Confirmation of camping has now been made. I have asked for 35-50 places and we will have exclusive use of the bottom field- a lovely spot next to edge of Newtondale with shelter provided by oak trees. Cost will be just £5 per person. Owners have cofirmed we have use of the Village Hall to store bikes in whilst we are away- although there is not really any need for any secure storage; I have used this campsite for 15 years and it has always been a safe place. The only concern the owner has is feeding us all so will will have to eat in two seperate sittings- its only a small pub and there is simply not enough seating. We have been assured of a very warm Yorkshire welcome from the Landlord Simon and they will do everything possible to make our stay a pleasant one. They will also be ordering in extra beer :lol: :lol:

I will call a NE&Yorks meet next month to go down and try out a few route alterations and get everything tied up regarding the events that we plan. I will also run a poll to decide the Sunday plans- another local loop or a lap of Dalby's excellent Red Route.

Don't forget to have a rumage through your sheds for the bike Jumble- turn those unused parts into beer tokens!!

All we need now is some fine weather. The local trails are excellent and the event should be a great success.

Thanks for your support so far guys.

Cheers
Si

Small world! You might know Andy and Nathan then- they were a pair of Stoners that used to drive around in odd ball cars- Vauxhall Royale, Vauxhall Firenza Droopsnoot, Fiat 126, Alfa's, old VW buses etc. Great bunch of lads but lost touch when I moved to the North East.
They used to cycle around Ireland every summer on shonky old 12 speed racers with broken gears and no brakes and use the camper as a base. As soon as the got back over here they would sabotage the camper and call the RAC as they had spent all their money on Guiness :lol:

Say hi if you know them.
