Give it a go

If we do it again we could start to plan it now,but this time do it before we put the clock's back .

The area we have in mind as a bunk houes,so you only need to bring a sleeping bag.
There is a drying room just incase the weather is wet, and kitchen ,and the pub is only 100 yards away

for thoes that still want to camp there is room for a few tent's.

The cost is only a few pound's but I will get the correct price soon.

We can once again do a B road ride out and a group for the easy trail ride and a harder trail ride for those hardcore rider's !!!.

So ...anyone interested

Well been piss wet all summer so might as well give it a go.

Thank You all for posting

Craig ,Nick and I have been out today scouting for a new site to use.

we hope to here from one place in the next few day's.

This would be perfect to use, but if they can't do it we will go to the other site.

Both site's we have in mind are only a few minute's ride from the trail's we will be riding

Dates.....1st 2nd 3rd of October

We were thinking of early October.
{ sorry Ted ,but you will be in the Sunshine by then }

That will give everyone plenty of time to free up the weekend and it's also before the clock's go back which will give us a but more day light.

Ok The date is booked for the 1st 2nd and 3rd of October.

so we can't use one of the campsite's we had in mind because the local pub as a wedding on that saturday and they won't be able to cope with us aswell.

So We are using the campsite in Kettlewell .

Site entrance is across from the garage filling station in the centre of the village

The price will be £3 per person per night.

I will arrive Friday afternoon.

If we wish the site will provide a few large BBQ's for us to cook our own food on

They can also do a Lamb Spit Roast with baps on saturday evening for £4 pp for all you can eat if were are interested.

There are 3 pub's in the village to keep us entertained each night,and best of all there only a 2 minute walk from the campsite.

If anyone would like a B and B there are plenty in the village have a look here http://www.kettlewell.info/accommodation.cfm

Saturday morning we will be having a few ride out's.

There will be a Hard off road route for those will plenty of experience.

Also a steady ride out with a mix of easy trail's and small tarmac country lane's.

We aim to leave the campsite on saturday morning at 8,30 for the short ride to Burnsal where we will have Breakfast.

Breakfast Choice is.....

beacon sandwich.. £2.10
egg.................... £1.50
double egg..........£1.70

Another full breakfast please Dazzer, and I'll have a go at the hard route (and hope it doesn't have a go at me).
£4 for all you can eat sounds good.
See you Friday aft. Dean
Anything can happen in the next half hour

I might be in the country then, and I might have Harri the invincible back on the road (she still works after our trip, but she is some distance from UK roadworthy!)

If both those conditions are fulfilled, I'll get my arse over to Yorks to join you. Who thinks they can beat a half drunk guy riding a Cg125 across a muddy bog?

Oh, that will be everyone with their hands up then.


Ride Safe.

Count me in as well, if there's space.
Full brekkie and lamb roast sounds about right.
Easy trail ride out, to test me balance on just acquired F800GS...I'm on tippy toes so not too much feet down stuff would suit ! And the back tyres pretty much stuffed, and any other excuse I can think of to cover my lack of ability...

see you there teatime friday
Cheers MM
