Personally - I think end of September, then no later than Middle of October.
We need to get our collective heads together - as it will take a little organising, and I don't want it costing too much money, but I think you will agree, there are too many of us to attend a BBQ in someones back garden (unless we get Lord De Ramsey riding with us in future)
Yes agree that there are too many to BBQ but I would prefer for the first one, a social in a pub in Ramsey where all of us can get to know each other. If we have partners then we'll group accordingly and maybe at first it'll be good to just do the cyclists? In addition, people can opt in and out as required and go on afterwards for a curry/kebab/disco/skinny dipping/et al as they wish.
