Members – please be advised of the following event.
“For some years now the Oxford Branch of the Norton Owners Club has hosted a Café Racer Day in September – this year it is being held on Saturday September 16th 2017 at a new venue, The Red Lion pub in the middle of Cassington village (OX29 4DN). This venue is well known for its annual Bike Night to which literally thousands of bikes turn up in June. Cassington is just off the A40 Witney road, west of Oxford, east of Eynsham.
Café Racer Day officially starts at noon, and wraps up around 3 p.m with a short prize-presentation for Best Bike and Furthest Ridden café-racer. A very catholic view of what constitutes a café-racer is taken, broadly defining this as a bike with handlebars that end up below the top-yoke, but even that’s not rigidly adhered to if the rest of the bike conforms to what most view as café-racer style!!
There is no charge for entry or admission, but there will be a collection for the Thames Valley and Chilterns Air Ambulance Service or similar ‘bike-oriented’ charity. If you have a café racer your’d like to bring along, ridden or by van / trailer matters not, or if you’d just like an outing to view some lovely customised and highly individual bikes, just come along and enjoy. Come alone or with friends, bring the family, come by bike, car, pushbike, walk or use public transport, we’re easy!!
