Scott vs Shackleton

I have just finished reading a new biography about Scott of the Antarctic. Having always been a Shackleton fan (and I’ve read a great deal about the Polar explorer and Scott’s ‘rival’) I can’t say I had too much interest in Scott. The book illustrated the big differences between the two – Scott being very […]

Le Mans 24 Hours 12-13 June 2022 – our 27th year!

Le Mans is much more than the greatest endurance race in the world. It has its own ambience and atmosphere and an electricity and excitement that you can almost touch. The bars and cafes in the village run throughout the night and the champagne bar has an inexhaustible supply of bubbly and every bottle nicely […]

What you WON’T get with WILDSIDE ……..’Terrible Customer Service’

I am sure we have all been ‘treated’ to awful customer service. The restaurant waiting staff that clearly don’t care your food is cold or undercooked; being ignored at the bar trying to get a drink as yet another person who arrived after you is served first; but compared to Mr Nolan Dolla from Las […]

Great Customer Service from Wildside

We like to feel that Wildside offers exceptional service to our customers. We appreciate the people that book with us for a Wildside trip have often spent a lot of money and are often taking part in an event or enjoying an experience that is ‘once in a lifetime’. We really do care and see […]

The Cannonball Bike Run 2022

What is the Cannonball Bike Run? A bike rally? A motorcycle tours? A lifetime adventures? It’s all of these and much, much more. It’s an event like no other and an experience that you will genuinely remember forever. Since 2005 The Cannonball Bike Run (CBR) has visited over 30 European countries delivering fantastic routes and […]

Rome By Classic Fiat Bambino

We took a group of 48 people to the ‘Eternal City’ Rome. Staying in the centre of the city, the group had a full-on 3 day adventure. A Vespa treasure hunt kicked the weekend off with everyone in the group riding as a pillion with their own ‘chauffeur’. The 3 hour route included the most […]

Push Bike

Another major discovery made recently was finding in the back of the lock up a couple of bicycles. I had bought these about 4 years ago – one for me and one for my girlfriend. However, after using them just a few times they were stored and forgotten. But…with the Summer weather and the fact […]

Drive A Classic (Part Two)

OK, so in part one I gave the positives for driving an older car – of course I have just had the 968 serviced so here is the other side of the coin. I really do know that driving something a little out of the ordinary and relatively rare and quite old means garage bills […]

Drive A Classic (Part One)

For a good many years I have always owned an old Porsche – nothing exotic just a string of 944s and 968s. In fact I am now on my eighth – a deep blue 1993 968. The pleasures of owning a (modern) ‘classic’ are hard to define. Even a run of the mill hatchback now […]

This kind of events for car is extremely expensive and often too fake/posh. But this one for bikes is extremely reasonable, even cheap I will say and it's a familly. The road books are the best I've ever had. I've just done 3 Cannonballs, and they were all different and all great. The organisers are far better than they look.
