Matlock is too far up North, surely not? It's two and a half hours up the M1 or three if you stop for tea/coffee/bacon sarnie. ::001::

I've still not stopped laughing having lived in London myself and put up with "going down to Scotland" comments it doesn't surprise me.  I'm wondering where folk think Matlock is  ::010::

Try 6 hours for me but not swap ya for Scottish roads  ::025::  I'll come along if I can fit it around work and I ride me S10 to London from Edinburgh for work almost all year round so 266 miles be cool  ::008:: (done 24000 miles on me  5 month old bike already)

I ride "year round" - as long as it is nice enough to enjoy the ride, I can enjoy a ride on damp roads, or in fairly cold conditions but if it is cold and wet I won't bother, ice is another turn-off for me.

As for a meet, I am often left wanting for somewhere to ride at the weekend, if it is within a couple of hours of my door and I can string together an OK route - and have no prior commitments then I am good to go.

Tend not to do overnight events as I struggle to find enough time to visit my close friends and family who are inconveniently distributed throughout the land.

Yeah...ok folks....point taken...joke over!! I wonder how many of you regularly ride between 600-1000 miles a week though as I do for work. Hence...my point of not really wanting to do too many miles on a day off. Hope Im not working though coz Id still like to come along to Matlock (which is of course at the other side of the universe). Ha-ha

Matlock good for me ,  might not be the ideal place in spring though as the time of year can bring the idiots out so higher police presence doing spot checks on insurance etc on the roads leading in. There not a problem just  pain when a large group of ya

Well we seem to have several posters who are ok with Matlock and a couple of other sujestions, please let's hear more from more of you we've got the time to discuss  this further.

As regards to a date we have a sujestions of a date in April,( I know it's not a scientific fact but always think of April  showers?) Last March the 1st  ploughjockey trainman and myself did 150 miles through Norfolk on a bright fresh day, for me A mid March weekend could be better.  open to further input  and keen to go with the majority vote.

More opinions required please.

If my more recent experiences are anything to go by, the Derbyshire Constabulary have been pretty thin on the ground over recent years. They will come out for a play in and around Matlock Bath around the Easter bank holidays, as lots of Rossi wannabe's get their race replicas out and end up decorating the local dry stone walls with them. Otherwise there's the usual camera vans about but they're very predictable in their siting, as you can look up when and where they'll be. There are plenty of other beautiful and very bike friendly places to congregate, after you've had your fish and chips in Matlock Bath.  ::001::

Hi Bryn

Good to see this thread is still being viewed, I had hoped for a few more responses although we still have plenty of time and I would expect things to pickup early January.

Perhaps we should avoid the last weekend in March as its the Easter weekend, so we could make it the 12th or 19th if its to be March, open to any input for other dates to be considered.

Any weekend is OK for me - CMC Clay Cross is a decent run too.

Just make sure we book some decent weather. I've had it with wet rides recently. My S10 hates salt on the roads too; can't think why.

The thing to remember at CMC is not to overdo the grub...my suggestion is Toasted Tea Cake and a cuppa...leave room for the Fish Chips & Mushy peas later in Matlock  ::003:: ::003::

Sounds like a mighty fine idea Bryn...

Did you by any chance used to be a member of the Triumph Exploder forum?, there was a guy called Bryn on there with the same Avatar
