Sorry if this has already been posted (searched the forum and can't find anything that my query brought up). Where in Gloucester and what time  is everyone meeting up?

Thanks

As a couple of posts up, ride will start at 9am on the Saturday (12 May 18), or as soon after as Justin has finished his breakfast  :038:

As most people are stopping here:

Hallmark Hotel Gloucester,
Marlstone Close, Robinswood Hill, Gloucester, GL4 6EA

t:    0330 0283408
d:   01452 874831
f:    01452 303365
e:   Hannah.Morris@hallmarkhotels.co.uk     
w:  www.hallmarkhotels.co.uk/gloucester

Then I'm assuming that's where we'll set off from, but given the total lack of information from the organiser, or any semblance of a route I can understand why you had to make the query  :008:

Hi Justin
Are you still planning on doing the foss way on Sunday?
Im only asking as I cant decide whether to bring the super 10 or the street scrambler.
The s10 has off-road tyres on at the mo.
What do you think?

Russ

only if there is enough interest  :152:

As above we will set off from the Hallmark hotel at 9am. This is by the Ski center if you are local.

I do not intend to publish the route at this time - that way I can make changes on the fly if the group gets held up or takes longer than I anticipate, remember I did say at the beginning that this is not a tour of the pretty Cotswolds but a ride of (hopefully traffic allowing) good roads. !! It will be approx 200 miles with 2 stops + 1 fuel stop (about 120 miles in)

I am awaiting evening meal info for Saturday evening from the Hotel, due to people arriving at different times on Friday, Friday evening will be from the Hotel menu.

Once I have this info I will be asking for people to let me know if they are eating at the hotel on either night - non guests its 20 per head each night.

I am also arranging a small Raffle on Saturday evening and money raised will go to a local Special school who are raising funds for a new state of the art therapy center.

Now Dilbert, what else would you like to know?

Mrs D8ona insists on riding her Triumph Bobber to the meet so that means she has a maximum range of 120 miles or 70 if she starts showing off  :300: ... I will likely be bringing the Triumph Scrambler (proper air cooled one with none of that "street" thingy) as my 800 is long gone Eetalian  :017: we will be eating in hotel on Friday and Saturday and may possibly come down on Thursday
There's someone in my head but its not me..?

Mrs D8ona , we are not worthy  :020:
The 70/120 mile range may be less than the Ducati scrsmbler of two years ago but i doubt that will hold back da boss from hooning around and showing up T800 riders

Ok I'll do another check on the distance to fuel stop and could bring one in earlier if required  :001:
