Just had the most delicious freshly made Harira soup for lunch here; gorgeous.

Unfortunately, Nigel will have the whole place to himself with just the cable channels for company.

I used to glide from the Midland gliding club and have spent years and years mountain biking all over the Long Mynd.
Lots of superb roads around the base of the Mynd and loads of very scenic, single track, steep gradient switchbacks up and down the Mynd. God, hope the weather is nice. Loads of eating places and cafes all over the place if they are open.

As for meeting places; the easy to get to and convenient place would be the Co-op supermarket car park in the town centre (loads of room and toilets), or if you are feeling adventurous the gliding club car park high on the Mynd with break-taking views and loads and loads of space.

And Nigel, I will give you a text later on your time when I finish here to see if I cannot facilitate you being there as well.
Be safe.

Ranjan.
Ranjan,

Funny you should say about the gliding club. I had the opportunity to go up in one, the winch thing to launch you off was something else, the chap I was with did the loop the loop and I crapped myself, had a go steering st the horizon and then couldn't wait to get back down to earth. Was a fantastic experience. There is a decent mountain bike shop in church Stretton too.

Tempted to actually tax my rx8 for the month to drive up, might scare some sheep tho

How do you chaps feel about going back into a pub for the September meet. I have just spoken to the Sun Inn about it,and they are more than happy to cater for us,whilst obeying the advice in force at the time, so ,what do you think?,rob.

Hi everyone
I’m new to the group and only had my RX8 a few months now. Looking to meet some of you guys soon though. I’m near Birmingham myself but willing to travel a bit. West mids is a good start for me.
Keep us posted on what you guys are doing and I’ll try and be there. Kev
Hi Kev, the August meet in Church Stretton is probably about the closest we would ever get to Brum, so we may see you there as it's on your doorstep,thanks,rob.

Personally i think i would rather not be inside just yet,not to mention the lateness of booking somewhere in a place i am not familiar with.
I would be very interested in what the others think about it. If it helps,i am going to take pot luck with the weather as an excuse for a drive out,but fully appreciate that others have much further to travel,so please keep us posted. rob.

Guys,

If the weather does not change, I will have to cancel; the MX5 is built for the track so leaks like a sieve and with all those bonnet vents the engine electrics will be drowned just before a track day. My other option is to bring the Bentley and the Church Stretton roads are just too narrow for this leviathan; so, I would rather not.

Plus, indoor eating would not be my preferred option just yet, as I have an elderly parent to look after.

Nigel, accommodation offer is still on so no worries.

Ranjan.

Now there is an idea dear boy.
If you meet me at your flat location in Birmingham you could unpack, settle in, have a rest, and we could leave at your pleasure. Or if you come early we could have a spot of lunch. I will have to leave for a meeting at 2pm though.
You decide.

That's an idea Ranjan and would mean I could set up my CPAP Machine before we drive off to the Meet :thumleft:
