Jens,

Does it pose a problem for you if instead of just me, there are another 2 or 3 people. One of whom was at Blakey Ridge with me last time.

The plan is to do as much off road as possible and trail ride up from Manchester arriving tea time Saturday. We'll probably be soft and find a B & B because we'll almost certainly be very wet and muddy from the off roading.

Don't know about food yet until i speak to the others.

Certainly doesn't pose a problem to me. I would think that you will be catered for and there are romms either at the pub, or I could go and find out about the bunkhouses or other B&Bs. Just let me know if you need help.

If you want to eat with the rest, it might be a good idea to preorder...

Jens

Ive got accurate maps of all the legal lanes in county durham and most of the north post NERC, so am up for some riding up that way. Unfortunately cant get hold of them until Sunday as im stuck down in Woking working......

I guess the more the merrier...

Good maps with lanes would be great!

Just let us know when you come and what you want to eat...

Is this the one and only Wonky that slept by the fire at out KTM meet in Derbyshire and made the very early start to go trail riding?

If so look forward to seeing you mate, but get a haircut first please (i'm only jealous coz i've been bald for years!)

Chris returned your pm, but yes i'll wear my sheepskin and say BAAAAA! for you.

Menu

Fritz, Bev

Excellent, looking forward to seeing you guys...

Thought I bump the menu for easier finding:

Email from Ann and Phil:

Dear Jens
Thanks for your email and phone call.

The Menu:

BREAKFAST
Orange juice
Grapefruit segments
Cereals
Toast
Egg, bacon, tomatoes, beans, mushrooms and sausage
Tea and coffee
£4.50 per head

DINNER
Steak cassarole cooked in red wine served with potatoes and a selection of vegetables.
Home made beef lasagne served with chips, peas and salad.
Chicken curry served with rice, samosa and naan bread.
Roast chicken served with a cranberry stuffing, potatoes and a selection
of vegetables.
£6.95 per head.

All the above work well with large groups as we can prepare up front and
therefore serve all of you as quickly as possible.
For the evening with the smaller group we could also offer sirloin steaks
or gammon steaks served with chips, mushrooms, onion rings and salad.
Steak £10.00 per head and gammon £8.95 per head.
Because all the steaks are cooked to order it is not possible to cook 20
all different and to serve you all at the same time hence offering this to the smaller group only.
Vegetarian dishes available.
If your group have other ideas on what they would like to eat please ring
and we can have a chat about it.
Regards
Ann & Phil

Looking forward to it!

Original idea was road bike but this has now changed to off roading up from Manchester on WR 450/ XR 650/ XR 400 with a couple of the other guys.

I know full well the effects of drowning my own bike one to many times before in the past, hope your's isn't too bad. See you there.

Unless you don't wanna come your name is still on the list.

Food applications? Just post here, or send me a PM (if you are ashamed of your eating habits...)
