August is usually one of the hottest months of the year in the Algarve and so members of the Algarve Senior Bikers do not have their regular monthly ride out. Instead it has become a tradition to have a social lunch at the Faro Moto Club headquarters.

Mike Sanders did his usual efficient job of arranging the lunch and members were treated to the the kind hospitality of the club

restaurant and bar staff.

Lunch was choice fish or pork followed by a traditional Portuguese dessert which was enjoyed on the shaded outside terrace.

Looking forward to September there will be the World Superbike racing at the autodromo  which will be followed by a usual monthly ride and lunch at a date to be confirmed. Later in the month a 3 day tour to the north west of Portugal.

Details of these events can be found on the website.
