Hartside Cafe burns down!!!
Yes, I saw this too, I think there is a fundraiser ride planned to help the owners out with staff wages and things not covered by their insurance.
I think the biking community will support them big time, and rightly so.
Hartside Café is an icon
A real shame I hope they get sorted out without too much removed link
Now that the 'Beast from the East' seems to be behind us (touches wood . . ) and given that there are a few ride out dates not yet accounted for, I wonder if perhaps we might consider a ride up to Hartside but perhaps with a fee (donation to help them set back up again) which we can deliver either when up there or by bank transfer/cheque? Would that be against any club or IAM rules?
We have looked at the issue of giving as a charity and there are restrictions, the treasurer has details. So if we went to Hartside I thinK we would have to give as individuals.
I'm up for it, nothing stopping us arranging an Ad-Hoc ride.
What dates have we got free?
