Not exactly a welcome response. I don't need or usually like to stay in B&Bs but more to the point the idea of camping together is to get to know others.
I was merely asking why stay in a site prone to flooding if another is available.

It was not ment to sound un-welcomeing

It's a laid back meeting so if people want to saty else where and just turn up for the ride out's that's fine.


We are useing this site,because the site is closed and only open for our meeting.

It's ease to get breakfast made here,and it's very laid back .so no problem with having a few 's late at night...unlike the other site

I'll be heading north on Sunday, take in in a couple of trails through Kirby Stephen, Brough and Penrith areas if you fancy it ??

Maybe even head west after Penrith and take a trip down the Old Coach road ??

Sounds good, let us know what time ur thinkin of going.

Old coach road's a bit of a mess at the mo, bloody 4 wheelers have made a bog of a section half way through. Also one of the ''puddles'' submerged the missus drz's exhaust!

I'll be on a 650 trannie so be gentle...

later!

I reported that to the Highways, TRF and Countryside rangers on 26th June, also reported how the original culprit had destroyed a footpath sign to use as a slider. Not sure why these people find it neccassary to continue when it's clearly doing alot of damage.......

Even took a picture :



I'll be heading north on the Sunday, about 10ish going over the coal road, then picking up the byway that runs alongside the B6259 - not sure after that, loads to choose from though.

That's now about a metre deep and churned up peat the whole width-and-a-bit of the path. Not pretty.

As for the route, as long as my trannie will handle it, I'm game!

See you then.

Hey,

I think we will join your little party, as we got back into the country yesterday, after our Africa jaunt.

We can only make the Fri, as we already have plans made for us on the Sat, but should be good.

One question though; does the campsite have access suitable for a Blackbird? Or is it strictly an off roader entrance?

Birdy

PS, Jake, hope to see you there. I read your email this morning (if you remember sending it - it was some time ago) Thanks for the good wishes - they saw us there and back, safe and sound!

The site has a gravel track but as you would expect, its a grass campsite.. If you're careful and slow im sure you could get a street bike in. I hope so anyway, because my friend has an SV.

You'd have to take it easy, and maybe choose a pitch near the entrance. I was there a couple of weeks back, these might give you a better idea:
