Massive thankyou to everyone who came and showed, drank shandy, rode bikes and had right good giggle. Not as big a turnout as we’d like overall, I think around 40 visitors but the atmosphere was very chilled in the heat. The racing fast and fun, the bikes on display were ace, I ended up going home with an extra one but ssshhhh, don’t tell mrs longun haha

I’ll add pics as I can

Ta and I am planning another later in the year :)

Awesome Event!!


From the start of my day, it was a welcome change and, a relief that i could load the car with the sun on my back and knowing that it was only going to get warmer.
Just a little over an hours' drive and i arrived in the general area of scunthorpe.

The postcode for the satnav was pretty much on the button and i turned down into a short stony track to the camping area. you couldn't get lost.

The potential for a grander event is very real. There is acres of room here and secluded enough to feel like a proper venue for this kind of thing.
The morning atmosphere was all very chilled, i suspect a few jars of mead was consumed the night before. Nothing a sizzling sausage butty wouldn't sort out.

I needed enough room for a lightweight 3 x 3m shelter to set up my things and got conveniently parked right beside it too.

It didn't take long for campers to approach and extend their kindness by way of food and beverage. Namely gerrard and family, a thousand thanks to them!
Also a sausage sarnie from spudly was most welcome, cheers fella!

The whole event was organised very well and flowed with demand nicely. Thanks to our chris longun' and the guys at KORC, i failed to shake all hands but i quickly picked up who was who. Central scunny is a few miles away for fuel and supermarche's for all you need.

Hope to see you all again.

some notes from the day.....

Officially the hardest dog in the world. "is that all you can do"?

Lucky number 8.

Guys riding their bikes.

Other old bikes spotted.

Many thanks Chris and gang for organising.

I could only make the one day (Sunday) but weather and trail conditions were excellent.
No big hills or downs, but just miles of windy singletrack around the old quarry and woods...ie. ideal terrain for unfit old blokes to muck about on old bikes.

Safe and secure private location, camping and family friendly.
Good to have some young local riders and their parents around, too. Marvelling at how far things have come, and that bikes which are older than them are still rideable.

All the best,
