(I'm not really sure which area groups claim rights to that area as I know Derbyshire is East Midlands, Kinder Scout being their peak iirc, but our definitions can be a bit oddball, so would it be NW ?)
We are not restricted to riding in our own area Ben. An AECs job is to put on rides for the members of his given area. It matters not where the rides are as long as they cater for the area members. Sherwood isn't in our area yet it has a place on the calendar and will be organized by Chris for example.
Late April has been the Three Tribes for the last few years which has involved NE&Yorks, NWA and E.Mids why not get all three involved. We have April marked down as 3 Tribes (in a different location) on the provisional calendar, so I guess it could work. Its been a popular event but as DSP said a few pages back it could do with freshening up of the routes.
The Mass Trespass started from two starting points and the Manchester and Sheffield ramblers met up on Kinder. A similar concept to the previous Peaks rides. It all ties in quite nicely.
Ultimately its for our AECs to decide and organize. This thread is just to throw some ideas out there and let them sift through and see if anything is worthy of inclusion. Keep the ideas and suggestions coming, it will be a great help to them in planning our rides for the following year.
