damn sundays best for me as well  Sad 


One of those things mate. If the Sunday is better for most then take the Sunday. I would have liked to get over there, but there is still time so maybe later in the year. If I get a weekend free!?!!!

I'm due to take the little one out on the bike again, so that Saturday could work out for me in that regard   thumbs    thumbs

usually takes us about 3 hours to get to Bowness and your an hour further south than us and Hartside is even further north than that. the only way you could do it imo is a LOOOOONG slog up the M6.

Personally Dave I'd be tempted to look somewhere like Middleton in Teesdale or Alston, go up the A1/A66 as far as Barnard Castle and cut off onto the moor roads. Correct me if I'm wrong, but were you going up the motorway to Penrith?

will do if I can get thru all the work I have in this week so I will get in touch at the end of the week.
that's one hell of a days riding dave if you plan on coming up on the day you will be well knackered riding home m8 might be better to play it safe and do the guest house thing.

I can't do the Sunday 29th   Sad 

Should be a good run out for everyone   thumbs   Ride safe, enjoy and I'll look forward to the pics. If not before, I'll see everyone in July so not too long   thumbs

right then back to me coming up on my own  moped 

We don't have much spare space Dave but if its the difference between you coming or not you could kip on an airbed in the front room (and Mel its a double!) or there is always a Travelodge  But I cant believe there isn't a B&B/Hotel available in Alston/Middleton-in-Teesdale somewhere  scratch 
First one in Google search looks nice but not sure about secure parking Suspect
