At last there was a short break in the much needed

rain for the motorcyclists of the ASB to get a day out

on their bikes.

John Heffernan organised a lovely ride from

Boliqueime over the hills above Salir to Almodovar in the

lower Alentejo. It was a bright but somewhat chilly day

and a break was taken in Ameixial on the way for a warming

coffee. After passing through Almodovar the riders returned

south via Sao Marcos where lunch was taken at Restaurante

Cruzamento before going their separate ways home.

John would like to thank Steve Wills and Stan Green for

their help with organisation on the day.

All members would like to send good wishes to ASB regular

Joachim Heinsen who is in hospital in Germany and hope

to see him back on his famous blue VW trike very soon.
