i liked this years. But i also liked essex? and then there was the GM... only one way yo decide?








btw i think it could be improved upon by having nice weather and taking in some of the more challenging roads we have? just a thought. i like the idea of the coast as well!

Im here, but not sure im paying attention

There are some good roads (but not a hill in sight!!) this way but whether they can be linked up to a good enough route im not sure, i'll mention it in our megathread and see what the general opinion is.

For the record, this is NOT me offering to organise AR12

I think we should take it abroad....

It usually boils down to needing people in the local area to organise things - plus the last few years have been fairly nicely spread about so I understand people not wanting to cover old ground.

I personally think that the roads of Suffolk can yield a great rideout - but I just don't have the time (or inclination if I am honest) to organise anything

I'd struggle to find a route as suited to my bike as that one Oli prep'd loved it, would hapily do it every year.
Steelie's already been back once and camped at the same venue.

The weather bit I'd agree with - but, "...more challenging roads" is at best problematic :-

What is 'challenging' for you might be downright scary for others; this along with the number of bikes involved in recent years (high point I think somewhere around the 100 mark) mean that any route has to cater for all abilities from someone who passed their test a few weeks previously to those that have been riding in all weathers for years - not an easy task I can tell you !

If we think of the AR as being the major meet up for most of the org, it makes sense to have it in as many different places as possible. In terms, roughly, of North, south, east and west I think it goes
AR08 South (west)
AR09 East
AR10 West
AR11 North
(I think AR07 was orth again, wasn't it? The very wet one in the same place as this year?)
So it looks to me like it's the South's turn again.
As mentioned Supervox and I have discussed the possibility of East again, but not until 2013, but that doesn't rule out an EAR proposal

Southern volunteers - PLEASE STAND UP!

And am I right in thinking that AR06 was West (ish) ? Over Ed's way?
