Cornwall 2012?

Anyone fancy another Cornwall meet?

It will probably be a new venue this year as we have bought an old cottage a mile further up the hill. We had to spend the summer renovating but I now have a shed big enough to work on the bike without having to move everything else outside and a BIG back garden.

Accomodation will be camping in the garden, although I might be able be able to squeeze a few in the house. Last year I had questions about bringing a van/landy - no problems. There is a pub 50m down the road so no shortage of , not that there was any problem last year. They do good old fashioned pub grub, not quite as nice as the Crows Nest last year but a bit cheaper. If we have the numbers I might even be able persuade them to let us have exclusive use of the restaurant on Saturday night for a meal and presentations (any volunteers?) There is also a village shop/post office/tea room across from the pub.


I am happy to do a trail ride on Saturday again and/or there could be the opportunity of a trials course at the end of the garden, bike provided (I said it was big).

For anyone who doesn't fancy trail riding, you might want to bring a pair of boots you can walk in as we are right on the moor. If you head north the first road is close to 10 miles away, but you don't have to go far to get some fabulous views, providing the weather is clear.

So how about it? Is February OK again or would people prefer it to ba a bit later?

Last years one was great, I'd be up for coming down.

A little later in the year makes camping more pleasureable but I'm happy to action man it up.

Date pending

Pending the date, I work every other Saturday, count me in, last year was fantastic. I will contact Diehard and Chef Jules and let them know.

Ted you won't make this one you will have a sore arse, poorly leg, dodgy stomach, brain tumor or a broken bike. Unless... you turn up in the Berlingo with a 10 man frame tent and cast iron woodburner

You saw it here!

Rossi, so far half of the Wirral posse signed up. Ted is coming along just to prove that he didn't actually stay hidden in his girlfriends bedroom for 6 months and post a load of photoshopped pictures on his blog

Any Doombar planned? I had developed a taste for it by Sunday morning

I have Raynauds disease in my fingers so cold riding cripples me

If if happens when it's cold, I'll just come down in my Berlingo Multispace with a gas bbq and a crate of

Talking Hooray!!!

I'm definitely up for it again, a HU meet in my own county, even if it is 100 miles up north.
I can be flexible on dates, though February camping is fine with me.

Happy to do a talk if you want. Happy to just eat, drink, ride and chat.

Be good to have you along again and I'm sure folk would appreciate a talk. Watch out for those hedges though if you want to join the trail ride this year.



Doombar - the pub has it on tap but I could try to get a couple of kegs delivered.

And me - I'd like to come please if its before the end of Feb as I'm off a scootering on March 4th. Possibly one other with me but we'll share a tent anyway so it shouldn't cause a space issue.
