U.K. Mini Meet 14-16 April 2023

A small but perfectly formed MINI MEET in the heart of Derbyshire.

The Miners Standard
Bank Top
Winster
Matlock
Derbyshire
DE4 2DR
14-16 April 2023

There’s no entrance fee.. that’s the good bit… but there’s also nothing organised!
This is a small friendly meeting designed to meet folks and get talking! Everyone is welcome be it caravan/RV or tent. There is no function room but we can use the restaurant outside meal times. I have provisionally made a dinner booking for all of us on Saturday night at 7.00pm.

Winster is an old mining village and worth a walk around, and of course it’s set in the wonderful Peak District. There’s shops and pubs in walking distance.

The pub is open all day. Good food available. Camping is behind the pub. It’s £7.00 per person payable at the bar on arrival. It doesn’t matter if you’re in a motor home or tent all are welcome and it’s still £7.00 per person. There is no electric available in the campsite. Showers and toilets are open 24 hours. There is a £1.00 charge for the showers.
I shall be there from the Friday till Sunday morning rain or shine. I expect most to show up during Saturday either for the day or night and hopefully dinner!

Please help spread the word, I know it’s short notice…..

Hope you can come!

I will pop along but only as a day visitor - I live about 15 miles away so will have to come up with a nice route to let the engine get properly warmed up.

New to Horizons Unlimited?

New to motorcycle travelling? New to the HU site? Confused? Too many options? It's really very simple - just 4 easy steps!

Horizons Unlimited was founded in 1997 by Grant and Susan Johnson following their journey around the world on a BMW R80G/S.

Membership - help keep us going!

Horizons Unlimited is not a big multi-national company, just two people who love motorcycle 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 all over the world with the help of volunteers; 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, or ask questions on the HUBB. 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.
