Sunday 26th October for the first MIDLANDS MICRO MEET UP.(sorry for the late notice..) Cant really call it a meet as it is really just a ride and a lunch.. but hey it started here http://www.horizonsunlimited.com/hub...ers-sign-37972
but to encourage more people I have started a new thread.
The plan in a nutshell… Meet, ride, lunch with lots of random conversations, ride , go home…
So the plan in detail is a simple one, as the midlands is a large place I propose a two pronged attack.
The first part is that for whom ever wants to.. meet up at the Bassets Pole round-a-bout just off the A38 at 0930-1000h either in the pub or McHell across the lot). This is easy to get to from the most of the major routes, and once there starts to get nice..
(okay well maybe not sunny)...
Head off for an hour+ ride up to the Peaks District via some nice little A-roads (A515 type of thing). Ending up at The Old Smithy Cafe in Monyash (it is between Ashbourne and Buxton), Our own FlyingDoctor reports that they have a “great all day breakfast and nice ice creams too”.
Hopefully meet up with more of our northern brotheran and sisteran
. Have lunch during which we have
"very serious discussions"
about bikes, trips, future trips, how one by one the penguins pilferedmy sanity
, anything really of little to no value, to any one but us.
Then head in some direction for a bit to see some nice roads and nice sights (route to be discussed or argued or randomly chosen at the time). The latter is my preference? Any locals want to play tour guide?
Then take the long road back. via anywhere you want.. it is hard to find a road that is not nice up there to head generally home, together or not what ever suits you at the time..
It will be a nice slowish ride, the speed will be controlled by the slowest among us (which as I will be two up is likely to be me) and with no dirt, no pressure and no fuss. All HUbbers are and all types of bikes are welcome.
