    Nicolai's and Friends in Dorking 7th and 8th June.

    Hi to all.

    It looks like the plan is to ride from Head for the Hills in Dorking from 10am on Saturday morning. The plan is to ride for the whole day on Saturday with stops for Lunch, Jumps, Drop ins, Photo shots etc etc... And the same sort of deal on Sunday but not for the whole day.
    Maybe a 10am start on Sunday but this has not been confirmed yet.

    Please can you add you name to the list if you are coming and state 1 day or 2 days.
    If you need to have your bike stored over night and if you would like to join us for dinner on the Saturday night.

    Name and Forum Tag. Sat. Sun. Bike Storage. Dinner Saturday night. Nicolai Owner

    Scott/5c0tty Yes Yes No Yes Yes
    Tom/NA Yes Yes? No ?

    Does anybody know a better way of doing this on this forum ? This is going to get very hard to read and work out..

    From across the hills ...

    David / Chinaman
    Saturday
    No Sunday
    No bike storage
    Possibly
    Nicolai owner

    5cotty ... assuming Lorni is joining us and he will still have a raw knee, anyway we can move the bikes closer to the trails ... how many bike can you carry on your car, Karve & HeiHei? I have a spare rack for one more bike. So if i take Whafe's bike, we have yours and Boozzz's bike that need space somewhere assuming that Lorni will have a car as well ... might be a bit too much ... hmm

    i usually carry all my tools in my boot which helps if one of us might need it out on the trails if the cars are close by ... like at the car park just outside of Holmbury St Mary.

    if not then HFTH is good as well ...

    If Lorni is joining us ! Fingers crossed that he will be well enough to do so.
    Would it make sense for Lorni to meet us mid way round or at a couple of locations on the way round for the good area's that will be easy going on his knee. Maybe Leith Hill as there is lots of fun to be had up there.

    Karve, heihei

    Where do you intend to park your car? Karve the last time I met you, you mentioned you parked at Westcott, is it on this map?

    How about the parking lot between Westcott and Dorking?

    The hotel that Whafe and the lot will be staying is next to Dorking station, so will see you there at 9:45.

    Man, why is England that far away from Germany for a weekend trip ? Or: why am I still in University and not like Whafe a big-...-excecutive with loads of bonus-miles on my Lufthansa Miles-and-More Bonus-Card.

    No it isn't. Come fly to Stansted on Easyjet this Friday and I'll pick you up . Even my brother, also a student, could afford to come over for just a weekend from Holland. No excuses...

    Book on SleazyJet, cheap as chips................ Some things in life have to be done, thats my attitude, being from New Zealand, it is a treat to be able to fly less that 2 hours and ride with some peeps.....

    Things dont need to be expensive, you get your butt over to the UK, accommodation will be sorted, so all good...............

    Thanks, we will have a great weekend.... You should still look at the possibility of coming across really.......

    Be hard to get this many Nicolai FR's together again for some time....

    But understand if you cannot make it..... For me when an opportunity comes up to ride with new people, I jump at it, for sure it is a hassle at times to organise the time etc, but it always out weighs the hassle........

    Will be a classic early summer UK day. Hope so, only have white riding shorts and t shirt.....
