ABR Ireland 2015 Sign Up Thread

Post by Heff » Sat Feb 07, 2015 4:11 pm

IThe 2015 ABR Ireland Rally will be held over the weekend of Friday 29th May.

Our venue this year will be the Shepherds Rest, near Draperstown. This is an excellent location, very biker friendly with very good facilities, washrooms, showers etc, and most importantly a bar on site.

From Dublin the distance is around 125 miles / 2hrs 15min
From Belfast the distance is around 50 miles / 1hr

Full details here www.shepherdsrestpub.com

Heres the view from a drone. The campsite is directly behind the pub, you'll see the path running up to a small cottage type building with a patio area,thats where we will be based.

Camping will be £6 pppn, and will be collected on site by the host. A breakfast menu may be available if the demand is there.

For those wishing to B&B, there is no option on site this time round, but Flintlock has been in contact with a hostel type place that offers a bed only but no breakfast but it's 5 miles away. Details here www.kilcronaghan.co.uk

The campsite may have some 'Camping Pods' installed on site,later in the year, but it is not clear at this time if they will be available for our rally.

There will be only one planned ride out and this will be on Saturday around the Sperrins Mountains. It will include some rough single track tarmac which is in a poor condition and can be done on road tyres. Feel free to explore the surrounding area if this is not for you. There is no off road option.


Programme

Friday 29th Meet and Greet

(See Flintlocks post on p2 of this thread for more details)
