    Pre trip meeting 29th December 2011

    I've e-mailed everyone reference a pre trip meeting but just in case you don't get it, here are the details:

    All

    I’ve arranged a good meeting point for a pre trip meeting which is fairly central for the majority of folk. Trying to organise a meeting point is fraught with difficulties as it won’t be good for everyone I realise one or two of you may not be able to make it so if you cannot make this one, I will have another meeting early in 2012. Here are the details for this meeting:

    Date: Thursday 29th December 2011

    Venue: Adventure Bike Warehouse,
    Unit 5, Agecroft Enterprise Park
    Shearer Way
    Swinton
    Manchester
    M27 8WA

    Time: 2.00 pm

    I thought that this may be a good time as that dead time between Christmas and New year can be a nightmare and it’s a good excuse to get out.

    We will discuss all the details of the trip, what you can expect, shipping dates etc and more importantly meet each other before the start of the trip so at least you’ll know who you are riding with!! I’ll also be able to answer any questions you may have. Also, Jono at ABW can advise you on correct bike preparation and maybe it’s a good opportunity to spend some of your Christmas money on some goodies.

    For those of you I have sent this too who are undecided as whether you can go or not, it may be a good opportunity to attend and see what this fantastic trip is all about.

    There is a Premier Lodge hotel just round the corner so you can stay over, have a beer and something to eat if you want to but you will have to let me know in good time.

    Please let me know if you are able to attend this meeting.


    As I said above, if you are thinking of coming, you will be more than welcome to join us and see what this fantastic adventure is all about

    Chris, Is the Premier Inn here - East Lancs Road, Swinton, Manchester M27 0AA? And are you doing a block booking or do interested individuals sort themselves out?

    The hotel up the road is called the Henry Boddington which is the Premier Inn, Swinton.http://www.premierinn.com/en/hotel/M...hester-swinton

    Despite pleading with the manager, the best rate per room is £62 but they are twin rooms so sharing is the way forward Might as well get used to it at that's what we will be doing for a month next year

    I have book one already so happy to share with whoever

    Interestingly the one in East Lancs Road is £47 for the night - though it has no restaurant.
    Having said that breakfast isn't included in the price any-case.

    Can I come along? I'd like to learn something, and get out for a bit.

    Is there food or shall I bring something?
