Always wanted to go but it was a case of "i don't have any money left" because i was out of work for so long. Started recently but thought it would be sold out by now, are there still tickets available?

Would love to go but it's the wrong time of year - just before kids go back to school it's a hectic weekend. :(

I'm all signed up Neil, and as such, none of the options on your poll are applicable. I'd love to be able to give some feedback but apart from not having any time or money you haven't given me any options.

I am however looking forward to the treasure hunt, anti-fashion show and the bike polo demonstration...

i think i'm right in saying the event is in very north wales, the "marin trail" at betws-y coed, what i would say to anyone who is thinking of going is DO IT! :D we had such a laugh last year (FYI at the mo, i am the 1 vote for "went last year" etc) upon arrival at the campsite after a night on the lash in amsterdam, we went for an evening ride as a group and then had munchies and beer upon return to the campsite. the next day we had music and a "race" of sorts around a quite long circuit, it was timetrial style so we didn't go off as a bunch, there was points deducted for bike parts that were too modern! like rapid fire shifters etc!! :lol: we then hit the beer and food again followed by another day of riding.

having looked at the price of the event this year i personally think it is good value for money as i quite often venture into wales and pay approx 50 quid a night at a b+b so for the price of £130 all in for 3 nights accomodation (i'm gonna pay the extra 20 quid for a 3rd night, full entry and 2 nights is £110) and entry and including a t shirt i think is good, and this year i only have to pay diesel and not another £120(?) for a ferry crossing to holland!

i am expecting that this year will naturally be more british oreintated as a result of being in wales but last year it was fantastic to meet some of the members from overseas and i hope some of them make the trip :D

the bikes on display were awsome, and for those who went to mayhem i would say the vibe is very similar but more private if that makes sense.

have i convinced you yet?!! :D :D
