Are there talks or something happening at specific times?

Assuming we don't get snowed in overnight, I'll be there tomorrow from about 11am on a green Ninja 250R. I'm hoping to bring a few friends along too. It's my first visit to such a get-together, so I'm looking forward to meeting people.

I've seen that there will be presentations, but I've not seen anything to say what time each one is happening. If last years event is anything to go by you won't be dissapointed.

well, the snow's coming down thick and fast in Huntingdon, and my wife (works for the fire service) tells me it gets heavier the closer you get to London), so I'm pulling out. Sorry all that I'd arranged to meet.

Seem to remember a fair few didn't make it last year due to icy roads - any chance of a different month next year???

Have a good time if you make it - and drive safe

Shame about the weather putting so many off.

It was snowing the largest flakes I have ever seen In Cambridge at 09:00 this morning.

Had a great time at the Ace on Sunday. It was nice to chat to Susan - I shall definitely see about coming to Ripley. Thought you might like to see some photos:

We stopped on the way at the H-Cafe, Berinsfield for a tea break:


Here's the crowd at the Ace Cafe:


Sam Manicom's talk about touring Vietnam. Sorry it's a bit hazy, we'd just come in from outside and the camera lens fogged up a bit.


Some particularly fun bikes:
