Jens, sorry i have been out of circulation for a while, lost my internet connection and been out of the country and on the road a bit. Will be back in the uk end of September - back into Germany from 18/19 sept for about a week (have to stop off and check out the situation again I'm afraid) getting ferry home 25 sept so hopefully be around on the net from then. I will be at the meeting whereever it is see you all there. Jake.
Well Jake, it's nice to hear you are still alive and enjoying the North. I wish I had the holidays to go home to the Fatherland for a few bevvies, but have just booked my flight for the x-mas hols in South America so no holidays left
Let me know when and where you are in Germany, I might be able to help with accomodation, contacts...
Hi, Jens, Looking forward to meeting you again and finding out about your SA trip. Have booked a room at the Inn as coming with girlfriend. For information to others :-the rates are £25.50pppn inc breakfast -
Peter (2 x XT 600 at Blakey, father and son)
Count me in for the second weekend Oct. please.
Food also for one (Hope its as good as food at Belgium meet last weekend!)
PS : If you see a low green tent with a MZ next to it - keep well away - I snore, ask Fritz!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I have asked Phil for the menu so we can preorder our dinners and eat together. As soon as I get that I will post it here for your perousal.
Does anybody have any preferences in terms of ride out on Saturday/Sunday? I can't find any greenlanes on the ordonance survey maps for Northern England, so if you fancy that, your input would be very welcome. Otherwise we could just have a run across the penines for coffee on Hartburn Pass and take it from there?
Allenheads is also great for walking, so if you prefer a 'walk out', that could be arranged.
Any proposal will be entertained or made fun off, promised.
Spoke to Brad on the phone a few weeks ago and he told me to check this site for dates etc, I'd really like to meet you all, at the Allenheads Inn - not been before. On the 13th Oct?
Need a good run out! Anyone else from East Yorkshire going?
If it's too late for food booking - I'll cook my own.
The green lanes around weardale and teesdale are not that long but when you put a few of them together it makes for a canny day out, some of the views over the moors are stunning (if its clear).
I will go and see the NERO rights of way officer to find out the state of the local lanes and what TRO,s are in place at the moment. Most off the lanes are not shown on the OS mapes for some reason.
If anyone fancies a road ride out there are some fantastic roads around weardale and teesdale. And don’t forget your only a stones throw from the Lake District and its twisty mountain roads.
