Well I'm a weekender, we starting Friday night (full weekend?) or is it just the Saturday night ?



As for Rosedale people there is also the Caravan Club site opposite a pub (and next door to the other site)
http://www.caravanclub.co.uk/caravanclu ... csid=21993
(which used to be the overflow site for the other caravan/camping site.)

Also hoping to make a weekend of it, or at least stay over on the Saturday night.

There is some fantastic riding around Rosedale and Blakey Ridge. Looking forward to seeing exactly what route Vern and Marc have in store for everyone.
I'm sure it'll be a cracker!
