UK, Saturday 19th May - Forget the wedding Mid Wales rideout

Any UK members fancy a ride into mid Wales this coming Saturday? Hoping that the majority of people will be inside watching that wedding on the TV and the roads will be reasonably clear. Elan Valley and some other good roads will likely feature. Start from Ledbury at 9:30am. Will probably be meeting some others off the Ducati forum en-route. Pace will be medium to quick though not ballistic, though that's subjective I accept.

I would be interested if I can get out of a family BBQ that I've been roped into!

OK. good luck planning your escape from the wedding BBQ. Not sure where you're coming from but I'll be at the Market House in the centre of Ledbury at, or shortly before 9:30 on Saturday. This route to Crossgates where we'll be meeting the Ducati mob, the guy who's organised the route will take over at that stage unless he asks me to do that bit (I led them last time we were in the area as they didn't know it that well).

If I can get the time off from the long list my wife has for me to do, I'll be there.

Good timing - my wife is away for the weekend with our little one so I am free to come out and play! Still a bit new to the bike so I'll probably be the slow one at the back...

Thanks for confirming Stinger and TruffleShuffle, will PM my mobile number to you and any others (confirmed or not) tomorrow at some point. Don't worry about pace, on the way to Crossgates, if there's just the three of us, then, if necessary, I'll hold back to keep you in my mirrors. If there are more of us we might adopt the look after the man behind method. After Crossgates, depending on numbers we may use the drop-off-system (will explain that if you don't know it). The first we ride to the pace of the slowest rider, the other two each person rides at their own pace but the way it works, in theory... no one gets separated from the group or gets lost.

It goes without saying, but I'll do so anyway, at all times do not get sucked into riding outside of your comfort zone.

This will hopefully be the route, not my gig but guy who is organising (Paul, white Multistrada DVT) seemed to think that looked right (think that he's something of a 'let the day unfold' person in terms of planning...). As I've said previously we'll be joining the rest of the group at Crossgates, so we have 50 odd miles to do first.
