I know Lily has already posted. But just wanted to say thank you to all those who organised it. Was a blast and will hopefully attend next years with Lily on her own bike.

All the peeps involved in the weekend should stand in a circle, turn to the right and give the person in front of them one great pat on the back for a truly top weekend.
That was such a great weekend I can't wait to do something similar again.

A massive 'thank you' to all of the organisers / doers this weekend.

The rain was a pain, but it didn't spoil everyone's fun. I'm cream crackered - but very happy.

August next year?

It was incredibly well done, you're all legends. I'm so pleased for the organisers that it paid off at last, it really was a total credit to you guys. Another brilliant weekend

Also, all future ARs must include a trip to the beach.

I also need to thank Petevtwin and Lissa for the spare room and dinner on the way down- and at such short notice too, absolute starts- and Mr and Mrs Luckypants for the offer on the way home (which in the end we didn't take up, but it was so cool of them to offer) and the same goes to all the other folks who offered space on the way down. And also to Blueflame, because he did all the navigating and I just followed him Much easier to do a long ride with 2 than 1.

Default Re: Thank You

I have already thanked people over and over, and , I won't stop, because it was just sooooo ace....finally found the tired brain cell and went to bed early

Teriakimonkey was a star, helping Daz and Matt push my bike back to the camp, a bit sozzled in the rain, from the car park......it was feeling a bit lonely up there on the Friday night!!!

However, i would like to thank all those who wished Matt well in his op at the end of the month. It really has meant a lot to us both, there was a lot of kind folks genuinely concerned and interested in whats going to happen, and to those who congratulated him on getting there.
Its probably the last time he'll get on a bike in many months
I know Jester said he'd done really well to get there, it certainly was an endurance test on gritting teeth. He fell into the tent for an hour with some painkillers on arrival. Rictus and Matt spent a lot of time chatting stuff over, and I'm grateful for that.......BIG HUGS HUN!!



Oh and Bear.......ta for rescuing him after falling over....toooooo much appleade, and I wouldn't have been able to pick that wonky drunk up

Thanks guys, its really meant a lot, its going to be a hard journey for us both over the next few months, but the end of a very long chapter at last
