I would like to thank everyone that braved the very wet weather on Friday to get to this meeting.

The rain stopped around 6pm on friday evening ,

once everyone had their tent's up it was off to the Pub for a few pint's

Waking on saturday morning to clear sky and mist in the Valley was a good sign.

The 3 group's were all ready to leave just after 8am.

Basils group were the first on the the lanes. while Dazzers groupe along with craig and nicks group rode a few miles down the Valley to Burnsal for a Full english breakfast.

My group left Burnsal just after 9am to start our long days riding.

we would be the first to come to the river crossings ,which after all the rain we had had in the last 24 hours would be running high.

lucky for us we had dazco in our group who came forward to volunteer to test how deep the crossing would be...

we found the first few hours hard going on the narrow slippy lanes.
By 10am the sun was out.

We called in to Masham for lunch before we took on Red Lane.

on our way over Kidstones we came across 3 KTM riders one of which had had a bad fall and required medical help and the hellicopter was on it's way.
I waited till that arrived then rode on to catch the rest of our group up.

Deb's and Ian were behind us on their bmw outfit, which worked out well,as Debs offered to ride the injured riders KTM to our campsite so that it could be collected later in the evening.

Thankfully all our riders returned in one piece .

later that night in the Pub as more was consumed the river crossing got deeper and the slow speed off's became high speed crashes

The owner of the campsite would only take £2 per night for the camping so on saturday night the rest of the money along with the £20 the KTM rides left for the helpers to have a drink with were all put in the Air Ambulance Collection box.

I was in my sleeping bag at 10pm { Iam getting old you know } I did hear that crusty was still partying till 5am

Hope everone had a great time and thank you all once again.

photo will be posted soon.

Excellent weekend - even with the rain all the way there and all the way back! At least the sun shone for the Saturday rideouts.

Great to catch up with friends and made a few new ones along the way.

Cracking video footage of Dazco in the river.

Big thanks to Darren for sharing his knowledge (and lending us his marked up map) so the outifts could go play at our own pace.

Thanks to everyone involved in organising the weekend - roll on the next one!

Iain & Debz

It was excellent to catch up with people. Shame I had to work Sat morning so couldn't do the ride out. Many thanks to Iain for taking me for a spin in the outfit. My first time steering a sidecar and the first time since 2002 on a r100gs . It was great

cheers
Chris

First but not last

Just to say thanks to everyone involved in organising the past weekend. It was my first ride out but definately not my last, maybe something lighter next time and a crack at a harder route? The ride on Saturday was well organised and pitched perfectly for me as a novice, the weather could have been better but the company could not. look forward to the next one.....
Ride Safe
