Hello everyone.
Just joined the TRF after finding loads of useful and interesting articles on the new website.
I live in Coventry so have joined the West Midlands group and hope to head over to a meeting soon. Could anyone advise if the meeting Details: Meet 1st & 3rd Wednesday of the month at 8pm @ Wilmcote Working Mens Club, Wilmcote, Stratford upon Avon, Warwickshire are still correct?

I ride a F650GS and have done some green lanes around Warwickshire and have done a couple of off roads days in Wales on hired CRF250Ls but wanted to know if there are any adventure bikers who meet up for longer, less challenging terrain suitable for a GS with twinduro's rather than a full trail bike?

The shed is cleared out for a CRF of my own probably early next season but would like to get both dirty.

I'm also very interested in longer rides abroad as I'm a keen traveler so will be keeping my eyes open though these will be the first on the bike.

Looking forward to meeting you soon.

Hi Adam

I'm leading a ride round the Peaks with a few others from the Cambridge Group on Saturday 9th September. We'll be meeting / starting from Matlock area.
I'll be riding a GSA1200, so the route will be fine for you and your F650GS.
Drop me a PM if you're interested.

Steve

@Steve - Thanks for the invite, unfortunately I'm not available on the 9th but would have loved to as the Peaks aren't too far away from me and definitely one of my favorite areas. Please let me know if you've got any more on the horizon.

@Mario.costasa thanks for the link to the facebook event, that looks too good to miss! I've just emailed them to see if there are any spaces left. Is anyone else heading over to this?

Hello Adam

My next trip around the Peak District will be 30th September.
Another of the Cambs boys is coming up on his BMW F800GS.
So it'll def be suitable for big bikes, novices and the nervous.
