Honestly, its goin to be easy and steady, if you aint done it before it should be an ideal time to try, it should be a lot drier and a lot warmer than B/Day, plus you can have a party at lumb farm, after, but only if you have been good boys and girls:beer: :beer: :beer: :beer: :beer: :beer: :beer: :beer: :beer: :beerjug: :beerjug: :beerjug: :beerjug: :beerjug: :beerjug: :beerjug: :beerjug: :beerjug: :beerjug:

Right then boys n girls, if your all sitting comfortably then i,ll begin. My good self and Mick put our trusty "old fart" steeds on the very route that is intended for this nice n easy off road for the east mids doo, this Wednesday afternoon and i must say thanx Mick for sortin the route:thumb2 (this bloke knows some nice places).

The run should last about 4 to 5 hours and will take in some of Derbyshires finest scenery, there are about 6 or 7 good safe trails, mostly stone and hard packed sand, I did the trip on Anakee tyres, with no problems at all, (it may not be so on a couple of trails if its wet) there are on all trails alternative road routes, at the end of the run you will have a chance to do a couple of slightly more challenging trails the choice is yours, also, the run will finish about 4 miles from Matlock Bath:cool: for those who want it.

In all honesty if you aint done it before nows the time, there will be loads of advice and tips from Mick and no one will get left behind, we will be using second man drop off (simple once you,ve done it).

Any way thats enough for now look forward to seein ya all there:thumb2

Steve


PS Run kicks of at 9.45 for a 10.00 start, be there or be square:rolleyes:

Sounds great. I grew up in a little place called Belper just near Lumb Farm. I now live over in Dublin but ever since getting the bike I've longed to do the trails I did there on mountain bike 10 years ago, on my trusty (motorised) steed. Wish you luck, sorry I can't make it.

Mmm, according to a local expert there are only four lanes in Derbyshire that are relatively GS-able. :augie

But who defines relatively? I think there is only one way to find out... :D

I am not staying over, but can I come on the off road ride please.

Have a gig on Saturday night with the band :blast

May stop on Friday Night but this will mean I'll be carrying my tent etc for the ride.

Thanks in advance :thumb2

Have now committed and booked so add me to the list please.

I rode an NSU Quickly off-road through the woods when I was 14 (and 84lbs not 92Kg) so I'm sure that I'll have nae bother with my GS1150 on Tourances:jes.

After all, I've ridden this one for 34,000 miles (nearly all on road):D

How could I possibly make an :peach: of it:D:D
