No, you've all paid for the accommodation plus bedding and towels all included, the only thing you'll need to pay for is a breakfast if you want one at £6 per day.
There's still a few places left so
Cheekysue and a couple of friends of ours (Lynne and Sandra) would like to come along and join us, is everyone OK with that ?

Hello everybloody :wave:

I am gonna try and show my face in one way or another.. I won't bore you with details but been quite an up and down past 18 months for me be it illness or depression... and when fed up I tend to become quite anti social.. I came off fartbook for 8 months, haven't ridden in over a year... but things are on the up... I have mentioned in the past to some of you either through the book of farts or in person that I wanted to move.. well it's all in the pipeline now, actually should of moved by now but a few bumps in the road that have slowed things up but still moving in the right direction.. Because of not knowing exactly what is happening move wise I can't really commit other than say I will at least try and make it for the Saturday ride out. If I do find myself with a free weekend at worst I can chuck my bike in my van and dosh in there but we'll see.. will try and hopefully will catch up with a few of you soon :thumbup:

Update
A couple of people have dropped out, and a few have added on.
So I would like to bring it to everyone's attention that there is only 1 place left at the Bunkhouse.

There's been a change in the way they do things at the Bunkhouse this year, and can only do breakfast on Saturday, not Sunday, so I'm going to ask Mark2000vtr, who is already getting the burgers, bangers etc to get some bacon eggs and baps so we can just do our own butties on Sunday if required, it will save messing around looking for a cafe.
If I've missed anyone off the list, get back to me as soon as possible.

Just as a reminder, this is where we are staying.

Kev has plotted a route here: https://www.plotaroute.com/route/925722

For those not familiar with how to get to the Bunkhouse.
Please note the sat nav will send you the wrong way, so only use it to get near by.
Here's the directions from the centre of Rhayader.
From the clock tower in the centre of Rhayader take the A44/A470 towards Llangurig for about 100 metres. On the right is Rhayader Leisure Centre, and a turning signed to St. Harmon, B4518. Take this road, for about 5 miles, passing through the village of St. Harmon, and on to the village of Pant-Y-Dwr. At the Mid Wales Inn turn right, signed Bwylch-Y-Sarnau. After almost a mile you will come to a turning on the right, just before a garage. Take this turn. Proceed for nearly half a mile and Woodhouse is on the right, as indicated by the finger post.

Meh.. although I was hoping to get up if only for the Saturday ride out it ain't gonna happen. Going to sell current bike that I use and have started messing with it getting ready to pass on but been so busy with work that I have had no time for doing my own stuff so have a bit I can't use and I haven't had time to do the last bits to it's replacement.. everything going well though and still will be moving later this year but with so much going on im guessing it's just easier to write off another year for riding/bike stuff for me... See no reasons why I won't be completely on top of my game by early next year.. actually quite excited about it all.. looking forward to getting some proper miles in.

Hope you all have a great weekend! :beer:
