CLUB WEEKEND AWAY 14th - 16th June

Post by sue m » Wed Jan 02, 2019 9:12 pm

At the AGM it was decided that we would go to the Peak District in June for the main club weekend away.

We last went to the Peak District back in 2012 https://www.newforce.org.uk/gallery/dar ... -may-2012/ for some photos.

There is loads of mountain biking at different standards available and we will hopefully have at least 2 and probably 3 different groups.

Date 14 to 16th June probably staying at https://www.yha.org.uk/hostel/yha-castl ... ChildAges=

Cost £30 each a night in dorms (4 to 6 bed) and £70 a night for a twin ensuit room (just 4 available). There does not appear to be any camping spots left. Breakfast is extra. B&Bs look to be £85 to £90 a night upwards in the village. Peak District is expensive....

The village is just a 15min walkway for pub meals.

Can you please let me know asap if you are coming and if you want a dorm room or a twin room or will book a B&B in the village. susanm(at)newforce.org You will be committing to paying or finding someone else to take your place....
I would like to book in the next week or so as most accommodation in the area is already booked.

For those who have not done a weekend away with the club we normally meet up Friday lunch time in the area for an afternoon ride, head to a local pub for a meal where those who have decided not to ride in the afternnoon join us.

Saturday day ride with tea and cake back at the hostel then a pub meal.
Sunday long half day ride then head home.
If you want an extra day then it would be possible to book a room on the Sunday night but not the Thursday.

There is normally lift sharing and a great time is had by all. See https://www.newforce.org.uk/gallery/exmoor-2018/ for last years photos.
If partners etc want to come and walk or sightsee etc and join us inthe evenings that is fine.

Wondering what riding in the Peak District is like have a look at these videos https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M4XwM9o4EXA and https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cUdcdB3Rr5Y I'm sure a few of us will be walking some of the more technical sections... loads of ridable sections...

Still places....

I can do this now. J+L's campsite seems to be caravans-only, so I would like a space in the YHA please - or I could probably camp elsewhere nearby if there's a shortage of space in the hostel.

Hi Sue. I have booked the Caravan Club campsite at Castleton for 3 nights, Thurs to Sunday, so thinking of riding Friday afternoon and Saturday.

Keep me in loop about plans and will confirm attendance nearer the time.

Many thanks,

Patrick

Hi Sue,
Put me down for a twin, or two in a dorm if the twins have gone.

All of the booked rooms have now gone. There maybe space in the general dorms so let me know if you want to come and I can investigate.

It looks as though there are still dorm spaces and rooms available for booking on the YHA website
