In the next month or so we need to decide where we will stage our 'big' meet


Edit: Have changed the date for this meet to 10th & 11th July


LGF and I discussed the Alconbury Midnight Growler meet which was aborted as a winter meet due to that part of the world being mostly under water at this time of year. Hows about a mid-summer ride start in the early evening and ride until sunset. Alconbury is more or less the geographical centre of our regions. LGF says there are goods routes around the area. Just an idea, you may have others.

Please discuss ...

I had a similar thought, ride 'til sunset then BBQ. Possibly camp out?

Probably not a good idea Dan, it's the w/e after mayhem. I would imagine a fair few of use would have trouble commiting to 2 w/e's in a row away.

Commiting to a 'camp out' is not all that easy with having 2 kids plus baby (well, toddler).

Just a day would be better for me.....but I dont want to ruin the majority.

As I said on the Brigg thread, I can host a Lincoln meet. I have 2 big loops on my doorstep, 1 of which can be split into 3 distances.

So, if you wanted to do a 3 hour ride, back to mine for lunch (or BBQ) then do either a 1 or 2 hour ride thereafter that could work??

is there a camp site near you? i think it would be a great idea, especially for those coming from east anglia/south lincs. i love the idea of it but might not be able to camp but stilol, nothing stopping those that want to from doing so.

your back yard is pretty big pickle! :shock:

bet the neighbours would love that !!
