    Bit of a Nicolai Meet in the UK 7 / 8 June

    Hi All

    A date has been set down for 7 / 8th June in Dorking, Surrey, England

    I am flying from New Zealand for this weekend So no Nicolai pikers from England, no excuse not to come ride..

    5c0tty - Can you give us a little info on the trails, terrain, what to expect etc...

    Does anyone know what the B&B accommodation is like in this area..

    I will arrive into Stansted and will hook up with Boozz, we will make our way to Dorking (what a name) on Friday 6th June....

    At this point I think we have Boozz, 5c0tty & Karve...... Am sure we can get a few more, chinaman are you keen????

    Closest bike shop - Head for The Hills

    Feel free to add any pertinent information that can help us....

    Cool! Would be good to see you. Not so good about the knee surgery though. Is that because of the argument you had with the tree some time back? Hope you can kick some ass through rehab and be fit enough in time to ride!

    Sounds good, although I feel like Whafe with all the 'Air Miles' courtesy of the Royal Air Force. However, an MRI scan will decide my fate next week and yes I am going to cut the f*****g tree down! I am sure i will be able to come down, riding or not I will bring some Nicolai Bike Porn!

    Thats the spirit....

    Yeah, I fly to the USA on Friday, have a meeting in Ca, fly to NZ on Sunday evening, arrive in NZ on Tuesday morning, be there 5 or 6 days then turn around and head back the the USA, then onto Spain, be there a few days, then onto the Nicolai ride in DORKING...

    Its all about the ride and the commitment to the lads...

    Any other peeps going to come out of the woodwork to join us I wonder on Nicolais....

    ... and for all you FRs out there ...

    not close to chicksands, but enough to get some air space between your wheels and the ground.

    was trying to create an effect of the height ... a bit difficult to get a perspective on photographs

    there is actually 2 ramps here (pix above) to get airborne on ...

    but of course the next time we should have some of you guys airborne in them ...

    Sweet.. talking details i can definitely do one long day in the saddle.. just trying to wangle the car for the other one as I live on the other side of the M25! Deffo there for one big fat day at the minimum.

    Had a thought actually.... I might drop Dan a line at head for the hills and send him a link to this thread.. he must have 20+ nicolai riders on his books. Ill see if he fancy's mentioning the get together so we can swell the numbers a bit. check the Nics in his custom build page

    http://www.head-for-the-hills.co.uk/...ds_gallery.htm

    I know the uk http://www.nicolai-uk.com/ boys ride the N Downs too... ill drop them a note to reference the thread.

    Richard who runs this http://www.mountain-bike-guiding.co.uk/ rides a Nic as well. Bumped into him down Peaselake one time.. ill give him a poke!

    Whafe + Anybody who needs somewhere to stay.
    I will get you some B&B Info during the next day or so.
    If everybody is happy to do some miles on the bike its possible to plan so great tracks that will take in stop points for good food, tea's cake etc etc...
    All the trails in the photo's are in easy reach of Dorking Town so it can be a hub to start from in the morning and we only need to end up there in the evening to park the bikes up and sort stuff out to then allow us a night out in town for some beer and good food.
    Its going to be Great.
    I will find out if Head for the Hills can look after a bike or two to save them going back to B&B's or Hotel rooms. They are closed today so will ask about this in the morning.
    Its my B-day on the 10th so this is a great pre Birthday Treat...

    Hey Whafe, I'm up for the weekend, not sure If I can ride yet, will have to play it by ear. MRI scan next tuesday so fingers crossed. Let me know what B&B you are staying in, I could even travel down with you and Booze as I only live 30 minutes north of stansted. Let me know your plans and I will book in where you guys are going. If you need any other info, you know my email Whafe?
