berkshire Brewery at Yattendon. The sun soon came out and we headed south through beautiful scenery which only England in the summer can provide. The brewery, sited on the estate of Baron Iliffe, provides an excellent venue with good food and a big car park! After lunch we were introduced to the benefits of owning an e-bike by John Clark of Velospeed, a local dealer and expert on the topic. We left for what we thought was going to be a relaxing drive to Tytherington .. not so as it turned out. As we approached Castle Coombe we were confronted with “Road Closed” signs across every road we attempted and, as usual, not a workman in sight! Eventually having traversed roads with “grass in the middle” we emerged at The Swan at Tytherington where we enjoyed a well earned drink. A good day all round we agreed.
