I rode up to the Back to Basics camp a couple of years back when it was held in Gloucestershire and a very fine event it was too. Alas I was away for work last year and so it will be as well this year. Here's the flyer for the 2017 event, held in Yorkshire this time and well worth attending if you have a free weekend. Do note the bit though about pre '77 bikes and it being a tent only event. If you do go along, enjoy it and maybe send a few photos this way for the blog...
To be held at The New Inn
Cropton, near Pickering, North Yorkshire. YO18 8HH
The venue for the 2017 camp is at one of the southern gateways to the beautiful North Yorkshire Moors where there is an abundance of wonderful motorcycling roads and spectacular scenery.
The idea is to simulate a motorcycle rally as of the 1960’s and 70’s when all makes and models of motorcycles congregated with their owners for a weekend of 2 and 3 wheeled enjoyment. This site is a bit more basic than in previous years whereas although it has 24/7 male and female toilets with washing facilities, there are no showers.
Previous camps have been resounding successes so there is no reason why this one should be different.
This Summer Camp is open to all pre 1977 motorcycles, classed as “Historic Vehicle” which must be ridden to the event. Trailers and vans will not be permitted and as it is a “Tent Only” event caravans, campervans and motor homes will not be allowed on the campsite.
The pub itself will be serving meals all weekend and as we will be supplying free tea and coffee, you can travel light if you wish and leave the cooking equipment at home….but make sure you bring your own cup.
We hope that you can join us at this, our 4th. Historic Bike Summer Camp and make it as memorable as in previous years. So strap your tent to the back of your bike and have yourself a great weekend amongst like-minded folk.
