HU Meeting Spain (Andalucia) 2008
Seriously looking into organising the first HU Meeting in Spain for 2008. Anybody interested in attending/presenting? We live 35km inland from Malaga in the Spanish mountains and have some of the best biking roads in Andalucia. Venue would depend on numbers. Let me know. Thanks.

Sounds good
Despite the heat, are you considering August? this would fit with annual holidays, allowing more to come.....

Best wishes

Caminante, no hay camino..........................

HU Meeting Spain (Andalucia) 2008
It's 40C plus here most days in Jul/Aug/Sept, but if 200 people say they'll come in August, who am I to argue?

Tim Cullis 19 Feb 2007 14:07

Love the idea and would be willing to present. But please not July/Aug.

HU Meeting Spain (Andalucia) 2008?
Thanks Caminando. I can but try!!! Btw, are you still chasing ghost riders in Morocco? My hubby works in Gib if you're passing through any time.

Poll posted - when do YOU think is the best time for a meeting in Spain?

I'll be there, and possibly Susan too if we can work it out.

If you're interested in presenting, please post here too. When we have a date and location we'll put up a meeting page.

Thanks, and hope to see you there!

Spain in September - What could be better?
Guys, I know the area very well.

September would be a great time for anybody travelling down from Northern Europe - weather for the trip down would be reasonable; weather whilst your there would be great!!! :thumbup1:

I divide my time between the Malaga region and Gibraltar (gateway to North Africa) and this area has something for everyone from nice mountain road ride (well over 1000m) to excellent trails. Plus some great historical places to see like the Alhambra - Granada (about an hour and half from the coast), Cordoba (about two hours), Ronda, Gibraltar and last but not least Tarifa – the most southerly point on mainland Europe.

So why not do the HUBB meet and have a wee holiday in the area while you’re at it. It’s a beautiful region, especially out of the normal holiday season - September would be great.

I’ll put my name down to lead out a local ride or two, or if necessary just give the attendees some ideas for rides.

My mother lives (and is from) Cordoba. It is HOT in Aug/July down there!

Best time in Andalucia is probably May or September.
I would consider coming if it's in Sept (2008). I should be back from South America by then and hopelly working to fund the next trip! :mchappy:

I would even be tempted to do a presentation (in english or spanish doesn't matter) but for now it is far too early as my trip has not even started!!

Now i like the sound of this one i was considering going that way to see a mate of mine who runs a bar in malaga so count me in :thumbup1: as long as its not in july or august :Beach:

Tim Cullis 2 Mar 2007 08:37

I lived in the area for a year in my youth (with my TriBSA 750), but never did get to see the Alhambra, Ronda, or the mosque at Cordoba. So I would be really interested in this meet.

Plus, I hope to start building a base in Morocco later this year, so I will be on the doorstep.


Danquart 2 Mar 2007 11:45

Great idea!
Count on me to be there. Does·nt matter which month! All twelve of them are lovely.
:stormy: or :Beach: = :funmeteryes:

Have posted my vote, but willing to travel whenever if I'm free from work.

Tim Cullis 4 Mar 2007 17:32


Of the 11 people who voted, there are just 18 actual votes.

I voted for 5 different months (Mar, Apr, May, Sep, Oct), so that means the other 10 people who voted have only selected 13 choices in total. So it looks like most people have only voted for one particular month.
