Be great to catch up. Tuscany was pretty good (I think, now the rose tinted gebs are on). Actually, must give the bike a wash, its still covered in dust and chianti. Out of interest, who where the Boners we met out there?

Good effort Growler for the cat herding (pint earned from me definitely), I'm absolutely looking forward to it, I grew up as a kid in Pickering and loved spending time on the moors, never had an opportunity until now to go bikepacking there, the heather must be in full purple by now :-bd

Heather has turned in places. Its usually full purple haze at this time of year, but due to the hot dry summer, some, not all has gone brown. A few dead sheep around too, which are fermenting nicely :o

Yep, there's a few of us going up from Manchester. Steve Large is on the entry list too from memory.

Looking into finding a pub or something in the area for a few of us to kip at on the Friday night and maybe have a shandy or two. Si - can you think of anywhere?

Couple of good pubs in Goathland, and Abbots Farm Campsite is good too (crawling distance from the pub). Should be there for around seven on the friday evening, and Gil probably earlier if there is the promise of ale.

OK folks
I have put an updated GPX file on the website. Where i converted the route into a track yesterday using Memory M(Cr)ap, it cut lots of corners off to reduce the number of waypoints. Old file is fine if using a map or memory map app, but if loading straight into a garman, some of the junctions were really squared off. I had a few hours this morning re drawing the route with much more detail and it now looks tip top. So you need to go back onto the website and download the new files. Sorry for the balls up, but id rather sort this now than have you lovely people get lost on't moors.

For reasons of unbelievable tedium I will now not be able to attend next weekend.

I have informed the organisers but my name is still down on the 130 entrance list - so if anyone wants to pretend to be me for the weekend please pm.

Please be aware to carry off the full "me" effect you will need to be very slow; mostly heading in the wrong direction and overloaded.

***IMPORTANT***

Due to just about every spare bed in Goathland being taken next weekend, I’ve just called in at the Community Hub

https://communityhubsportspavilion.co.uk

They will be opening the gates on Friday afternoon at 4:30 and are offering parking from friday evening to Sunday night for just £10 per car. That includes camping on the football pitch on the Friday night, use of the changing rooms and showers and they will be opening the bar too. Route maps and any final info will also be available inside until 9am on the Saturday morning. Camping on the Sunday night be negotiable (I’ll get back to you on that one). Every single penny of this goes straight back into the community, so please, if you have not already arranged accommodation, give this your support.

Please note there is a birthday party using the centre on the Saturday night, so only park on the football pitch as directed.

Cheers
Si

Might be a bit late to the party; however, have signed up for the mailing list.

See if I can get in.
