HUBB UK 2018

Thursday 14th to Sunday 17th June 2018 - Baskerville Hall

On Two Wheels or More  -  It's All About Overland Adventure

Whether you're a seasoned veteran with wisdom to share or a complete novice hungry for ideas and guidance, it doesn't matter if you ride a motorcycle, a bicycle, or drive any kind of expedition vehicle...

Horizons Unlimited meetings are for everyone who dreams of adventure along the road less travelled.

Inspiring, Informing & Connecting

Some people value Horizons Unlimited events for what they learn from the unique line-up of presenters. Some people value the chance to discover new products and services at the trade stands. Some people value just kicking back with a beer among old friends and new.

Most people enjoy a little bit of everything, and everyone goes home fired-up for adventure with a smile on their face.

Authors and exhibitors at HUBB UK 2017.

The event will include a packed schedule of presentations and activities. All within the relaxed and friendly atmosphere that Horizons Unlimited is known for.

Presentation board at HUBB UK 2017.

There are three presentation rooms, a Skills Course with some surprises, the popular Slow Bike Race, and our unconventional take on the 'Best in Show' concept for motorcycles, bicycles and expedition vehicles.

Adventure Travel Zone at HUBB UK 2017.

The Adventure Travel Zone is where you'll find the trade stands for many of the leading names in overland travel, including authors, film-makers, equipment suppliers and tour operators. And of course there'll be the HU Store selling the Achievable Dream and Road Heroes DVDs as well as a range of limited-edition t-shirts.

The HUBB Zone will feature an eclectic array of clubs, online community forums and magazines.

HUBB UK Event Schedule

The Registration Tent will open for check-ins at noon on Thursday 14th June, with the first presentations beginning at 1pm. The event will draw to a close at 12pm on Sunday 17th June.

Over the course of the event there'll be hundreds of sessions of talks, demonstrations, workshops, Q&A's, challenges and competitions, with many presentations being repeated so you won't miss out. Whatever your past experience or future plans may be, there's something for everyone.

Draft schedule can be downloaded here approx 1 week before the event.

PLEASE NOTE: The schedule is subject to change at any time - all the presenters are volunteers and travelling, thus they may be delayed or unable to get there. Some may have anxiety attacks and be unable to perform! ;-) And sometimes travellers show up unexpectedly with great pics and stories, so we try to fit them in!

Lots more to come...

How about you? We're all here to learn, and there's LOTS to learn! We want to do more presentations and seminars - but we need volunteers to give them! Any topic you can contribute having to do with motorcycle travel, maintenance, planning etc, lasting 20 minutes or more, would be great. Please sign up here.


It's time to regain your riding legs - maybe you've been brushing up on your skills, or maybe it's long past time you did? Got a new Adventure bike, and finding it a little intimidating?

Now, what if you could get an extra confidence boost by taking off-road skills training at the HUBB UK event?

Following the success of 2017, we're again offering Off-road Skills Training for HUBB UK registrants and a wee prize challenge on the Saturday afternoon - details on that to come!

Lee Walters.

Lee Walters, Off Road Training

Former UK Enduro Champion Lee Walters has been riding off road since the age of six, where he went on to become the Welsh School Boy Champion.

Lee currently trains all levels of riders at his Lee Walters ORT school in Wales, based at Baskerville Hall!

How does it work?

Training takes place from 08:00 – 17:00 Friday and Saturday, and 08:00-12:00 on Sunday, on the Baskerville Hall grounds.

Lee Walters demonstrates technique at HUBB UK 2016!On track training is only £45 for each half day sessions.

Openings are limited to maintain an 8:1 student-to-instructor ratio. This ensures a better training experience for all! Registration closes when we're full.

PRE-Registration is strongly recommended. There MAY be spaces available on the day, there may not!

All classes run if there are at least 5 students. If not enough students, we may move you to another slot.

Border crossings - How to get through borders with minimal stress and cost!

Packing light - Tips and techniques from experienced travellers to reduce weight and bulk.

Regional discussions - e.g. travelling in South America or Asia.

HUBB UK 2018 is back at Baskerville Hall Hotel, on the edge of the Brecon Beacons and Black Mountain National Park. WE have booked the entire hotel for this event!

Baskerville Hall.


Baskerville Hall Hotel
Clyro Court, Hay on Wye
Powys HR3 5LE
United Kingdom

Phone: +44 1497 820033

Less than a mile from the A438, this country house hotel dates from 1839 and is surrounded by 130 acres of Welsh countryside overlooking the Wye Valley on the edge of the Brecon Beacons and Black mountain National Park.

Hay-on-Wye, famous for its second hand book shops and Festival of Literature and Art, is just over a mile away nestled beside the river Wye.

On our doorstep we have one of the best playgrounds for those wishing to sample what the great outdoors has to offer, with mountains for gorge walking, pony trekking, and the river Wye for Canoeing and rafting, with many more activities and places of interest to visit for the athletic or the gentler hearted alike.

The indoor heated swimming pool and sauna is a great place to relax after your busy day or just relax in the residents bar before dinner.

Free WiFi is available in the reception area.

So much happening at HUBB UK you need to follow the signs to find it all!

Rider Training!

We're excited that the venue supports fantastic rider training including off-road courses plus lots of bush for ride-outs, and we have plans to use it... See the video below from Lee Walters off-road training for a taster!

