    I’ve never been to Cleethorpes and when I first heard it was a rally venue I had a vision of another seaside shithole. Just goes to show what a prejudiced old git I am because now that I live in the place called Europe most of my new found french mates go to enormous lengths to ride there and do the things us european and ex european scooterists like to do. Definitely pencilling it in for next year as long as Scomadi export the 180 over here [hint, hint]

      I only went for the first time a couple of years ago, and despite being next to Grimsby, it is actually quite nice. Skegness on the other hand…

    Only miss one Cleethorpes rally in 20 years. Definitely one of the best!!! It has everything a traditional scooter rally must have … and a bit more! Suggestions for 2017: Back to the Pier for night do or Ticket only do in smaller venue in town centre. Please keep on the “no bands” policy.

      Unfortunately The Pier has turned into a high class tea dance type establishment so doubt we could go back.

        I know Iggy… the return of the Pier was more a dream than a proper suggestion! 😉

    Great rally as always, one of the best, a big thanks to all who sorted it. Suggestions for next year – free beer.

    Has the date for Cleethorpes 2017 been set yet?

    Cleethorpes is as you say one of the best rallies of the year well organised and credit to you all that put in all the hard work but can I suggest that you don’t clash it with the northern soul weekend in Whitby .

      The Cleethorpes date is dictated by other events in the town, namely the Armed Forces Weekend (and the date for Euro Lambretta/south west events) and the same goes for the soul weekend at Whitby. They have to work around other regular dates. In an ideal world there would be no clashes but it’s impossible to plan events without clashing with other scooter rallies, never mind trying to work around crossover events from the soul scene.
