Perhaps you could meet up at the lunch stop? You'll have to ask Alun where that will be (last yr that was Bourton on the Water which is a pleasant stop even if we're not there). Plus there's plenty of farmland to play on at the site :)

If you see a big fat bloke on a black tenere looking like 'billy no mates' please take pitty and come say hi.

I'll be around from mid afternoon, also a relatively fat bloke ;-) Black Toyota Avensis Estate, will be pitching a gazebo by the look of the weather forecast.

Although the rideouts will not be back until late afternoon there will be someone at the campsite to meet and greet.

Also the catering van will be in operation all day.

See you there.

HI,

if the forecast is right then and it's that heavy on the morning i'll delay and come up first thing Sunday.

Being wet is fine but being cold and wet in a field all day without a tent isn't my kind of fun. I've done my time riding riding in sodden leathers going somewhere because i was 'hard' and it 'didn't bother me'.

Now i like things a bit more refined.

See you there..hopefully.

There will be a large marquee in the field so plenty of shelter should it rain :dry:

It's only water and there will be a big fire going to dry you out :whistle:

The local forecast is for light showers on the Saturday morning and temps of 24/5.

There's also a big waterproof marquee going up on site Friday morning.

Pretty certain Alun has arranged a BIG TOP (marquee) as a shelter for all :whistle:

I´ll be there late morning Sat come rain or shine... with the beige beemer (which is up for sale). See: http://www.adventurebikerider.com/forum ... -1200.html

I really need a break. Shame it is only for 24 hours!

Looking forward to it.
