Next Kent meet A249 Northbound: Sun 29th March 1pm

Recommended Posts

Hey Bob love you too kiss kiss. 

Egg, they can rest here for ages, no problem at all. If you're desperate for them we could meet up 2 metres apart in an isolated car park somewhere and I can roll/throw them the last 2 metres to you. I'm not going to come to the smol meet either.  I sort of assumed we'd probably want to postpone it until the future is rosey again.

Yep, going down Detling Hill flat out is an experience!  Brakes kinda fade at the bottom .. Stuboy will be ok as he has an R.S. airbrake on the back

I grew up in Maidstone - know Detling Hill well and exactly what you mean about the descent (towards Maidstone), looks easy until you attack it at speed then it's easy to run out of road, brakes, talent and luck as a few friends of mine did back in the mid-80's, ending up in the scenery.

It's a very cheeky speed camera at the bottom, you build momentum - so sticking to the 50 can be tricky if you're unfamiliar with it.

I was born in Maidstone and although my parents moved away when I was two years old, my grandparents lived there until 1979 with assorted aunts and uncles finally passing on in the mid-80s. I do remember quite a bit of the area from that time but Detling Hill escapes me.

 

Fascinating* I know.

      It didn't happen last year because I wasn't fit enough.  This year, and on the wave of having done Inverness for Christmas, I'm feeling up to a south-coast trip again.  This of course means there will be the usual Shiters' lunch meet at the burger van on Portsdown Hill, most likely on Wednesday May 13th.  I'll be in the wheelchair bus, sorry; MrsR has vetoed taking Hairy Pussy even before I've got it home.
      We will also be stopping each way at a Travelodge or Premier Inn somewhere in the Midlands, so there might be an opportunity for a Midlands Massiv Meet too.  Or even two of them!  It worked well enough at Cumbernauld!

      Yo! I've been nominated (many times) to organise a shitefest next year, considering i can't even organise my own life then this could be a challenge but I'm happy to try and arrange something if there enough interest?.
      I've made enquiries at the Rose pub where we hold our East Coast Retro car meets on in Shotley near Ipswich, Suffolk (IP9 1NL) and she's more than happy for us to use the field over weekend for £5 per person per night if sleeping over, there are toilet facilities and the pub does good grub plus they have a large room for us to have a meal or maybe a quiz on the Saturday night?.
      I've also spoken to a friend who's a volunteer at the Ipswich Transport Museum and even though the museum is closed to the public on a Saturday he can't see no reason why we can't have the museum to ourselves for a private tour around and even the possibility of a bus ride on one of their historic buses which I'm sure a few on here would really enjoy.
      Now it's obviously early days yet but what i need to know roughly is how many of you shitters be interested in this and i need to give the pub a date as their field is getting booked up so that we can secure for our chosen weekend.

      Anyone else going? UKSaabs is having a show there again this year, so do stop by and say hello.
      One of the advantages of having a stand is you get a code so your club members can get a discount on admission prices on the Saturday and Sunday. Not a huge amount of saving but anything is welcome. They insist that only members can get the discount code, but as you lot are all* members of UKSaabs if you want the code, drop me a PM and it will come back by return.
