    Bottom barn tomorrow afternoon for tea and scowwns. It's going to be a glorious sunny day, therfore piss pot and tee shirt protective
    clothing is the order of the day. Will ride over Belmont and back before settling down at the barn. What's not to like.
    Some people are more violently opposed to fur than leather,
    because it's safer to harass rich women than motorcycle gangs.

    Rivington (bottom) Barn, Rivington Ln, BL6 7SB Horwich, which is at the bottom of Winter Hill.

    Will be getting there about 1.30/2.00.

    Best route is the one brut33 mentions, over the tops from Belmont
    Paul
    '00 R1150GS "Adv/Supermoto"
    '95 Honda CRM250 Mk3

    If it's not thrashing the fastest two wheeled machinery known to man, down country lanes lined with stone walls, sometimes in thick fog & driving rain, it's not proper racing - Thank goodness for the TT.....

    Well, was it worth the visit?
    Only been there once on a bank holiday and it was closed at the top.

    Two dozen attendees at the most. Chewed tha fat for a while with some of the regulars.
    There's always an eclectic mix of bikes and characters despite the low numbers.
    IMHO it's better than the Sunday meet at the top barn where hundreds of bikes is turn up.
    It has more of a club/friendly feel about it. No bullshitters.
