any more updates on the Tribemeet??, will there be a ride scheduled for each day as with previous meets? / evening stuff / BBQ etc??, i live about 6 miles from Brands and was wondering if it's worth camping or just coming down each day??
There's a few places to ride round there - in fact there was an old MBR route which passes about 2 miles from the circuit. A long time since I rode it but IIRC it's about 24 miles and about 65% off road. Official start point was Wrotham.
I see what you mean, but at less than 30 people at Afan last year, the Traditional meet seems to have run its course. (and after the weekend at Crime Central - I don't really want to sort it out anymore!- would have felt so guilty if we'd have lost bikes)
Its good of Evolution to stump up a load of cash, and are organising a Hog Roast, Beer and a Marquee (so far), these will be just for Yeti owners to enjoy. There will be more news following........
Yes, its going to be different, and yes it won't be like Wales, but I think we need to give it a chance, it could be really good.
There is only so much I can sort out with zero budget, last year shows this, so its nice to have YETI UK (Evolution) back on board, and after 7 years of my way, I think its only fair to do it their way!!
Hope you can make it.
Also, note the 20% discount for Yeti owners when booking. Please email me for the code (Current code expired- new one on the way).
If anyones interested I think myself and Mark from TBC will more than likely get up to Fort Bill at some point if people want to make a weekend of it then game on. Camping, beer, Downhill, XC, 4x oh and Yeti's.
Not stealing anything from the meet, I cant make it due to work etc but would be keen to get up the bill.
I wouldn't mind Cannock at some stage. Handy location for most I would have thought. I ride it a few times a year when I am working up there and I agree with your opinion of the Monkey. I rode it last week and reckon they have done a good job.
Cannock is looking promising, but there is stuff so so so so much better than the Monkey Trail & FTD. They also get very busy if its sunny. Good thing about those trails is it keeps people off the good singletracks!
I am still looking at Fort William, but when do the lifts close?
