Hi all
We're back safely. Roads weren't too bad. Riding conditions a bit dodgy at times though.

Thanks to Paul for leading the ride (or should that be slide?) out. I'll try and post some pics taken along with way.

Good to see you all and hope everyone had a good weekend!

Thanks to Jake for doing all the groundwork for this mini treffen.

Debz

P.S. I lost my navy Craghoppers fleece last night. Took it off in pub and put it with some other jackets and it was gone at the end of the night. If you empty your kit and come across an unfamiliar fleece it's probably mine. I'm hoping someone has picked it up by mistake. Cheers.

Hi Reggie - That's Debz not Debs. I know it is confusing. Don't know how many pints Debz had. I only had a couple. then I went on to the whisky

Debs.

Glad you got back safely, Debz.

I'm alive! 7 hours, average of 40mph, but got here eventually. I lost the snow around Nottingham, only to find the million or so people heading home after half term, and miles and miles and miles of roadworks. Now bathed and with a glass of wine, looking forward to a 5am start and lots of hard work tomorrow.

Thanks to just about everyone there, but especially to Ian for picking me up (again and again and again) and providing an excellent tyre-changing demonstration, Paul for patching my tube and getting me safely to York, Steve for getting the TA down The Hill, and Alex for helping me sort my heated grips before the trip, I would not have survived without them!

Sold my old GPZ via fleabay on Sat, whatever the money goes towards will include knobbly tyres!!!

That's really good to know Laura, we need the rest to report safely in. At least most of the snow on the roads had turned to slush before we set off and the major roads were quite clear. Can't wait to see the pics myself.

Hi all,
Thanks for a excellent weekend,
All back safe and WARM.

Great intro for a first timer and the ride out polished the ‘how not too’ for the dodgy ride home,

Great meeting you all, can’t wait till the next time.

A big thank you to Ian, Debz and Jake for organising and to Paul for leading the ride.
