    Hi,

    I'll be organising another weekend in August along the same lines as this event last year:

    http://advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=821087

    Date: Friday 23rd to Sunday 25th August
    Location: Wilcot, Wiltshire, UK

    The event is mainly aimed at getting foreign riders over to the UK for two days of trailriding. The lanes are suitable for large bikes if they have suitable tyres fitted i.e. TKC or similar as an absolute minimum. Salisbury Plain is just to the south, offering miles of trails. To the north are yet more trails offering a mix of flat and hilly ground, some slippery chalk slopes, plenty of ruts and probably mud as well.

    Apart from your own personal costs, the only other costs are as follows:

    Camping: £4.00 per person per night
    Breakfast: £4.00 per person per day
    Donation: £10.00 per person for the whole weekend, all of which goes to Wiltshire Air Ambulance Service.

    All I ask is that you eat in the pub on Friday and Saturday evenings, that there are no campfires or BBQ's, no race numbers on bikes and no stunt riding, especially on the campsite or in the village. There is a shower on site and a couple of electrical hookups for those requiring them (let me know in plenty of time so I can reserve plots for you).

    PM me if interested, spaces are limited and I already have a list of about 12 names.

    Cheers

    Steve

    Good evening,
    Are there any spaces left for the clog fest please ?

    I know a few riders from the French trip in May.
    It would be good to ride again....Very limited in Suffolk.

    Thanks, I've got the ride leaders I need but you're welcome to come along if you want - let me know.

    Admitting to knowing Philinfrance in public is not recommended. :D
