    In the early stages of planning a winter Camping weekend.

    Dates will be the 8th 9th and 10th November .

    In the past we have done 2 meeting's a year . One in Spring and one in the Winter. They have always been a well attended, and a great chance to meet new and old friend's , chat about past trips and what your plans are for the coming year.

    After spending the last month or so out riding with Craig looking for a new site we came across this site yesterday by mistake while taking a wrong turn.

    We have to say it has the best view of any site we have used in the past.


    Camping for the weekend will be cheap only a few pounds pppn. ( I will confirm the cost asap ) There is a full menu on site with enough seating for 50.

    A road ride out with a lunch stop and a Trail ride out will be planned. Or the day can be spent indoors with a hot rum.:thumbup1:

    If your interested please post here to give us a idea on number's


    More details will be posted ASAP.

    Thanks Dazzer.

    Hi JB. I'm sure we can find room for your Camp Van on the site

    Update.

    1..Road route ride out will take in some of the best Back roads in this area. It will be Ridden at a steady pace so no one gets left behind or feels the need to have to ride fast to keep up and miss out on seeing the stunning views. Plenty of photo stops and Tea drinking with a Long lunch stop.


    Trail riding ....

    We hope to have 2 groups. One will be a steady ride which will suit riders that just want to enjoy the area and ride some trails without it feeling like a Enduro .plenty of stops for photos and a long lunch stop.


    The other trail ride will be a longer day's ride covering a Vast area taking in all the open lanes in this area. Riders in this group need to have quite a lot of experience . It's not a race but riders will be expected to keep up . There wont be many stop's apart from lunch.

    The aim of the weekend is that everyone gets out on the rides ,and has a great time and all return safe for the evening get together.

    Great initiative, Dazzer! :thumb

    The place looks great and I haven't been to the Dales since you set off on your epic adventure.

    Shame that the meeting is planned for the only weekend in November I can't make... :cry

    Oh well, hope there'll be another in Spring.

    Have fun! :ricky

    A mate of mine is considering coming along, he'll know next week. He may be the 51st...

    Btw, will the 'relaxed' track be ridable on a transalp with street oriented rear tyre (Mefo super explorer)? No steep sections or such?:huh

    Update: my mate Symon is coming along too. Please add him to the list.

    Spoke with Dazzer today and he asked to pass on the following message (as he currently is internetless):

    Dazzer and Craig had hoped to return to the UK on the 7th of November in time for this event. However their ferry does not get them back into the UK til the 11th. Unfortunately this meeting is cancelled.

    Are you serious or is this a joke? We booked the ferry and all!

    If the meeting is cancelled, can at least the campsite location and the tracks be released?

    Yeez...
