Welcome to Chelsea & Fulham H.O.G.

Next ride out:
Remembrance Ride 2019 - November 10

Doors open, Warr’s Harley-Davidson Kings Road, at 10:00hrs. Pre-ride briefing is at 10:30hrs prompt. GATES CLOSE AT 10:30hrs. C&F H.O.G. policy is no briefing - no ride, so please arrive on time, with a full tank, to avoid disappointment.

And now for something completely different!

This year we are not going to a graveyard or memorial but visiting the site of a V1 bombing in 1944 where over 70 US service personnel lost their lives.

Having made sure to commemorate the sacrifice of our Army (Ypres and Tyne Cot 2014), Air Force (Brookwood 2015) and Navy (Chatham Naval Memorial 2018), this year we turn our attention to our principal wartime ally, the United States of America. This is not inappropriate as we all proudly ride American motorcycles and relish the freedoms hard won in the past.

In the immediate aftermath of D-Day, V1 bombs started to fall on London. It was a guided but very inaccurate munition, so the places where the missiles landed was random and unpredictable. Stationed in London in dormitories at Sloane Court behind the Royal Hospital Chelsea were the officers and other ranks of the 130th Chemical Processing Company of the United States Army; their role was to deal with the threat of use by the enemy of poison gas and other chemical weapons, so in the event they (fortunately!) never had anything to do. Their day was filled with training and equipment checks, and each morning after breakfast in a nearby barracks they climbed onto lorries to be ferried to their work location. On the morning of Monday 3rd July 1944 all was normal until the soldiers were getting aboard their lorries when a V1 bomb landed in Sloane Court East at the junction with Turks Row causing devastation. And that’s where we’re going!

After the 2-minute silence at 11am we will take the short ride to Turks Row to lay a wreath. Then we mount up for a brisk ride into Surrey where I have arranged for lunch in the function room of a hospitable pub (which happens to be close to Ryka’s, so you can all find your way home with ease). Ride distance will be 25 to 40 miles depending on the weather on the day. Please wear clothing appropriate for November.

Remember to have a full petrol tank and to bring your HOG and Chapter membership cards. Remember, no brief no ride so be there by 10.30am as the gates will close... and arrive quietly so as not to disturb the tranquillity of the day.

See you on November 10th.

Your ride leader is C&F Road Captain - Michael Howers

H.O.G. UK Membership

Chelsea & Fulham Harley Owners Group Chapter is an open membership Group with no obligations, dues or responsibilities for the members. Any Harley-Davidson Motorcycle owner, with valid H.O.G. UK membership, can buy a Chelsea & Fulham H.O.G. patch and hey presto you’re a Chapter member. That’s always been our style and we plan to keep this laid-back, informal approach.

We do insist of course that you are a fully paid up member of H.O.G. When you attend our events bring your H.O.G. card with you because we’ll be asking for your membership number quite a lot, for example before a ride out or when enrolling on one of our trips.

H.O.G. membership comes with a myriad of benefits, not least the ability for you to enjoy the company of like minded Harley enthusiasts in an organised, safe and insured membership structure. For further details and to enrol, please use the online H.O.G. application.
