    How about another bike meet this year in the first weekend of May?

    I propose we start at H cafe in Oxford, www.h-cafe.co.uk/ then to Loomies Cafe Alton, www.loomies.co.uk/about.htm, then to Rykas cafe, www.boxhill.co.uk/information/where.htm

    Some good roads to be had with plenty of brew stops.

    What you guys think?

    YES! sounds good, H cafe is just down the road from me and the run to Loomies is fantastic.

    Aye, it's about two hours from me too.

    Think I'd be willing to make that journey though weather permitting.

    So do what the southerners did last year set a meet point and all ride together. I think there was 5 of us on the ride to Hinckley last year before we met all the others.

    It was a great day last year.

    I'm up for this. I'd be happy to head anywhere to meet up but the H Cafe is only 22 miles from me :D

    Also that twistly, slopey, road down to Rykas was great when I did it last summer.

    Tempting, haven't been to an OcUK meet for years but would be at least 3 1/2 hours from me.

    I'd be game for meeting at H-cafe but on an SM my backside will have had enough by the time I get there. So I might pop along to say Hi before you all head off for your ride out.

    I will go. I am in Milton Keynes so H cafe is not too far.

    Wont be there until about midday due to working nights and if anyone is passing by MK I can meet up on the way.

    Are you planning to do it on Saturday or Sunday or both days?
