hulme end 2017
« on: March 23, 2017, 01:55:18 am »
i know august is a long time off and we havent even got scotland out of the way yet but, after having a conversation with martin who unfortunatly has missed the last 2 meet's i thought i would post the usual dates up to gauge interest.
so normal dates are august 25 and 26th, thats friday and saturday, return home sunday.

cheers

Thanks for that Pete, if the "Kilt Wearers" are coming south en masse again then I'd better make sure I'm there to level the odds. Count me in deffo.

I contacted the manifold inn .Hulme end on Thursday , then there was 5 room free for our weekend so any one not wanting to camp are advised to book early as rooms go fast.
look forward to seeing all of you again, as im still buzzing after the Scottish run out, it was a blast and great company.

Booking the FF in for an MOT tomorrow ready for Hulme End ( Derbyshire ) on the 25th 26th 27th August. In case you've not heard about this event ( open invite to club members )  its behind the Manifold Pub at Hulme End. Most will be camping whilst the wimps have booked rooms in the pub. Derbyshire is superb for bike riding and the Manifold is superb for drinking. What more could you want ?

hi martin,

yes hulme end is getting closer, i know last year we headed out to the ponderosa bikers cafe in wales for the saturday ride which was great, this year however, if no one has any objections it may be an idea to explore more of derbyshire/yorkshire area.
Ive been heading down to matlock most sundays over the last couple of months, checking out the roads and trying to form a route for the vf do, i have most of the out lap sorted, needs a few tweeks to avoid a couple of freshly resurfaced roads, and unfortunatly the Via Gelia is still closed half way down, which is a bit disapointing as that road is awsome, the detour round it aint that bad though,
so hopefully see you all there  ;D

Wow, preparations are being made !!!!!!   These must be your "practice laps" Pete ?
You and I have no chance Pete against the loony haggis eaters when it comes to knees ( elbows ?) down riding. I'm packing my pipe and slippers in the tank bag plus a good book.
Not long now.

Best catch a few of them Graham,you know what kind of appetites us loony,wimpy kilt wearing haggis eaters have.
Just as well that we are also amiable and thick skinned.
Looking forward to seeing everyone that can make it this year
Regards Bif

Bill, you know of course that you're alright as long as they're taking the p...s out of you. You only need to worry when they start being nice !!   James the 1st ( 6th )  told be that and he got it from his mum.    ;D
