UK Force Ride 5 2015

is there any interest in a "FR5 UK"?

would suggest Wales again as the best riding in the UK.

I know Devon around Oakhampton well enough to take 3 days riding?

but its better to ride than sit at home or to TALK ABOUT IT!!!!

previous rides have been to
2011 Llangollen (North-East Wales)
2012 Dolgellau (North-West Wales)
2013 Rhayader (East-Mid Wales)
2014 Ystradgynlais (Mid-South Wales)

let's keep this going lads, please give your full support!

Date would be the first May Bank Holiday weekend as usual 2015 and for the Friday to Sunday inclusive. there's no fee just a deposit that goes towards a T-shirt of just £15. Camp or Guest Hose etc it matters not.

the two Dutchmen that came over this year reckoned they had ridden in 15 countries and it was the best riding they'd ever done BUT; "why so many phukin gates"!!!!!!! so it came second to some alpine pass in Italy where you can see for 100KM on a clear day blah! blah! (LOL!)

regards

I can't see any way that your bike will green lane? 1 gallon? no suspension, immaculate finish, wrong tyres?

the list is endless. try it first and if you get on fine then fine but from here it isn't a green lane contender.

Don't get upset ... Yours is a very cool bike. It is just the wrong bike for that ride. Taffy was just being straight with you. When people show up with the wrong bike or skill set to specific events it taxes the other riders as well as themselves.

I'd love to do this but, alas, I'm on the wrong side of the big pond.
My daughter just got accepted to the Law program at Liverpool ... Who knows, I may get the opportunity to visit in the next couple years.

I was at the Dragon Rally this weekend and did a lot of runs in North Wales. the weekend we have tradionally run - the first May bank holiday: there is the Taffy Dakar in the South at the same time.

I'm looking for a commitment now, there are only a handful of us so I need to get this right? how many days do you want to ride? there are 3 days. Friday, Saturday AND Sunday. go home Sunday night and you have all day Monday to clean them up.

Fergus hgas said yes and he'll bring Sean with him but I can't trust Fergus (sorry if you're reading this Fergus!).

if you're happy for me to organise the riding I just need the commitment. please don't say 'yes' unless you have checked everything.

more UHE members are welcome!

regards

OK I'm looking at the Wye Valley for this years ride. this is near Usk just into south east Wales.

just to remind you
this is the 5th year
you can ride one Husaberg rider to one rider on another make
other than that rule = all are welcome
it'll be three days riding and you should perhaps try and ride two of the three minimum.

riding days are friday1st, Saturday 2nd and Sunday 3rd May. most arrive Thursday night and go Sunday evening straight after the third day.

all we need are 5-6 of us.

I can get loads of routes for that area. I have done the riding that way last Summer and it is sublime. good - but not stupid like some of it can get in the Brecons or on the vertical mountains. this should be the easiest year.

there is a lack of gates in this area compared to normal. the nearer you get to England = the less there are!

as Fergus and I plus probably Sean are up for it = who else have we.

I need 'yes' not 'maybe' now as people are always pulling out and being unreliable. sorry but it is the truth of it.

please don't say:
"i should be OK.............."
"I'm pretty certain.........."

sorry for being a pig about it but there you are!

BTW, it went ahead with 20, 24 and 16 and then last year - 3. so it WILL go ahead this year with 3 again. it is on.

we are considering a guest house this year or better still - over a pub but near a camp site. I'm 54 soon and I like the idea. the camp site will be HQ if more are there.

if we get to 10 I'll ask for a deposit and get some T-shirts made again as we did the first 3 years.

regards

Taffy

Trust issues Taffy?!

Please appreciate that when someone has a broken leg, a family matter or a business issue they usually take care of those before sodding off riding. There is no riding without earning for many mortals, and those with family that want to keep their family, also prioritize accordingly.

Maybe it was your poor choice of words but I deeply resent being labelled 'untrustworthy' by you of all people.
Thanks from bushmechanic and spanner
