Yeah, I'd avoid the Cola too Phil...and I still can't face a pizza either!

If someone can drive a stake in the ground and confirm a location for the second weekend in October I'd like to come along too.

Another Newbie

As a regular reader of the website can I turn up too?
I have been mentioed by my now Ex girlfriend, as the guy who jollies around the european winterb bike rallies on a c90 cub.
the second weekend would be perfect timing for me.
Can I suggest the campsite in Dent (Cumbria/N.Yorks area), they are really welcoming to small bike rallies and the and food in dent in superb...
Hope to meet you guys at last,
cheers, A ndy.

Andy,
Of course you are welcome!

Joe,
Can't find that campsite on the web. Do you have the name? What's the pub called?

Fritz,
Sorry mate, looks like you will miss out again.

Can anybody who wants to come not make the weekend of 13/14/15 October (I would have to check that weekend with the pub anyway...)?

All,
Current best option from my alternatives list is The Allenheads Inn in Allenheads (NE47 9HJ). It's kind of in the middle of the village, but I have tentative permission from the farmer's eldest daughter for camping in the Triangle Field - 200 yards from the pub. (Field is only ever used for camping - coast2coast, scouts...). Those who do not want to camp have ample options for B&B or Bunkhouses in the villeage.

Good selection of s, option to pre-order food for quick serving of 20+ people, breakfast £4, and the lovely Allendale valley. Landlord said: "Adventure bikers? Right up my street..."

I guess this is probably right on the border to North Yorkshire???

How would you feel about that?

Jens

Ay.

Allenheads sounds nice to me. (Personally makes a change from Alwinton area as i've stayed there loads of times both in the Rose and Thistle and the old Clennell Hall when trail riding) and if the landlord in Allenhead likes Adventure bikes, all the better.

Either weekend suits me at the moment (thats as long as work doesn't throw a spanner in the works)

room for one more?

I might be up for it, if I can get the beast fixed...........

What sort of riding would be involved, only done the heavily loaded 'the tarmacs run out' sort of off-road stuff, but was definitely bitten by the bug and keen to do more.

On that note can anyone reccomend any nice friendly green lanes (now only BOaTs...) in the Peak or near Sheffield?

back to the garage, my luggage racks fell apart when I tried to take them off, didn't realise so many bolts had sheared off.....

Either weekend is fine. The later you leave it though, the colder/wetter it'll be...

Let's firm up the date and place soon.

Chris, you big sizzy, you are not afraid of a bit of wet and cold, are you???

But I agree, if there are no objections I will nail that date to the 13/14/15 for Fritze's benefit (and expect you to be there, Fritz). Benefit of the original date was that Otterburn Range was open (Non-Firing weekend), but Allenheads is about 40 miles from the range, and I am sure there are other good places for a ride out.

Henryuk, just come along. Field will be big enough, I hope, and I am sure they will sort it out in the pub. I guess there will be people on street bikes and might not want to go off road...and I don't know any green lanes in the area anyhow...perhabs somebody else has some ideas?

Jens

Actually, just confirmed with the Landlord and the Farmer.

13/14/15 October in Allenheads, Allenheads Inn, Triangle Field

I have booked for 20 people butneed to confirm the numbers with them a week or two in advance so they can go food shopping. They will prepare a menue for the dinner on the busy days which we can pick from in advance to make their live easier. Means they can get the right food in and start preparing early so we can eat together.

Once I received the menue I will post it and collect 'proper' bookings.

There will still be room for some people that decide to come on the day, as long as we get the bulk organised....

And yes, everyone is welcome!

Jens

BDG is correct. Even though it's up Allendale... roughly south of Hexham/Hayden Bridge...

Hence the Postcode...
