    Not really

    We were trail riding up there last weekend, both days & all was ok

    Maybe a weekday thing for resurfacing

    My route is similar to last year, so you might want to go with Fran

    All road with a bit of gravel in places, one small ford. Lots of sheep, rabbits, pheasants, the odd squirrel and an occasional hare.
    A small ford? O-oh.

    I will post as soon as I know.
    So, Saturday.
    I will once again be assisted by my mate Andy as tail end sweeper.
    The plan is for a longish ride of close on 200 miles.
    The route is very similar to last year with a few changes, including a bit more GS friendly off road.
    The tarmac sections vary from flat out fast and twisty to bumpy single track.
    We will once again travel far and wide into the wilds of the north of England.
    Because of the distance we need to be away as close to 9.30 am as possible.
    You most likely will be back at the campsite by around 6pm. Depending on how many coffee stops.
    We will be stopping for lunch in Hexham and coffee somewhere else enroute.
    Please try and have half a tank of fuel before the off.
    As last year all the off road can be avoided, but it is all novice friendly and if dry, road tyres will be ok.
    Be aware your pride and joy will get muddy making you look well knarly when you get back.
    You will pass through, Yorkshire, Lancashire, Teasdale, Weardale, Cumbria and Nothumberland.
    Andy and I will be at the campsite at about 9am, me on triple black gsa, Andy on an yellow 1150 gs.
    I will put a sign on my bike so you can find us.
    Andy and I don't use a complicated drop off system, all we ask is that when we take a turning is that you make sure
    that the person behind you has seen you, this may mean that you have to wait a few seconds until they do.
    Sunday, if it happens, will be shorter and just made up as I go along on the less travelled roads of the area.
    Paul and Andy.
    Couple of changes, Offroad still on but reduced, wet limestone and big bikes are not a good combination. Still some though.
    Andy can no longer make it as he became a Grandad earlier this morning.
    I can also now do a Sunday ride as got a last minuite swap at work. Or I will happily tail end for someone else.
    Paul.
