Lincoln Show 2022

We were looking forward to the Lincoln show as we had tested some electric bikes at the previous show, (Shepton Mallett) and we had arranged to collect them at the Lincoln show. The bikes are British made by 'A.S. bikes from Coventry and they fold down and weigh just 23Kg with the battery and 20Kg without. We got them at a slightly discounted show price of £895 each.

Here is our pitch, home for the weekend!

Here are the new 'e-bikes'

Andy sent the drone up to have a look 'round...

We were both feeling a bit under the weather, so we tested ourselves and the first test was negative. The following day we tested positive, and Sue took to her bed. I donned my mask and went out carefully staying two metres away from people and taking the usual precautions. I went out to see 'Cilla black' and then 'The Moon dogs' on the first night who were both very good. The Moon dogs played 60's medleys. I also went to see 'The Stones' and 'The Blues brothers' and although they were all good, I was not feeling very well so I just sat and watched and couldn't muster the energy to 'join in'.

As Sue was still feeling a bit unwell Andy jumped on the shuttle bus to Lincoln to visit the cathedral.

On Sunday Sue was feeling better and so we got on the bikes and headed for Scampton village. The famous Red Arrows were based at Scampton airfield but are moving (have moved) to RAF Waddington and so we decided not to go to the visitor centre but instead we had a pint at 'The Dam busters Inn in Scampton village.

Here is the last Red Arrows Hawk leaving RAF Scampton on the 19th October on it's way to it's new base at RAF Waddington.

We parked our new bikes and Andy went in to get the drinks. A few minutes later a couple came out and unlocked their identical e-bikes. We got talking and apparently, they had bought them in 2015 and still had the original batteries! They were really pleased with them. It looked like an e-bike club rally :)

On Monday morning we packed up and headed back to our seasonal pitch at Hertford, but we stopped at Rutland water on the way back and spent a couple of hours walking and cycling.
