YOC Meet 22


Recommended Posts

Right,

I'm going to stick my head up above the parapet and ask who's up for it?

Would be nice to get some dates and destinations decided. Could also extend it onto Facebook if people approve, get the numbers up.

Ok as the bloody covid is at last coming to a conclusion we should start thinking about a meet, where and when? Can be nice and warm in April if you want to go early in the year or wait till June- July if that makes it easier for everyone! Down in the west country is usually warmer than anywhere in the UK, Devon or Cornwall would be great I suppose and the roads are tiny and Exmoor can be interesting or out to Lands end if you fancy a windy morning. Lots of camp sites and small pubs and even a hotel or two :) . Just sayin!

May is pretty much out for me.

July could be good?

I agree with slice, have always wanted to ride the Atlantic highway myself, all the way down. The roads from Barnstaple down are ace. Mervin is somewhere near Bude (on the Atlantic highway) im sure he could find some cheeky camping spots for us.

As for time, after the last year or two i could happily do 2 or 3 runs this year.

couple of running and cycling races coming up.

 

If you guys make a date and location i'll do my best to get there. I'm great with Devon, used to live there, some great biking roads.

Hi, All,

I'd be up for a potter out. The only drawback I have is being a troglodyte in the tourist industry means that I need plenty of notice to try to get a weekend off, especially during the high season.

 Apart from that - I'm game...

Cheers

Red

Well i have holiday to use and a bike that needs using, what about an early bird in April. From me bude is 268 miles, (done it once or twice) by motorway/dc and avoiding that would add a chunk on so 300 as a guess. Lands end would be another 70 or so. If that's picked as a specific end point so its a good trip. 

If doing the Atlantic highway is the aim maybe camp somewhere like Barnstaple so we can all hook up, then go for the lizzard or Lands End, whatever, hell do both. Back to Barnstaple for the evening then home. That would prob give most of us around 200 miles a day which with plenty of fag/coffee and subsequent pee🥵 stops is plenty doable.

 

Opinions?

Well I'm out. 'No surprise there' a few of the regulars will think. But.....this year I have the perfect, if totally unwanted, excuse. Back in early December I ended up contracting a rare brain infection, autoimmune encephalitis which resulted in me taking a full seizure and spending Xmas in hospital, and I'm going back in this Monday because my treatment plan is not as effective as the Drs hoped it would be.

Anyway long story boring, I've had to surrender my licence and the neurologist said he won't support a return for at least 9 months. I've also had to stick in for IHR at work as he won't support a return there either.

Positive being he believes a good recovery will happen  so not all doom and gloom.

Happy to keep involved with the forum  so keep this about the 22 meet.

Hell's teeth Jimmy kept that to yourself mate! So a year off the road it is but you will be back. We can all wait so you can catch up with us, we will have to take lot's of photo's so you can pretend your there. Just think you can now strip the bike down and spend lot's of cash on new mod's. Just tell everyone you have been banned for a year! That should make a few eye's bulge. If we can do anything just ask. Take care and get well soon mate.

Sorry to hear that Jim 😔

As slice says, you'll have to love vicariously through us for a bit!

April could work for me, I'll check the dates with work first though

I like you're staying positive.
