Ride to Glory!

Defo reckon we should copy that! Going to Europe in my car is a pretty bad idea, not only because of the cost but because we WILL die and it will probably break down or get stolen! Then we are fucked! I'm still up for it but think that this is a better idea:

After the roadtrip we go on a seperate trip with a massive tick list of tricks and stupid stuff, we split into say three teams of three (maybe some more if we want some Newcastle boys involved) each with a video camera and then say each team writes down 50 or so things to do like toothy hanger, f*ck a dog, you know how it works but I think there should be so many it's impossible to complete it all so you really have to be selective and the videos won't get repetative! Start in York maybe and there is no set route, go wherever you like in 7 days (?) but I reckon end in Newcastle where you have 2 days to edit (?) and get your ticklist together! Prizes for most ticked off and best edit showing all these things! I don't think I can think of anything more fun to be honest! Teams split up in accordance to skill levels! Write what you reckon in the comments...

sounds a plan, like seperate people into diff levels of riding ability, then put each into a seperate group, each team should get a filmer and photographer too!

Jonny said...

Was thinking that but car space is an issue! Unless there was only two teams but that would be mad competetive! Hmmmmm...two teams in a car convoy would be crazy and a lot more fun on the road...
Depends what people think, we'll see who's in first...

robbie said...

loving this idea.

Tom said...

hmmm, time off work is an issue, i.e. I don't have any, but if you tell me when everyone else is wanting to go, I might be able to blag that week off, so in theory, I'm good for all summer apart from Leeds Fest (August bank holiday weekend)

Jonny said...

Well what if we did one or the other Tom? You were gunna take the time off for the roadtrip anywayz!
I was thinking 10 days though, 7 days doing whatever you want, 2 days editing and one day where all the teams get together and ride street (no cameras) and then depending on how much cash everyone has all go out for a meal and then drinking before heading home!
If it came down to it what would evryone pick out of the two, this trip or stock roadtrip! They each have their pros and cons!

Jonny said...

Ok, so I propose either Sunday 27th of July until Tuesday the 5th August(as I go on holiday the 8th) or Tuesday the 26th of August until Thursday the 4th of September (weather will be worse and when if freshers week/Waudby back at school?)
Anyone's thoughts! Waudby has no internet but I'll ring him Saturday and get his dates, think he is away start of July so these dates should be fine!

scott said...

second set of dates dont work, as that is leeds fest, even though in not goin!but i can do the other ones, i cant do the 17th of july either!

Jonny said...

I went on the website and it said Leeds Fest was over then! What are the actual dates for it?

Jonny said...

Oh also, only I can drive! That could be a problem....anyone have a solution?

robbie said...

i drive too mate. first dates are better for me. i think if it comes down to it i would rather just do a standard roadtrip, i know that sounds a bit boring but it would be cool to hang out with everyone, if we can only do one of the two.

Jonny said...

Yeah that's what I was thinking, this is a bit segregated! It would be soooo much fun but stock roadtrip means we all ride together everyday! That's why I added the no cameras thing on the last day but up to the majority! I'm not sure which I'd pick...

Jonny said...

Ok, I made a choice but I'm happy to go with the majority:

I think in my opinion the Ride to Glory trip wins as the roadtrip is better in the fact that everyone is there but this is just so new and everyone is already coming up to ride Newcastle for a week and stay up there anyway so we’ll ride together everyday then! Also the proposed roadtrip plan means the only new place we are hitting is Bristol which could easily be made into a weekend trip some other time! I think this will be insane and the videos produced will be hilarious and give good memories for a long time to come! That and the fact I’m gunna win!!
If we invite Tom Bright and Pete Greaves then 3 teams! That will be insane!

waudby said...

Im agreed with robbie. A stock roadtrip sounds better to me! However why not set a series of tasks for the 1 big team or something like that! best of both worlds! ill check my dates for u jonny but im at my dads so i cant find them out until monday! ill ring u! also i should be driving by then! SKODA FABIA ALL THE WAY!

Jonny said...

Waudby you crack head you said you'd prefer Ride to Glory last night! Scott and Angus are more down with that so I guess it's mainly resting on Tom but that would still make a draw...
It seems the only dates we can all do are the 27th of August to the 5th of September!

Jonny said...

Jack hammer!

waudby said...

I dunno I just think that it ll be more fun if every1s all together so that more crazy stuff happens!

Jonny said...

What?!? How will more crazy stuff happen if we don't have a ticlist involving burning down buildings and shaving cats and an actual route to stick to?
There are only maximum 6 going on the main roadtrip so splitting into two 3s is hardly a split really...
If we could find 6 Huds riders (as Scott said they were interested) or Newcastle ones we could even have a York team! All 6 of us vs 6 other people or two smaller teams?
