Anyone up for few drinks on Thursday evening in Central London?
Suggest meeting at Cafe rouge, 34 Wellington Street - WC2E &BD (Covent garden), from 6pm onward to discuss trips, past and to come, and try to organise a weekend ride (if any interest!) later on the year.
See you there,
I'm going riding this sat arvo up to Wales as i'm the only one who can fit in with my plans (saw the post on trying to orginise a ride weekend for the southerners funny)
Hey! At least someone will turn up! Almost tempted to ask for asylum up North! They seem to be more outgoing and having more fun over there!
See you then! Will have my HU T-chirt!
I'm off to Wales too, but next weekend! Doing the BMW off-road training thing! Should be interesting!
I'm new to all this stuff, I have'nt been anywhere interesting on my bike,and that bike is of the sports variety, BUT, plans are afoot to change all of that !. I should be able to pop in for a while during work, it would be interesting to meet you all.
I think a southern UK mini meet would be a very good idea, but we don't seem to be able to organise a piss up in a brewery. Unfortunately I won't be able to make it to Covent Garden as I'm going to the AMR meet in Germany, and then the HU meeting in Belgium.
But if it's of any help I have been on a local reccie in Hampshire and found two excellent pubs with their own campsites.
The Pub with no name at priors Dean has an excellent, inclosed, flat, camping field. With water supply and toilet. The food is excellent and it has a fine selection of real ale.
The flower pots at Cheriton has B&B (£40 single, £65 double). Its own brewery and good food. Although the camping Field is rather sloping.
I can supply waypoints and directions to get to either as I've personally tested both.
You tricked me by moving forum! You can't shake me that easily. I'll be there around 6ish. Note to all: There is nowhere to park around that area. There is a bike bay near Aldwych that usually has one or two spaces and sometimes you can get a space just around the back of the Strand. I suggest to all that you leave your bikes at home unless you plan on arriving before 8am! If I get this job at MAG I applied for, I will certainly be pressing to convert more car parking spaces to bike bays. It's getting ridiculous now.
I've just spoken to David Lomax, who said he would be available to do talk's on the weekend of either 7-8 Oct or 14 -15 Oct if we could cover his travelling expenses. He would be happy to do talk Friday evening. Saturday afternoon and Saturday night.
But if we can get other speakers, he will be more than happy to stand aside and have a well earned rest.
I shall leave this in your more than capable hands, and see Grant in Belgium to catch up with the latest.
If memory serves, there is a reasonable size bike bay in the dead end part of russell street just off wellington st, and also in burleigh street which is barely a two minute walk away. Gaps tend to appear from about half six onward.
Cooped up indoors in crap weather? Binge watch over 20 hours of inspiring, informative and entertaining stories and tips from 150 travellers! Check it out at the HU Store! Remember to order them both and use Coupon Code 'BoxSet+' on your order when you checkout.
