WYE VALLEY INFO/GROUPS 13thOct 2017

Post by Pirate » Sun Sep 10, 2017 7:39 am

We're back to play in the forest of Dean, where boys will be boys, legends made and bikes broken!

This is a 'open' private event for the members of the MT Riders Club and friends. All profits go to the Scout Association.

For those who've not been before this is traditionally the last event of the year. There is ample camping in the grounds and space for the not so hardy in the Scout Hut. The hut was nicely refurbished a year ago and has toilets/ showeres. Those wishing to 'Bunker' their bikes or vaamping are most welcome but please try to keep the vans off the grass!

Pirate tries to kill everyone on the Friday with his infamous (much improved) BBQ and a fire pit for you to tell those TALL stories round. Breakfasts are served in the Cycle shop just across the road from us and the Saturday evening meal in the Fountain Inn behind us. Tea and Coffe is freely available. Canned drink will be available at a £1 per can honesty box. Please inform me makes of beer/cider as I don't drink. Don't complain if I get the wrong stuff, John Smiths!!

The Scout Hut,
New Road,
PARKEND
GL15 4HG

COST

Weekend including BBQ/Sat meal £37
Weekend without Sat Meal £27
Just camp £20

Please pay in advance to avoid problems. If you are going to be 'last min' or really can't pay in advance please pm me.

A splendid offer from Minter.


Postby Minter ¬Ľ 08 Sep 2017 0837

After much Umming and Arring Ive decided to grace you all with the MT Club shop and Sportax get you home emergency spares shop!

I had a clash of diary dates for 3 different events but the MT boys have won me over! I do enjoy the trails, I love Pirates BBQ!, The pub on a Saturday evening is great, Bacon butties in the morning in the mountain bike shop are a great way to start each day! and to top it all I'll be able to park next to the Scout Hut with 240v hook up as Shiney is unable to support this classic event on the MT calendar!

One thing I'll be offering on the Friday (and probably Saturday morning for late arrivals) is a 'Pre Event Scrutineering Service'

This will be a free service to check over riders bikes to ensure they are set up correctly for off road - or indeed road riding. This came to me at the North Wales ride out where I helped ride a few bikes up some of the more challenging obstacles! And what made it an extra challenge for me was 30PSI in tyres, hand grips twisting on throttle tubes, carbs hanging off, twisted bars, incorrectly set up carbs, sticking throttles, Clutches requiring 2 hands to pull in the lever - the list goes on!!

However after rectifying most of the above on the trails, there were no more crashes, no more fails on tricky obstacles and much bigger grins!

Happy days! Whilst you're getting your bike sorted you can brows the MT shop which now has lots of clearance bargains and hopefully new stock!

If you've never been to an MT meet this is a must, come along enjoy the banter and riding and Pirates infamous BBQ!

See you all there..

:D

Now I wonder what excuses people will come up with this year!!
