50 Years of the Historic Welsh Dragon Rally
It separates the men from the boys—or so it's been said. We're talking about the legendary Dragon Rally, organised by the Conwy Motorcycle Club and held every year in North Wales, often under the most tortuous conditions.
Snow, ice, rain—and even glorious sunshine—won't keep true Dragoneers away. And the rougher it gets, the more they like it. But if you want to become part of it, you'd better book early because tickets sell out quickly. In fact, this year's reservations are c-l-o-s-e-d.
To mark what has become something of a motorcycling rite-of-passage, not to mention the 50th anniversary of the event, Carol Morgan has written a book to give you the inside track of what exactly goes on during those frost-laden nights on a Welsh mountain, with nothing but dozens of frigid souls desperately seeking body warmth, and 5000 Celtic sheep for company.
If you want amusing stories, you've got 'em. If you want photographs of old friends in the prime of their youth, you've got them too. If you want lashing of mud, chilblains, primus stoves, oily bikes, etc, etc, you've got all of that. And if you want to get a copy of the book it will cost you £11.99. But you'd better quick. It's a limited print run, so talk to Carol Morgan before you get much older.
