    Back for the rugby rideout

    Saturday morning:

    So, "Loomies" is apparently a "biker" meeting place www.loomies.co.uk and a mere handful of scenic miles from the 'raost.

    Ride there, have a breakfast or whatever, check out the bikes and stuff... and ride back to watch the rugby and have a small Babycham?

    Not challenging nor meant to be, just a chance to line your stomach for the aftrenoon/evenings' "festivities" and maybe go somewhere you've not been before.

    Meet about 10:00 at a place onsite at the rugby club, to be decided?

    This is the route recommended by Bakes:

    Sounds great but according to my mapsource using your route 'loomies' has moved a long way from the Meon Valley where it used to be

    It will still be a nice ride out though, but its a bit further than 12 miles I think

    Alton

    I was only suggesting someone local took the lead after Loomies as I live a mere 300 miles away and am not intimate with the preferred roads in this area..



    This is why I stopped organising stuff.

    Okay: I do Bake's route as far as it goes, I tell the sat-nag to take me to Loomies. I have whatever passes for the full English in Hampshire, look at bikes, possibly natter a bit and then instruct sat-nag to take me back to the campsite and after freshening-up, I watch the rugby with alcoholic refreshment.

    A 60 mile round trip isn't so difficult.

    Anyone who cares to join me would be most welcome.

    You may wear what you like.

    You may illuminate your motorcycle to whatever level of lumens you fell you need to.

    Anything I missed?

    Chris,

    Why mislead the good folk. You know fine well you'll never get on your bike - too busy reccying the pubs
    We should learn from the weather. It pays no attention to criticism. [/I]

    That's not fair: Only if there's > 5% chance of rain...

    Can you pencil me in please CK.

    Its currently a toss up between this one and Steptoes easy lanes (cut short to get back to the rugby at 2pm) but I must admit Loomies "Healthy breakfast" ie a full English breakfast with bacon, egg, sausages, beans etc but with "the fat cut off the bacon" does appeal to me.
