Keen, soon-to-be-available female passenger!

Unread post by Elizabeth » Wed Jun 19, 2019 6:53 pm

Hi, I’m Liz,

I’ve got my CTC booked at Brands on 29th August and then will have membership with Bemsee.

I’m 32, 5’8” and weigh around nine stone. I’m based on the south east coast in East Sussex but am willing to travel and happy to contribute towards costs.

I’m a biker, so have all the kit and six years’ experience riding. I currently own two bikes: a Fazer 600 and a GSX-R1000, so I’m not adverse to speed :lol: All I need now is my race licence and then I’m good to go!

Other than that, I’m a regular TT goer (spectator only, so far...), and am hoping to get to Cadwell this weekend for the sidecar revival.

If anyone is in need of a passenger in the later half of the year and into 2020, then please get in touch! Am desperate to have a go!

PS. Can anyone tell me how to go about getting a taxi ride booked?

Hi Liz and welcome !
It seems that for the Cadwell revival taxi rides , they needed to be booked in advance , and are now full , according to the Bemsee site ..

https://www.bemsee.net/info-centre/news ... dwell-park

In previous seasons , the Donington CRMC August meeting has had taxi rides , and last year the Brands October Bemsee meeting also had taxi rides , so worth looking out for those.

Good luck !
Somebody has just unloaded a ton of Play-Doh on my driveway! I don't know what to make of it !

Many thanks, Ronno! Is it necessary to have a licence for a taxi ride? I’m booked to do my CTC on 29th August, not sure if I’m being a bit premature about this...

No, you don't need a licence for a taxi ride.

Bemsee might offer taxi rides again at their Brands October meeting - keep an eye on here and ask at Cadwell this weekend if you're going.

That would be great, Allison, thank you - that’s very kind and good to know - I’ll keep an eye open for you at the meet in October. I’ve emailed Bemsee asking if there will be any taxi rides at Brands coming up soon - am hoping to get booked onto one of those ASAP. In the meantime, if you know of anything coming up that I should go to, please let me know!

Hi Elizabeth.

How have you progressed so far?

Are you determined to ride Bemsee only, or does a front exit classic sidecar hold any interest for you? (CRMC, BHR, Belgium etc...)

Hi, sorry for late reply, I got the CTC back in August but unfortunately haven’t managed to get even a taxi ride yet... Still very keen to get going and am hoping 2020 brings something good.

I don’t have a preference to ride only Bemsee - am quite happy to ride with any club, anything from classics to F1. Am just keen to get some experience at this point.

Hi there Jim,

Thanks for the message. I got the CTC back in August but unfortunately it’s been pretty quiet since then. I went to a Bemsee meet at Brands in October but they weren’t doing taxi rides. So no experience as yet but still very keen to get going and am hoping 2020 will bring something good. I will have my licence as of the 1st of January.

Hi Elizabeth

Thank you for your reply. Really sorry but I now have secured passenger for 2020, ad a lady in Belgium for my overseas adventures!

I do hope you will progress next year with a permanent ride - Lord knows there are many of us who seek co-pilots!
