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.

Cheers BDG / Jens, strangely I modded my post after I realised it was Weardale - but then forgot to save changes I guess? We'll be there.

Alec,

Glad you enjoyed the food in Belgium. Not sure what will be on the menue, yet, apart from the full english.

I shall ask the landlord to send me his proposals and publish them here. Then everybody can preorder and we might get to eat together. At least there will be enough grub...I hope...

With regards to the snoring...you should have heard them in Bleaky...or was that me???

Jens

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.

Jens

Iain knows a guy who has info on off road stuff around that area so he'll try and get in touch with him to find out what's open and what's not before we get there.

Can i came too please?

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.

Many thanks
Col Campbell

Current count is 23! Bang on target. Obviously, that doesn't mean you can't come, if you haven't said anything, yet.

Bonzo, Jim2002,
I take it you are coming?

Ian and Debz,
Any news on the greenlaning?

Still waiting for the menu, guess I give them another call tomorrow...

Jens

Hi all
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.

Iain
