Its been a couple of years that this was last done and a great ride. so as we now have a lot of new people here is the plan. get on your bike Friday morning. Meet at stanstead services near the entrance to the main part. leaving time 7am. ride to Whitby via scenic route. go out for fish and chips in Whitby or the pub on site at beacon farm. it does a good dinner with new owners. breakfast is £4.50 full English. Saturday we ride to st bees. fantastic scenery a boat trip over lake Windermere. then ride on to and over hard knots pass to seacote holiday park.( hang on my washing has stopped I will be back.) right where was I? next day homebound I avoid motorways. but I will take you to it and we will have a food fuel pit stop and if you want to go the quick way for whatever reason. that's not a problem. this ride is suitable for anybody that can ride a bike. so if Geoff Preston can. you can. don't worry about any observers on this trip they will all have excuses. tons of fun and no pressure. its camping at both ends BUT if you want to book something else that's fine. okay small print time. you book it both ends. its very cheap. something your remember forever. ride safe.

Okay as most people are in b&b I think it's safe to say dinner will be in Whitby that evening and not on camp site. Just trying to think who is going. So if you see this please add your name. Or I won't know if somebody is missing before we leave. Spider. Ian Taylor. Speedo. Jacques. Mark, Tony, all booked who else?

Can I turn up at the last minute? I can't predict my work too far in advance at the moment.

No problem Steve. Will you be camping or b&b. If b&b it's getting hard to find rooms.

Dear Spider,

God knows why, considering the drama we endured on the last trip (torrential downpours, wet and windy campsites, someone from another group joining us and then slowing us down, crawling through Richmond Yorks. because we'd run in to traffic from a county fair, a bike being dropped on the pass etc) but I think I might go again!! After all, it was an adventure and we all got home in one piece.

As I'll be camping, I assume I don't need to book, just turn up and pay when we get there?

Ian

Ian my favorite headmaster. How the devil are you old chap? That's great news. See your not getting old. This time there is only people from the clubs in chelmsford and people I have rode with. It's up to you to do your booking. Last time we just found and paid on the spot at Whitby. At St bees I paid in advanced. You decide how to do it big boy. See you soon spider :D

Due to my back problem I have booked bed and breakfast both ends. I have asked who's camping as there is no reply I am not sure so I will leave it up to you we will find out on Friday morning just before 7 a.m. when we leave
