AUDAX UK REUNION 2018
« on: September 13, 2018, 01:00:31 am »
The AUK website states the venue and that bookings will open in 2018.
There's usually a booking form and notice with the August (now September) Arrivée.
I see Dinner Darts are listed in the Calendar but can't see anything else, anywhere.

What have I missed?

For a number of years a couple of us have ridden a multi-day tour to the reunion.  However during the last two years we failed to actually arrive.  Last year we found ourselves in France.  I blame GPS navigation.

I would like to make plans, which might involve other AUKs...

Two months ahead is not excessive IMHO.

Speaking to Martin on the Audax Ecosse FB page it seems that some information will be coming out immanently.

I have booked. There seems scant free text opportunity.
I've stated I need wheelchair access and am willing to share a room.
I do hope any crip room won't expect my room mate to share the bed with me...

I booked some time ago, but it seems I have the wrong place and the wrong date.  Never mind.

Await stories of travel fun, fun fun!

I haven't completely ruled out going to the right place as well.  This year is the first time we've got not only the wrong destination but also the wrong date, so that does free-up possibilities.  It depends on when EWCC's do is (and they need to get their act together as well).

I'm borrowing a Brompton having never ridden one. Potter from Edinburgh, possibly on that old railway line north of the Forth and return via Falkirk Wheel and Kelpies. Whether to brave the 50k or 100k social ride though?  :P

I recommend Falkirk Wheel & Kelpies

This is whats known as a super long shot but.... is anybody likely to be driving in from the immediate vicinity of Largs?

(and if you don't know where Largs is, then the chances are that you aren't!)

[OT] I know where Largs is.
I am not driving.

But Largs and Millport turned me into a cyclist.

In 1975.

I dont recall seeing a Largs (or even Greater Largs) address in any of my events, or met anybody on an event who lives in or near Largs.  Think you’ll be on the train.

  Edit - of course you know that Bridge of Allan station is closer to Stirling Uni than Stirling station is.    :thumbsup:

Ride down from Stirling - about 90km, depart ~1pm (yes, I know, it will be dark by 2:30...) then train back.

What could possibly go wrong...

Edit: Gazumped... so no 'Key Largos' for me. :)

I'm travelling up with Barry Parslow on Friday but leaving with Helly around lunchtime on Sunday. Barry is on the Caledonian Sleeper from Edinburgh with HK but she is riding there from Stirling on Sunday. He is a big boy and happy to get from Stirling to Edinburgh solo but I was wondering if anybody was going between the two on Sunday afternoon and if they would welcome some company.
Wheel meet again, don't know where, don't know when...

I would welcome company.... on the 12.47 from Stirling, gets to Edinburgh 13.41. Too early perhaps?
