Just seeing if anyone would be interested in a meet in the Yorkshire Dale's ?

The last one we had back on November 2009 was a tad wet,but I'm sure everyone had fun


here...http://www.horizonsunlimited.com/hub...orkshire-44817

we are do it ,but this time we will do it before we put the clock's back .

we have 2 area's in mind one has a bunk houes,so you only need to bring a sleeping bag.
There is a drying room just in case the weather is wet, a kitchen ,and the pub is only 100 yards away

for thoes that still want to camp there is room for a few tent's.

The cost is only a few pound's but I will get the correct price soon.

the other site will be camping only ,and also only a few minutes from the first trail of the day. both site's have food and Wc's

We can once again do a B road ride out. A ride out on easy lanes and a harder trail ride for those hardcore rider's !!!.

So ...anyone interested

Dazzer



Craig ,Nick and I have been out today scouting for a new site to use.

we hope to here from one place in the next few day's.

This would be perfect to use, but if they can't do it we will go to the other site.

Both site's we have in mind are only a few minute's ride from the trail's we will be riding


Dates...1st 2nd 3rd of October

We were thinking of early October.
{ sorry Ted ,but you will be in the Sunshine by then }

That will give everyone plenty of time to free up the weekend and it's also before the clock's go back which will give us a but more day light.

I would like to thank everyone that braved the very wet weather on Friday to get to this meeting.

The rain stopped around 6pm on friday evening ,

once everyone had their tent's up it was off to the Pub for a few pint's


Waking on saturday morning to clear sky and mist in the Valley was a good sign.

The 3 group's were all ready to leave just after 8am.

Basils group were the first on the the lanes. while Dazzers groupe along with craig and nicks group rode a few miles down the Valley to Burnsal for a Full english breakfast.

My group left Burnsal just after 9am to start our long days riding.

we would be the first to come to the river crossings ,which after all the rain we had had in the last 24 hours would be running high.

lucky for us we had dazco in our group who came forward to volunteer to test how deep the crossing would be...

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=noFRh1KexeA

we found the first few hours hard going on the narrow slippy lanes.
By 10am the sun was out.

We called in to Masham for lunch before we took on Red Lane.

on our way over Kidstones we came across 3 KTM riders one of which had had a bad fall and required medical help and the hellicopter was on it's way.
I waited till that arrived then rode on to catch the rest of our group up.

Deb's and Ian were behind us on their bmw outfit, which worked out well,as Debs offered to ride the injured riders KTM to our campsite so that it could be collected later in the evening.

Thankfully all our riders returned in one piece .

later that night in the Pub as more beer was consumed the river crossing got deeper and the slow speed off's became high speed crashes


The owner of the campsite would only take £2 per night for the camping so on saturday night the rest of the money along with the £20 the KTM rides left for the helpers to have a drink with were all put in the Air Ambulance Collection box.

I was in my sleeping bag at 10pm { Iam getting old you know } I did hear that crusty was still partying till 5am


Hope everone had a great time and thank you all once again.

photo will be posted soon. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CcXrd-OaI0E
