Hi Guys, Sorry I haven't bumped this up recently, been a busy few months!

Went down to the Swancote the other day to check all is good and it is. The owner will be putting BBQ food on for us but I could realy do with knowing some numbers, If your thinking of coming can you book through the website or at least mention it on here so I can let him know.

Rough schedule so you have an idea,

Campsite open from 1pm on Friday 17th June.

General setting up tents etc meets and greets.

Possibly a short rideout if people fancy it just to get there bearings.

We have a local Irish girl called Claire Diamond doing a few solo songs on the Friday evening, followed by The Barrel'o'Baddies who play "traditional celtic punk". Seen them a few times and they really bring the room alive. A nice easy night for everyone to catch up and good music. Nothing too hardcore but should be a laugh. We should have a DJ to keep the music flowing after the bands.

Saturday morning

Rideout around 10.00ish. The planned route isn't huge but is full of great local roads. Maps and directions will be given out on the day (again numbers will help me plan this better) Im sure there will be fast and slow people but just go at your pace, were planning to end the rideout at the local bike cafe. ... quatt.aspx so if you fancy some grub thats the place to be!

If you miss the rideout we should be at the cafe around 12ish so you can meet us there, from the cafe we will be riding to Projex Dyno rooms in Cradley aiming to start the dyno runs at about 1pm. There is a WHEELIE bike there that you can pay for ago, I'll let you know the price once i've spoken to Kev next week. Video of it can be seen here

If you want to meet at Swancote for the rideout, cafe or just straight to Projex then thats fine.

Once were all sorted at Projex we will be heading back to Swancote where there will be food and beer avaliable to start the night ahead!

I think Saturday night will be the night for the beer!

We have a local rock band starting the night off and then followed by the Whisky Syndicate (you have to visit the website and have a listen) again hopefully a DJ to keep us entertained afterwards.

Bar will be open late both nights.

Sunday im hoping everyone will be nursing hangovers.

If people wish there may be a rideout to Cosford RAF Musuem but this is depending on numbers about 10.30am ish. Im guessing most people we want to be heading off but if you do make sure you find me and let me know.

Any other questions just ask away.

See the website for more info and booking details.

Postcodes for venues are

Bridgnorth Bike Cafe WV15 6QJ

I'll be handing out a mobile number to all that are camping on the day incase you get lost or have any problems. I will try and get my trailer there so if you do sieze that smoker up we can at least get it back to Swancote but I can't say 100% I can. Im sure there will be enough vans and trailers anyway!

PS, A big thankyou for Sean at for sponsoring the event!
