    Hello again

    Well done for posting in exactly the right section. I thought there were more suggested routes here but apparently not!

    I did a canny run up to Coldstream recently:

    http://www.ducati-upnorth.com/forum/showthread.php?20920-A-Run-North-to-Knockhill-Thumbs-up-for-ERS

    Other fun routes:

    Alston, Hartside cafe - especially via the A69 as Langley Castle is well worth calling in for afternoon tea - seriously! Bikers very welcome.

    For a longer run, then back to Alston and down to Barnard Castle via the B6277, sketchy in places (gravel) but good views and quiet roads.

    Elsewhere, the infamous 'Helmsley TT' route is still fun, avoid weekends, sadly - A19 South to the A174 (full 360 leaving the exit!), then B1365 to quaint Stokesley, good fish & chips on the high street, then for main course the B1257 road, careful up Clay Bank, then as much 'progress' as you care to make... for the next 14 miles.

    Helmsley is great to wander around, a castle and hidden outdoor heated swimming pool, I discovered recently. Rievaulx Abbey is nearby for a stop off or return the same way.

    You probably know of the Wetlands meets Wed/Sun at the Wildfoul Centre on the A1231, but shutting down for winter soon I imagine.

    Any other routes, I'd be glad to know of myself, check out ...

    Just checked, seems Sun 26th is the last meeting of 2014, 6pm.

    Follow the 'Duck' road signs, you'll be fine - slowly in as Kids live in the top houses , apparently.

    Might even have a ride up myself for a cuppa, some Ducatis do get there, chatted to a guy with a sweet 900ss ie and seen a nice 1098s also.

    NO toilet facilities by the way, the park is closed already.

    I go to the Wetlands bike meet most weeks, and through June - Sept it can get busy. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cKVgsZ-vL7I Arrivals begin at around 5pm, and it's often filled by 6pm. However, there will be very few there tonight IMHO. The last few meetings of the year generally involve small groups of die-hards standing around in semi-darkness! (..although the car park is better lit now than it's ever been).

    Sadly, a 13 hour nightshift & staying up to watch MotoGP took their toll - hope it was worth the trip!
