yeah, done the A68 enough (by moto and car) to think it's a bit dodgy on a bicycle. But, I need the practice for some planned trips.

thanks for the tips, re getting off the A68. if I make it to Tan Hill I'll buy you a . I'll be the knackered one in the corner, with the shorts on...

Is this one hundred percent definitely confirmed?

Do we need any kind of booking, or do we just turn up and have fun? What kind of numbers are we looking at?

Tan Hill is a bit of a trek from Lincoln, but I would like to add my name to the party.

It is as many percent confirmed as you want it to be. We've set the date. We've decided a place. I will be there. Several others have also said they'll be there. If the weather's rubbish the day before (which in mid November in North Yorkshire is guaranteed), less people will come. See post number 31.

In a previous post I answered this question. See post number 12.

Me and Mrs.X will be there (current plan is arrive Friday night)! We will be camping.

We are planning a ride to Richmond on the Saturday morning to go to the Alt-berg shop . Mrs.X needs a pair of boots and i may get a 2nd pair.

So if anyone is interested going with us please feel free. I was only thinking that if a large group of us decide to head that way all at once it may be nice to warn them. The factory shop is kinda small. See you in the ice and snow..:thu mbup1:

My apologies, I am half blind and pretty sub-normal in the old intelligence department. Looked through and totally missed the post with all the answers in!

The Dales in the grip of winter sounds lovely. I look forward to it.

Thanks

Birdy November in the dales is a breeze - certainly not the grip of winter as you seem to think. Sun will shine and we all make hay - or something like that.

Chris rumour is that you are bringing your mate, Ewan and his Charlie.

I'll probably show up with the Scottish contingent, assuming a) no-one asks me to work for an amount of money I can't turn down (don't worry, if that happens I'll let you know how much you're worth ) and b) my heated grips have arrived by then. Not that I'm sat at home waiting for the postman or anything...

There is no problems with anybody turning up, the Northern continjent will speak to anybody (you won't be able to understand half of them) as long as your buying drinks.