Campsite & Parking

The extensive campsite is on mostly flat, well-drained, ground. The main camping field has drinking water stand-pipes at regular intervals around the perimeter. It is surrounded by trees on two sides (with views towards the river Wye), and a large box-hedge facing the terraced garden and the hotel beyond.

Please help to conserve the fields for future events by not skidding, wheel-spinning, etc. The organisers reserve the right to restrict vehicle movement and parking subject to weather and ground conditions.


Powered spaces are extremely limited, only for medical issues, CPAP machines, etc. These will be allocated on a first come, first served basis and based on need. When you register, indicate in the comments why you need it (you can charge your phone/tablet at the Charging Station at the Reg Desk).

No Fires

There's a strict 'no fires' policy across the whole site, but camping stoves and BBQs are allowed. BBQs must be raised above the ground on bricks supplied by the venue via the volunteer Campsite Crew. Please be aware that Horizons Unlimited will be obliged by the venue to enforce these rules very strictly.

Showers & Toilets

There are a number of shower and toilet blocks in the camping area (paid for by Horizons Unlimited!) plus additional showers and toilets in Baskerville Hall which may be used by campers.

"I'm at HUBB UK with some of the sweetest smelling mobile toilets you'll find at any camp site." Patrick at HUBB UK 2017, posted on Facebook

Food & Beer

Baskerville Hall will be offering a buffet service for breakfasts, lunches and evening meals, plus a la carte options - all at great value prices. They'll include vegetarian choices.

There is Real Ale available in the bar.

Children & Dogs

Horizons Unlimited is naturally keen to inspire the next generation of adventure travellers so you're welcome to bring your children along if you wish, but do bear in mind that the event is for adults (with adult themes and language) and we won't have any specific kids' activities. Children under 14 years old get in for free. Please note that the health and safety of your children is your responsibility and they must be supervised by you at all times. Children will not be allowed in any of the presentations from 8pm onwards each evening.

If you'd like to bring your dog along to the event we'll have a special area set aside for you to camp in. You'll need to ensure your pet remains on a lead at all times and doesn't damage or foul the site. Owners of noisy or aggressive dogs may be asked to leave.

Baskerville Hall History

"Baskerville Hall was built in 1839 by Thomas Mynors Baskerville for his second wife, Elizabeth. The Baskervilles were related to the Dukes of Normandy and first came to Britain to help William the Conqueror in 1066.

Arthur Conan Doyle was a family friend who often came to stay here. During his many visits he learnt of the local legend of the hounds of the Baskervilles. It is reputed that on nearby Hergest Ridge he translated this into probably the most famous case for his celebrated detective Sherlock Holmes. However, at the request of his friends he set the book in Devon 'to ward off tourists'.

Since the Second World War the house has been used as a school, then a hotel and health farm, until 1984 when the present owner David Hodby took over and undertook extensive restoration work.

The 19th-century style is reflected in many rooms. All amenities are incorporated, thus providing guests and visitors with comfortable surroundings whilst keeping alive its historical roots."

HU Supported Charity

Do Good as You Go.

The HU Supported Charity is 'Do Good As You Go', Volunteer Programs for Independent Travelers Around the World, which is run by the Muskoka Foundation.

"Do Good as You Go is a network that connects individuals that are traveling and volunteering to quality small to mid-sized organizations making significant, positive impact on their local community.

The objective is to fulfill the needs of the organizations as well as leverage the unique skill set of the travelers.

By lowering the barriers to high quality, meaningful volunteer opportunities we look to encourage people traveling for all different reasons to Do Good as they Go.

By working closely with the directors of our partner organizations we work to develop relationships and programs that are sustainable and provide a deep local impact."

See below for a short slide show on how this works.

You can support Do Good as You Go by getting raffle tickets for our Saturday evening charity raffle.

Thanks for your support.

Join the Volunteer Crew

From welcoming travellers at the gate, to taking care of the campsite and making sure all the presentations run smoothly, the success of every HU event relies on the enthusiasm of its volunteer crew.

"It was my absolute pleasure to be able to give something back to the HU community and working with such great folks really made the event special."

New to Horizons Unlimited?

Horizons Unlimited was founded in 1997 by Grant and Susan Johnson following their journey around the world on a BMW R80 G/S motorcycle. The website, HUBB forum and regular events across the globe have inspired thousands of people to follow their dreams and take the road less travelled.

Membership - Show you're proud to be a Horizons Unlimited Traveller!

Horizons Unlimited is not a big multi-national company, just two people who love overland adventure travel and have grown what started as a hobby in 1997 into a full time job (usually 8-10 hours per day and 7 days a week) and a labour of love. To keep it going and a roof over our heads, we run events such as this one (18 this year!); we sell inspirational and informative DVDs; we have a few selected advertisers; and we make a small amount from memberships.

You don't have to be a Member to come to an HU meeting, access the website, the HUBB or to receive the e-zine. What you get for your membership contribution is our sincere gratitude, good karma and knowing that you're helping to keep the motorcycle travel dream alive. Contributing Members and Gold Members do get additional features on the HUBB. Here's a list of all the Member benefits on the HUBB.

You can join at a reduced rate as part of your meeting registration. Note that new Memberships with your Meeting Registration are applied as of the Meeting date or as soon as possible thereafter, not earlier, unless you make a special request in the Comments box when you register.
