Just been looking at the weather, and it's looking good. Bright sunshine and a temp of 22 degrees!!


Anyone fancy making this a rideout? I was thinking we could meet in Derby and make our way out from there?


I am happy to organise a meeting point if people are up for the ride out?

Right, if anyone wants to join me in riding there I am arranging a meeting place of here.

This is a McDonalds so we can meet in the car park.


Don't know what time everyone wants to meet though, so suggestions are welcome? Personally I was thinking 10am?


The show opens at 9am.

I'll be taking the small peeps so won't be on the bike but would still be upfer meeting up at Donny Park with anyone going!


Timings for our arrival depend on whether or not Junior Slogger Sheepy has a tennis coaching course in the morning or not.


I guess I might be able to pop over for the ride in then nip home and do the Dad-style duties if need be!

Don't worry about that Barbie, we always go as fast as the slowest rider. Don't mind a slow ride at all.


No one else has suggested a time, so I will and say between 10 and 10:30.
