Brilliant! I'm sitting here with a smile. We are back from a very excellent month riding in Spain and its great to see all the posts and emails about the HUBB. Shame not to have been around for the launch but those back roads and gravel roads were calling

I'm intrigued by travel in all its forms, so I'm looking forward to this.

Having said that, Motorbiking's obviously best !

Hi Chris, Good question thanks - never been asked it before either! I think the best way to deal with this is for you to register again in your name, but to put a note in the 'comments' box to the effect that the registration name will change nearer the event. Then just email us when you know who it'll be and we'll do the change on the database.

That'll work

Sam on BikerFM tonight

If anyone has any questions about the HUBB UK event and fancies getting their name mentioned on the radio, Sam Manicom will be on BikerFM tonight from 10pm (that's UK time - Wed 24th Oct).

For those that aren't already familiar with it, BikerFM is an online radio service and as the name suggests it's dedicated to bikers.

You can listen-in here....

When the show is on-air, you'll find a link on the left-hand menu for submitting questions.

As ws stated by Iain, the mindset is simiar for all. The only real difference is the lack of documentation needed for pushbikes but the fears and needs are pretty much the same.

I have a 4x4 and a big adveture bike along withmy under used push bike (those that have seen my figure will testify to that).

Next year we are going on the bike to North and South America and the year after we are going to South Africa in the Landrover. I am the same person regardless of what I am using and the travel issues are very much the same. Rain is easier to cope with in the landy though !
There are an awful lot of adventurers that have both types of vehicle.

Hope this helps. Ray

PS Cant come next year. Be in the US as stated. Where Sam cannot bully me anymore. Only joking......

men in lycra!!

"I am not sure what I can learn from middle aged men in Lycra or 4 x 4 ers"

Funny as lol. Nearly spat my tea out when I read that! I am hoping to learn a bit from them I assume they will be travelling a LOT lighter than anyone else. I cant wait to see their set up. As the years advance and I head towards my dotage the bike is becoming heavier and heavier and I need more comfort, so I am now the proud owner of Touring Teds ex berlingo known as the "Bang Bus". More and more of my 2 up camping will be done in this and I hope to learn a lot from the 4 x 4 guys.

Old age, it catches up with all of us

Not this time

Sadly i will miss Ripley, i have had some great times there, and met many fine folks, the staff at Lumd Farm were excellent and i loved the lay out of the venue, even the donkeys! I'm afraid i wont be attending Donington park in 2013, i'll possibly be on the road anyway but in 2014 i may go to the Northern Ireland meet. As an ex racer i've stayed at the Donington Park hotel on several occasions and never been happy there, especially with the food, so i hope things are improved now and i wish you all a good meet hope the weather holds out.

Sorry to hear you'll miss out on the HUBB UK event, but I'm sure you'll have a great time with Liam and Naomi in Ireland the year after.

Having sampled the excellent service at the new venue, and heard the praise for it and its food from many other people, I can only guess things have changed since you were last there.

All pre registered and paid up for the nice £45 discounted rate.

What a nice feeling - booked up for my first event on my own without support from a car

Didn't order a t-shirt as the sizes seem on the small side for a larger boned rider like me and shall pick one up at the event instead when I can try one on.

Won't be heading up until the Thursday afternoon from Gloucester if any others fancy a trip with me?

Don't forget...

Just posted a reminder and update in the HUBB UK announcement thread, but wanted to add the reminder here too....

Today is the last opportunity to pre-register at the most-discounted rate of £45 per person. The website will switch-over to £55 at around 11pm tonight (UK time).

All the latest event info is here and the main pre-registration form is here.

We're really pleased with how it's gone in the first couple of months. The interest and feedback about the new venue and new format has been brilliant - really positive. Even at this still relatively early stage, it's lining-up to be a cracking event.

Many thanks again to everyone who's already shown their support by pre-registering, volunteering, offering to present, and booking space in the Adventure Travel and HUBB Zones.

Keep 'em coming - 209 days to go
