2nd North Wales Rally @ Station Campsite
Jun 5 – Jun 7 all-day

Thank you for wanting to join the North Wales branch of the TR3OC at our 2nd North Wales Rally on June 5/6/7. We are planning to spend a weekend in beautiful countryside enjoying great company, great bikes and great food and drink.
Once settled in on Friday we plan to have a quietish night at the local pub catching up with old friends or making new ones. On Saturday, for those who wish to participate, there will be a ride out starting at 12.00 of roughly 90 miles through the beautiful Welsh countryside riding through both mountains, moor and seaside, stopping off for refreshments along the way. If you don’t fancy a ride out there are beautiful walks locally or why not take the steam train from the station adjacent to the campsite to Llangollen for some sight-seeing.
Saturday evening will involve retiring to the local pub once more where we will enjoy a BBQ, musical entertainment, talking bo**ocks and even a dance or two.
You will need to pre-book your pitch with the campsite mentioning TR3OC upon which you will receive a reduced rate of £10 per pitch (Tent, Motorhome/camper) per night (without electric) or £20 per pitch per night (with electric hook-up) There are also camping pods available at £30 per night. These are basic, no beds, but can accommodate 2 double airbeds so sleep 4 people.
We will then ask for a contribution of £10 per person towards the BBQ and entertainment.
Sunday is pack up and make your way home once more enjoying some lovely riding country.
A cooked breakfast (£7.95) is available from the pub on both mornings.
Once you have booked with the campsite please drop me an email confirming your attendance so I can keep a tab on numbers and please also include whether you require breakfasts from the pub and any dietary requirements for the BBQ.

See you all in June!

Scottish Borders Weekend @ Glentress Hotel
Jun 19 – Jun 21 all-day

As advertised in the recent Triple Echo, the TWATS (Tyne, Wear and Tees Section) and the NOBS (North Of the Border Section) jointly invite you to the 4th Scottish Borders Weekend.

Based at the Glentress Hotel outside Peebles, we’ll be enjoying rides through the glorious scenery of the Borders on the longest days of the year, on quiet roads with their sweeping bends that are so suited to our triples.

The Glentress Hotel has been sold since our last visit and the building partially refurbished. Accommodation rates have increased but a discount has been negotiated. Please book rooms directly with the hotel and confirm TR3OC when booking.

Depending on numbers they may offer a welcome drink or coffee/cake, etc, for the Friday and something similar (G&T/beer/glass of wine) for the Saturday. The bar is licenced until midnight.

There are limited rooms available but should numbers exceed availability, or anyone simply prefer to make their own arrangements, other accommodation is available in the area, either B&Bs in Peebles or the much closer lodges.

Friday evening we’ll be riding the bikes to Biggar for a chippy tea in a fish and chip shop restaurant before returning to the hotel for a wee swally. Saturday’s ride out will be to places of interest in the Borders, with no admission charges. Lunch at a café on the way.

Anyone is welcome to join us for any part of the weekend if they cannot manage the whole event, but whether you’re attending the whole weekend or just a part, please confirm to me so I can negotiate complimentary drinks and we don’t miss anyone joining us for the ride out only. This also applies to anyone choosing alternative accommodation, especially if they want to join us for the meal.

The TWATS and the NOBS look forward to welcoming you to this annual TR3OC event.

Llangollen International Motorcycle Festival @ Royal International Pavilion
Aug 1 – Aug 2 all-day


Royal International Pavilion, Abbey Road, Llangollen LL20 8SW


LlanBikeFest is run by a group of North Wales enthusiasts who are mad about bikes of all kinds – on road, off road, racing, touring, classics and custom. If they have two wheels (or three at a pinch), we love ‘em. That’s why LlanBikeFest is an ‘International Festival of Motorcycling’. A celebration of biking – not just a show.

The TR3OC will have a club stand, so come and see us at this excellent event.

GTR 14 – German Triple Run
Aug 7 – Aug 9 all-day

A meeting for riders and friends of the old BSA and TRIUMPH Triples. That was the idea of the GERMAN TRIPLE RUN.

Two mates, Ralph and Martin had the idea and were crazy enough, to host the first meeting in their private homes with the help of their families and friends in 2007.

Without any idea how it ends, they planned two meetings. The first in Borgholzhausen, the second one year later in Weertzen. Surprised from the success – at first attempt there were 16 of these fantastic bikes on the ground – it was clear that this meeting became a regular feature. In the meantime there is a third organizer joining thr GTR family – Francis.

From year to year more guests arrives, many of them from other European countries. Over the years we had guests from Netherlands, Finland, United Kingdom, France, Belgium, Denmark, Austria and Switzerland. The visitors record was 33 competitors on bikes plus partners and friends.

The main attraction naturally is the ride on bikes together on Saturday. When do you have the opportunity to ride out with 30 other roaring British triples in a row? This picture and sound – unforgettable!

Never been here? Have we awakened your interest?

We are looking forward to you!
