LOFO ride and woodland camp over 2021
« on: 23 October 2020, 09:33:01 pm »
Hello LOFO's.... What with this year being a bit of a wash out with Covid and all the restrictions that come with it, I'm going to put it out there for a meet, ride out and camp over for next year in the spring or summer.


I'm in the process of purchasing a private woodland and it's pretty central to all my favourite roads in the south east and just before the start of the 272 to Loomies from Tunbridge Wells.


Anyway, I'm thinking we could meet up, set up camp and acquire supplies of beer, cider and food then head out for a ride round the Kent and Sussex twisties or head west to Loomies, whatever we decide.


In the evening we could head back to the woods, drink and eat and generally talk bollocks round the campfire in a truly magical and private woodland setting.


Let me know if you're up for it and we'll keep this thread going and fine tune arrangements.


As usual, being a LOFO ride, nothing is set in stone so if necessary, we'll  just wing it.


I think we could all do with a weekend blow out after all this year has thrown at us and this has got to be a good way of leaving it all behind.


What do you say Foccers ? Who's up for it ?

 :thumbup  Good one Robbo.  I'll see if the usual suspects get on board later. I know a few of them no longer have Fazers so I might give them a text.

Dazza,


I'll be up for that, still got the Fazer but don't use it much now I've got the Mutley and probably even less soon, as I pick up a 1100 Scrambler sport tomorrow.

That's sweet mate, you know it's going to be a hard choice deciding which one to take. Pics of the scrambler please when it happens  :)
Let's get the old gang together and have a blow out.
Now where's Red, Kitcrazy, Harry Hornby and Midden ?

@Dazza, I don't live that far from you up in Hertfordshire so this sounds like a nice idea. When are you looking at doing this? and how will Covid rules be handled..?

This isn't going to happen until spring/summer so hopefully Covid restrictions would have been relaxed by then.
At the moment we're in tier 4 so until that changes it isn't going to happen (unless you all bring a saw and say you're  forestry workers) :lol

But on a serious note if Covid is still a concern, I have the capability to take temperatures on arrival.( If you'd like it done rectally, my brother would love to accomodate you  :evil )


Anyone who records a temperature of 37.8 or higher will not be allowed to stay and will be directed to the nearest Covid test centre for their own safety and peace of mind as well as ours.
Hand sanitizer will be available on site as well as sanitising wipes.

Masks will be worn when social distancing isn't possible but ultimately we're all responsible adults so are expected to act responsibly according to the Covid threat.
This is a large woodland venue and solo camping or individual hammocks are advised.
If anyone is suffering from symptoms or is concerned about their safety due to age or underlying health reasons then they should take the decision not to attend or leave the group if they don't feel secure at any time.
Obviously, this is subject to any restrictions at the time which may or may not allow this to happen.

Well, what with restrictions starting to be lifted and summer just round the corner, I thought I'd bump this thread up with some visual teasers of the woodland venue.
My bikes haven't turned a wheel this year what with Covid and other commitments so looking forward to blowing off the two wheel cobwebs.....Bring it on !  8)
