The GPZ500 UK OWNERS FORUM.COM http://gpz-500.com/index.php Easter meet/ride will take place on Bank Holiday Monday, 6th April.

The route will be from Bolton Abbey to Settle via Pateley Bridge, Masham, Leyburn, Hawes,and Ribblehead, taking in some excellent roads and scenery. Along with cafe stops for the mandatory Bacon Barm, :D

ALL are welcome along whether on a GPZ or not, and whether forum members or not.
The aim of the ride is just to get out and enjoy ourselves. As was last years ride, this will be well attended, several member's already coming with others penciled in.

Anyone wanting to come along either check out the meet/ride thread on the forum or, drop me a PM on here.

A couple of pic's from last years ride,

I googled your meet spot.... your rural, green, beautiful countryside impresses me yet again. Looks like nice riding roads surrounding, as well. Hope your meet/ride/ bacon barms a success.

What a brilliant day out, :D
Left home in cold damp fog, and was sweating and basking in glorious sunshine when we stopped for a brew.
A good day's riding, with good friends, on good roads, What could be better, :D :D :D
Now we are planning something a bit special for the Spring Bank holiday...watch this space, ;), :D :D :D

Just a couple of pic's,

Not sure how old that bridge is, but it is old.

Stopped at Ribblehead for a quick stretch and get some pic's. This in the background is Ribblehead Viaduct. A magnificent bit of engineering, built (IIRC) from 1870 to 1874. Very little work could be done on it in winter, it get's pretty wild up there.

You would be in heaven on that road Duc, 1 of the top 5 rated "best biking road's" in England. Also one of the deadliest, big sign's everywhere "29 rider fatality's in the last three years"....it's actually 33 now, those signs are from last year.

Lunty- LFC missed one this weekend. We had a golden opportunity to move a little closer to 4th place but that loss to Aston Villa really hurt us.

At least Man U lost yesterday. LOL.

I could see where folks would become "enthused" riding there. The big, wide open spaces offer plenty of distant vision...beautiful.
