Don't do it. Miles better do last year.
There is a great campsite at Rattlinghope in Shropshire. I have spoken to the farmer about hosting an event there. Good pub not far away and camp fires are allowed
There are lanes to ride.
Could be an option
sounds good to me

I spoke to the farmer, John Sankey, a few months ago about the possibility of having a club weekend there and he said it would be fine. :D
I will go and see him to check for sure if it would still be ok. And to find out about prices. 8-)
If the club commitee would like me to do so. The dates and possible numbers of attendance would be a help to.
The pub is about a mile from the campsite and is called, The Horseshoe. Also know as the Bridges. There food is great and it is owned by the 3 Tuns brewery. :D

I'm going to sew a patch on the patch on my tent! But then on the other hand I might just use GAFFER TAPE.

Well they will let Russ on!
Ratlinghope is on the Long Mynd https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Long_Mynd which is an absolutely fantastic part of the country, and is also in a good central location for the Big Meet. there are green lanes in the area http://www.mtb-shropshire.co.uk/2014/01 ... reen-lanes The pub is right good http://www.thebridgespub.co.uk/contact-us/ and so is the campsite http://www.browfarmcampsite.co.uk/

This would be an AWESOME place for the big meet. ( I can not possibly big this place up enough).
