    If I stick to my original plan I'll be cycling to Ingleton via Kingsdale then back via Chapel le Dale and Cowgill taking in a few pubs along the way so if anyone sees me lying in a ditch please stop and drag me out

    Here are some vague details of my ride out for you to consider.
    I need to be back at a sensible time as I have a wedding to get to.
    So in order to not short change you and avoid the chaos at departure time I propose an early start.
    Plan to be away from Dent at 09.15 sharp. Back in Dent around 17.30ish
    The route is largely the same as the last two years with the same offroad sections.
    Gaurenteed to get your steed muddy and make you look well hard on the camp site.
    There are some changes though, suptle but changes non the less.
    The route dips into Yorkshire, Cumbria, Weardale, Teasdale, County Durham and Northumberland.
    Getting as far north as Kielder forest and Hadrians Wall.
    On a mix of peachy single track roads through stunning scenery and includes the highest lane in England.
    And some fast as you like twists.
    The off road is easy, and suitable for big GS's on normal rubber. There is a ford but again easy.
    Will have a good stop for lunch and a coffee stop at some point if time allows.
    If you are after a sedate coffee shop bimble this ride is not for you it is a full day out on some challenging roads.
    The pace at times will be brisk, no 40mph pootling. No crazy speeds(unless you want to) just brisk!
    So there you go, come and have a go if you think you're hard enough.
    I'm not staying at Dent as only live up the road but will be popping over on the Friday and will be there from 08.30ish
    on Saturday. I will be parking near the exit and will put a note on the bike so will be easy to find.
    Once again my mate Andy will also be joining us and he and I will take it in turns to lead and tail end.
    No fancy drop off system just alway make sure the person behind you has seen you turn at a junction.
    Any questions just ask.
    Paul.

    Thouroghly recommend this ride....had a ball last year, still got part of Kielder Forest plastered under the tank
    However this time round Mrs.tree will be in close proximity, don't want to scare her witless, a slightly more sedate day out is in order

    I've just seen the sad news about trickytree. The above recent post came to mind. He seemed to be one of life's good eggs.
    The kind of person you would have enjoyed his company.

    RIP fella and condolences to his family.

    ride.

    In honour of the t'owd lad we will once again visit Kielder forest
    so you too can get some of it stuck under your tank.
    If you are worried about the off road sections, they are really novice friendly.
    Ideal for taking a big bike on.
    The trickier of the sections can easily be missed out if you wish, meeting up
    further along the road. The Kielder stretch can also be missed but is a long detour.
    But it is not hard.Patx did it two up on a 1200adv the first time we did it.
    All suitable for road tyres, (my bike is currently wearing tourances).

    We should learn from the weather. It pays no attention to criticism. [/I]

    Sunday

    For those still standing on Sunday Magnet and I are happy to do a run if there's a demand for it. It will probably be similar to last year's Sunday run with perhaps a few variations. Probably across Buttertubs, up through Arkengarthdale, Teesdale, and on further North, with a return via Allendale and various other bits.

    Thanks to Johnny Boxer for leading us around the dales. I had a great day on the old clunker, the pace was just right. Please note that I'm not normally a Dayglow Derek, but wearing that over jacket was a lot cheaper than replacing my leaking riding jacket, and I got the important role of being tail end Charlie. I suppose it was because I wouldn't dazzle the group being at the back
