    You may well hear the drone of a posse of Pegs approaching along the A59 as 3 will be heading from that direction.

    After a 'memorable day' we have folded wings at the youth hostel at Hawes. Report to come

    The day after the night before.
    3 Pegs and an imposter stop to pose at the top of Buttertubs Pass. A location that never fails to please.
    The roads had been wet overnight, but the weather just kept improving as our ride progressed.
    Our contingent from the far South had made an early depart for home leaving just we few to plunder the beauty of the Dales.
    We reached 5 Pegs in total on day 1. Robbie7334 and Heath12 joined us, together with Joe and Andrew, friends of Robbie.

    Marvellous time had by all apart from Joel underwater excursions on the ford which everyone was egging ytc and myself to do and we definately were going to. However, before we got there Joel went for it and ended up being stuck under his s1000 BMW in the ford which was not only like black ice but on an incline. the rescue party which ran into help also ended on their backs!

    By the time the idiots arrived we decided to avoid more catastrophe!

    We missed Aquaman piloting his BMW U531.

    What we have learnt this week us that BMWs lay down on their sides more than Pegs :-)

    Sounds like a grand day out. Would've loved to have been there. The Dales was my old stomping ground. Waiting for pics of U531

    Unfortunately our press officer was otherwise engaged (riding "dangerous" roads) and the office junior had an equipment malfunction.
    We will have to await Robbie to apply eye witness words.

    First of all a massive thank you to George for arranging a cracking meet.
    Also for his generosity (breakfast and coffee for us all).
    Joel , what can I say?
    How difficult can it be he said ?and he just went for it .
    Got half way across and then went down like a sack of spuds.
    With an audience of 10 plus hikers,Jean,Heath ,SOJ and myself .
    His leg was trapped under the bike.
    He was yelling at us to get the bike off him we started walking across the ford
    Watching us must of been something like Eddie the eagle doing an impression of robin cousins.
    Heath came to help and went flying and ended up on his back.
    It was like walking on ice literally .
    We managed to free his leg after several attempts to lift the bike.
    This is when it got realty tricky as we started to try and lift the bike up.
    All of us plus the bike start sliding down the Ford .
    Heath jammed his foot under the front wheel and we finally had a bit of stability.
    Next we managed to get the side stand down so we now had a bit of control.
    SOJ suggested pushing the bike forward.
    I over ruled him ,if we did that the stand would keep springing back up.
    So we inched it backwards with the stand down and finally back onto dry land ,drama over ,very little damage to the bike .
    Joel ended up with a sore leg but nothing to serious and it was a lot better the following day .
    This was s first trip for SOJ he loved it and can’t wait for the next one .
    Ounce again thank George you’re a star regards Robbie

    Classic. That would've gone viral on YT. Glad to hear neither bike nor rider picked up any serious damage.

    Yes a 'memorable day' as ytc1 put it. Great roads and great weather for a change yet we still managed to get wet! Glad Joel was feeling better the next day. 10/10 for commitment!

    Yes - big thanks to George who spolit us all with sublime roads and views, coffes, cafes and interpretation of the local dialect...'owww much?'

    very impressed with Hawes YHA and Yorkshire Dales on the whole.

    The mid-week option seemed to work very well meaning in quite a touristy area, the roads were pretty clear and we could get to the bar as quick as neccesary.

    I've agreed to take the next one on for 2020 and we'll head back to Bridges YHA near Church Stretton, Shropshire which was a lovely quirky place, only lead down by the food at the pub.

    We'll probably opt to eat in at the YHA with something semi-prepared with a few bottles of wine and then head to the pub after.

    I am going to really struggle to find some roads to top that which George found for us, but I will give it my best! I've a few very nice green lanes in mind for the trailists with an equally impressive road to keep road bikes with a smile. No fords!

    I've done a helmet cam vid of some of weekend, will load it up when I've got time.

    cheers

    Dave

    Yes, one of the few occasions where the idiots who ventured offroad into the hills faired better than the sensible types who stuck to the tarmac. ( Right up to the point a river fording beckoned them. )
