A chance for old friends and new friends alike to get together and go a ride in North Devon, helping raise funds for Richard Rowe, who suffered paraplegia in a motorcycle accident in 2023
WHAT IS IT?
The Reunion weekend is one of the first events of the season and just a chance for people to come together - camp or bunkhouse - do a little riding, eat some food and talk about motorcycles and adventure.
It's primarily aimed at people who have either been on a Garbage Run, took part in the Grand Challenge or been down to a riding experience at Dorothy's. But the doors are always open to new riders who just want to come down and find out what it's all about.
WHEN IS IT:
5-7th April 2024
WHAT WILL INEED TO BRING?
A road legal bike - trail or road - a sleeping bag if you plan on staying in the bunkhouse and tent and sleeping mat on top of that if you plan on camping.
The bunkhouse and camping are all on the same site, with a large sheltered seating area and space inside if the weather turns bad.
WHAT'S THE FORMAT?
It's a simple format; turn up Friday at your leisure, we'll eat Friday night, ride out Saturday, eat Saturday night and all head home Sunday.
Food is all included. It'll just be a communal feed - a BBQ one of the nights - with options for vegetarians and vegans throughout. Lunch on the Saturday will be out on the road, which you'll get yourself.
There'll be a keg on the evening with a donation pot for the fund raising.
£50 of every ticket price from this event will go towards Richard Rowe, a rider and good friend of Dorothy's who was badly injured in a motorcycle accident in the Alps in July 2023. So far Dorothy's community has raised almost £50,000, with that helping he and the family towards home conversions, lightweight wheelchairs, and if he so wishes, a Can Am to get him back out on the road.
The main riding day will be the Saturday, with GPX files provided for a mix of routes including main roads, back road lanes, and a couple of green lane options. All will aim to meet at a single point for lunch.
HOW MUCH IS IT?
It's £95 for camping, £115 for bunkhouse. There may be option for an additional stay on the Thursday night. TBC.
The ticket price is minus the £50, which I ask you bring on the day in cash, to avoid losing the fees that fundraising sites and booking sites such as Wix take from every booking.
Pillions welcome; £70 for camping; £90 for bunkhouse (£50 from each going to Rich Rowe.
