Gibraltar race 2019 anyone?
« on: September 20, 2018, 09:06:41 AM »
Hi all,

This one ticks all the boxes for me... Going to an information evening about this, including riders who where on last years event.

I'm seriously thinking about doing this one. I can imagine I'm not the only one on this forum so react if you're thinking about it too!

Cheers guys,

Dennis

Possibly stating the bleeding obvious here but that route goes nowhere near Gib.  Just saying.

Have you seen the queues to get in Gib?  :001:
Tinkering is what happens when you try something you dont quite know how to do, guided by whim, imagination, and curiosity.

Yes - usually was part of the problem as I was onboard an aircraft landing there.

I'm looking at riding to Gib and back next year (but not in a race). 2 of my daughters live there :)

I'm planning on doing it in 2020. Getting married this year so don't have the funds or holiday time to compete this year.

Instead I'm doing the Taffy Dwrg in May https://www.taffydrwg.co.uk/ and if I don't completely stuff that up then I'll book on for 2020 Gibraltar Race. I went to a local talk of a chap who competed on and Africa Twin last year and it seems open to most skill levels as long as you've ridden off-road before.

when you could have done the following weekends Tiger Megameet in the Lake district, currently 31 bikes listed. Myself, Rozzer and Rich (and wife) will be riding up from Devon. :164:

unless you have a secret route from Cornwall to Somerset you'll still be riding up from Devon (where James is) .  :007: :008:
