sounds great to me

Hi there I would love to meet up if thats ok? I would be riding up from Wirral with my GF on the back of me transalp and alongside Ted Magnum. The ride to keighly to turn back to get to the lakes is the wrong way around for me I would prefer to go straight there if you can give me or ted directions?
Sounds great i have my hip flask full!!

Bert, the grass will grow back, eventually. It's the green nutters who want to put these in the lakes you should be worried about.

Not sure who had the big fire

But many people wild camp here and you will be pressed to find any litter left behind.

If I were passing through on my own then I would have made my fire at the edge of the stream.

This meeting is about getting away from it all... { Moaning included }

our fire will be on the site of one thats already been used.

when we leave you wont know we have been there .


Dazzer

PS

I will be pming everyone soon with the location.All we need hope for now is some good weather .

Looking at the pics in post #1, the road is paved, so any rubber will do (or whatever you prefer for single lane roads). You won't need anything special to ride the 20 yards across the grass.

See you there,
Chris

Oh yeah

I missed that large paved road. Thought it might be more at the end of the farmers track/green lane

Note to self look at the photos harder next time
