You will need a flat cap certified crash helmet, a visa from the betting shop, and a guide to keep a eye on you to make sure you don't chat up T'women, tha knows

Hi Paul

your more than welcome. Any make of Bike ,we don't do Clique ,just riding and having fun.

hope to see you then.

I will be on my XR400R for this one

Update....Breakfast will be available each morning at 8.30 from the farm house.

We have 2 off road routes planned.

One I will lead which will be a mix of Back roads .{ tarmac } with a relatively easy off road ride.

Basil will be leading a ride for those that want to ride the harder off road route..Please note not suitable for Novice off roaders.

Craig will lead a B road ride, sticking to tarmac and taking in some cracking route's around the Dales.

the off road rides will leave on saturday at 9.15 ish and. the road ride 10am

All 3 group's will be heading for Masham for lunch.

on my route and craigs road ride there will be a chance for fuel about 15 miles from the campsite.

Basil's route will be about 30 miles before you reach a filling station.

Please bear this in mind.

The ride out's will have a tail end rider so don't worry no one will get lost or left behind.

Steve D is putting up a Marque for us to use once the pub is closed .....!!!!!!.......

we will have a few BBQ's going if you would like to bring anything to chuck on it.

{sad to have to say this...but anyone attending, or riding around with us does so at their own risk.}

stay safe and have fun

looking forward to it

Hi Dazzer
I'll be a tailender if you want. Either on Basil's "hard (on... Probably not, as Dave won't be there )" ride on the DRZ or the road ride on the AT.

Talk on the phone soon,
cheers
Chris

Membership - help keep us going!

Horizons Unlimited is not a big multi-national company, just two people who love motorcycle travel and have grown what started as a hobby in 1997 into a full time job (usually 8-10 hours per day and 7 days a week) and a labour of love.
