I get lumbered with organising this 'event' every year but it is always a cracking weekend.
This year we have our biggest group ever....about 30 people, approx 20 bikes from various starting points around England & Wales descend on Cockermouth late Sat afternoon after a meandering ride around the North Yorkshire Dales, and the Lake District/Cumbria.
We stay at a VERY welcoming hotel in the town that do us bed, breakfast & evening meal for £42 per head.......the food in this place is outstanding and the non-motorcyclists in the hotel pay WAY more than we do!
There is a meet up for breakfast at the cafe at Stump Cross Caverns between Pateley Bridge and Grassington on the Sat morning at 10am......from there I have a choice of routes planned to Cockermouth......one via Alston and the Hartside pass, one via Coniston and the Hardknott Pass and one via Coniston and the Kirkstone Pass......all are approx 140 miles from SCC to Cockermouth.......choice based on time/weather on the day.
If anyone fancies a brilliant weekends riding, drinking & eating and plenty of laughs in the company of some friendly fellow motorcylists I have had a single room become available........or if anyone fancies joining in part of the ride or the breakfast meet up you are very welcome just to do that........Bilko came and met us for breakfast last year.
It would be nice to have another Futura up front!
