I am up for camping Shep, even in Scotland with the fearsome midges! The only let down I find with Scotland is the weather. I ride in the rain but its obvoiusly far better in the dry. But Scotland certainly has the most 'varied' of British weather. :roll:
I know no such thing as bad weather just bad clothes.
If a meet is to happen first thing is to set aside some preferable dates/weekends avoiding the main holiday month of August? perhaps can anyone set up a online poll for dates and UK regions as a starter.
Would do if I knew how.

The SMT gets collected in 8 days time after PX'ing the R1 yesterday.
I'm based in Burton-on-Trent in the Midlands, and definitely up for a spin out / camping trip - as long as there's a few beers on the agenda.

And i'll get the 1st round in....!

Hi all,

As Bug has already said "Any chance someone could set up a poll of where they would prefer to ride Wales, The Lakes, Yorkshire, Scotland or Devon/Cornwall and which Weekend/Month"

Im already riding in Yorkshire 12th-15th May and a walking and riding trip 4th-9th July based in Betsy-coed. A good try out for the Trax panniers the dealer supplied with the SMT.

Cheers Itchyring

I've done some cycle camping through France with a Coleman Cobra tent a few years back - the latest version of this is the 'Bedrock' which you can get for about £35 on Amazon. After a few years, its still watertight and going strong. Also got a 3/4 length self inflating mattress that I've got, but with the extra 110bhp on tap, i'd probably plump for something a bit more plush!
