            Shrewsbury might suit both the "Northern Monkeys" and "Southern Softies".

              With Simbo's assistance, I'd like to suggest that the 2019 Annual Meet takes place on the first weekend in July, that being 5th, 6th & 7th.

              The day ride out would be on Saturday 6th July 2019.

              Accommodation would be at the Travelodge Shrewsbury Battlefield, https://www.travelodge.co.uk/hotels/289/Shrewsbury-Battlefield-hotel there is a pub/restaurant next door.
              (With Travelodge, payment has to be made upfront, but a full refund can be obtained if for any reason you have to cancel.)

              The Bikers' Britain book has been used to create a ride out based around the Ludlow North & South routes.
              The route has four sections with breaks, at Ludlow, Bransford & Ludlow. (It's a "figure of eight" route.)

              Section 1, Shrewsbury to Ludlow, 53.6 miles in 1 hour 17 mins.
              Section 2, Ludlow to Bransford, 48.4 miles in 1 hour 16 mins.
              Section 3, Bransford to Ludlow, 50.5 miles in 1 hour 15 mins.
              Section 4, Ludlow to Shrewsbury, 44.7 miles in 1 hour 11 mins.

              A total of just less than 200 miles in a riding time of 5 hours. Allowing up to 1 hour for each break, that's an 8 hour day.

              Perhaps an earlier start of 09:30 might be more appropriate.

                Excellent work chaps - thank you.


                I just tried to book my room, but they're not yet available.  As soon as they are, "Im in"

                      The routes are available & have been emailed.

                      (If anyone else is interested in attending & would like a copy of the route, just PM me an email address).
