    Bimble ride on the Saturday

    Once again Andrew and I will pick our brains to come up with an interesting bimble ride for the collective.
    Last year was wet and the views were a bit rubbish because of it, so hopefully the weather will be kind this year and allow us to soak up gods country in full technicolour
    Please ensure you have a full tank of petrol at the start of the day!!!

    Lunch will consist of copious calories, so if you are dieting please bring you own Rivitas

    Ride Out

    Yo Fil,

    I'm hoping to be bringing my 1200 (for a change) This being the case I'll happily back mark one of the rides. Much quicker than the sidecar I'm sure you'll agree

    Val H for doing the last two rideouts on the sidecar. Your decision to do this years run on your 1200 is a Top New Years Resolution .

    As Flipfly originally posted Rideout formula as previous years,two groups.May need three if enough interest.
    Have put a few roads together and once discussed and finalised with Phil anyone offering to help out do come over and ride the route through.


    Have had a few bimbles around Staffordshire and the Peak District looking for some inspiration for this years STD3 rideout. The last 2 years routes were grand but rain stopped us enjoying the stunning views from the high level routes last year.
    This year have pulled in a few old favourites and added some new roads.
    Thought about Holmfirth as a Lunch stop (still open to this) gets a bit busy for parking lots of bikes. Have found a little café that will accommodate us all in two groups. Plenty of alternate coffee and ice cream venues.
    It’s a Bimble , there are opportunities for folk who want to ride making good progress, couple of very open roads of several miles for the enthusiastic rider.

    Anyone happy to be TEC make it known. Keith you are reprieved as you helped out last year.
    Will use drop off if big group otherwise as last year.
    Julie might oblige as TEC but she does like to take lots of photos
    You may recognise a few of the places , all subject to change as the route is under review,so many good roads so little time.
    Having words with the weather gods.


    Some crap winter photos

    and (after pics to follow)
