  1. Meet Ups / Rideouts
    I added this onto the "Regional meet - North West England a few days ago but I'm not sure if anyone has seen it or if they have and they think it's a rubbish idea so I've started a separate thread... Anyone fancy a ride to the North Manchester bike show on the 30th of Sept? possibly meet...
  2. National Meets
    Would we like one? Looking at hiring, reasoning is that lots of folk are happy to erect a borrowed one, but when it comes to Sunday, most folk have there own tent to take down and a fair distance to travel to home. Not strictly necessary (unless it rains, which it probably will if we don't get...

    Dear XRV TLD Riders We need to start putting a ride together soon as we already have about 20 riders who have registered an interest whatever it is, and as this is Ride 5, want it to be the best yet. After a weekend of discussions in the TLD Board Room, this what we are proposing. We hope you...
  8. The Longest Day
    Hi all - this thread will contain information about where we are up to with the organisation of TLD 2011. Feedback from last years ride suggested riders found it too difficult to find the information they were after. As a result there is this thread which will contain bullet point factual...

    ok, so it IS a box of frogs...:angel9: 12h00 was the rendez vous, for the ride to paris. As usual with the french, the organisation was crap. They'd planned for about 20 bikes from the region & we were 45 just from Auxerre (yeah the sun was out!). A meeting point on the autoroute was...

    Has anyone checked that we can still get vehicle access to the Castle esplanade these days? The Castle is still a working army barracks and the esplanade used to be the car park for castle visitors but something is nagging at the back of my mind that makes me think for security reasons it is...

  20. The Longest Day
    I can’t wait for TLD 2009 to start, what an excellent thing it is. Getting a load of Bikers (Capital B on Bikers because we are the chosen few) to do what they love, ride their bikes and at the same time do something memorable and raise money for charity. Simple and very commendable, whoever it...
