UKMOC Weekender 2016 (29 April - 1 May): now booking

Andy & I are pleased to announce that the UKMOC 2016 Weekender will be based at the Metropole Hotel & Spa (https://www.metropole.co.uk/home.html), Llandridnod Wells, right in the heart of Wales.

It wil be held over the early May bank holiday weekend (Friday 29, Saturday 30 April, Sunday 1 May).

The hotel is used to welcoming car and bike clubs, being on the doorstep of some classic biking roads (the well-known A483 Crossgates to Newtown starts only a few miles north of the hotel). We hope this Weekender will give you the chance to discover some of Britain's best biking roads, on some longer ride outs, which Andy has enjoyed putting together.

But in the unlikely event you don't fancy riding, the hotel has a swimming pool and spa, to which we'll have access. As well as the hotel bar, there is a specialist real ale bar, Arvon Ales, just across the road (which Andy also felt he ought to investigate on a recent recce!).

The hotel has 110 rooms (of which they have set aside 12 twins, 12 doubles and 4 singles for us). There are standard/classic rooms, or you can pay a little more for a superior, or splash out for one of the double rooms in the tower.

The rates include dinner, bed & breakfast for Friday & Saturday nights. If you also want to stay the Sunday night, the rate for Sunday is bed & breakfast only, as there are other restaurants close to the hotel which we thought you might want to try.

The booking form is available to download here: http://andrewcawte.webspace.virginme...OKING_FORM.pdf

We need initial deposits of 30 per person by the end of November please.

If you've never been to the Weekender before, don't worry - you'll be welcomed and make new friends! Every regular was once a Weekender virgin!

Any queries, please contact me or AndyC_772

We look forward to seeing you at the Weekender!

There is a precedent here... you wouldn't be the first to show up on a bike that's not a Monster. I'm certainly in no position to complain!

If you get stuck, you can borrow my 695, and I'll bring the ugly black bike instead

It would be great to see more than the regular peeps next year too on their Monsters. Hope this will be a great event. The location and hotel looks great.

Deposit sent, form will be sent on Monday

We stayed at the hotel last year, lovely rooms, good food, and the pool and spa was superb, will be very good for the non riding 'plus ones'

Just got to find my speedos.....

I'd like to come over for this. Is there anyone from Herts/Beds/Cambs that also want to ride over together? I'll book it anyway next week.
