Post Wednesday July 10th - Hopp Better Riding @ Cadwell
on: January 15, 2013, 10:19

Martin Hopp has published (on Email) the BRD dates for 2013. They are May 15th, July 10th and September.

I cannot make the May date as I will be in the Lakes, and September is too far away to think about.

I plan to do July 10th - REALLY looking forward to introducing my new bike to the pleasures of riding around Cadwell without traffic, junctions etc.

I am happy to organise 'stuff' like accommodation, probably the Black Horse in Donnington le Bain, but will need to know numbers. The plan is to ride up on the Tuesday as 100 miles before a 7.30am registration, do Cadwell, and then 100 miles ride home is, IMHO, too much to do all in one day.

If you want to try it but are not sure what it's going to be like then I'll be happy to wax lyrical for hours until you say "NO MORE, I'll do it, just stop going on about it". 😉 . If you don't want me to make your ears bleed then have a chat with Big Al, or Tall Ian and lots of others who have come away from Cadwell with the biggest smile on their faces - and no chicken strips! 😉

We spend all our time riding around doing our utmost to avoid being killed by all the other road users, road conditions and general mayhem and bedlam on the public highways. Doing Cadwell with Martin and his team of top rate instructors is an opportunity to experience what you and your bike are actually capable of doing, and have some real FUN!!!!!

Martin can't take any bookings until the website is up and running after a revamp. Once it's ready, the process is you book yourself onto the day and put in a box (somewhere on the screen) that you are in a group from NAM. If we are 10 or more then we get a discount (it was £10 per head).

It would be good to know who and how many are interested as early as possible so I can start thinking about booking accommodation.

Roll on July!

P.S. See posting for last years Cadwell day for more information.

Blimey, that was a quick response!

That makes two of us so I'd better book a room 🙂

Oh dear, what a quandry, do i really want to ride around and around a smooth track, getting the old girl over on the edge of the tyres, hitting 100+ in parts,having fun, no traffic, no pot holes, drain covers, on coming traffic, dozy drivers! its a difficult deceision! but I suppose as an observer i need to keep up my riding standards so i guess i am morally obliged to attend, so i suppose you had better count me in 😛

My back side will still be warm from this years tin butt challenge, keep an eye on the forum for further details, ( 650 -700 miles ) all welcome!

OK then, here we go.

I have just booked a twin room for Ian and myself, and Gazza and Alasdair will be sorting out their booking soon.

The cost of a twin room is £58 for the room and breakfast.

Any more for any more? Go on, you know it makes sense, and it's fun as well.

BTW, the Hopp website is still being redeveloped but should be ready soon to take bookings.

P.S. Gazza, I'm not sure posting that your backside will still be warm is a good way to encourage people to share a room with you! 😉

As my good lady is going to spectate, I have just been on the blower to the nice man at the B&B and booked a double room. Same price as twin for info.

So getting sorted - just need the Hopp site to be up and running so we can book the main event!

Looking forward to it!

I am all booked for the BRD 10 July!!

I'm sure there are a few people (hopefully reading this forum topic) that would enjoy taking part in the Hopp rider training "Better riding day" (BRD) but are thinking that track days aren't for them. I'm sure of this because that's what I was thinking this time last year (and a few others who went along last year) Peter done a great job of explaining how the day works and how it wasn't a Hooligans racing trackday! I will now try and explain it the best I can (give peter a break). The Martin Hopp BRD's aren't about racing. These are "better riding day's" not race days. they are all about learning more about your riding and having fun. Those that haven't ridden on track before may fear the "Rossi wannabe's" trying to pass you on the inside of every corner, This doesn't happen. there are strict rules regarding overtaking which everybody adheres to. There are three groups, A, B & C (A = more experienced C= Less experienced). these are then divided into sub groups and there is always a group that will suit you. and you can change if you or the instructors feel the need. There is no pressure to ride flat out, you ride at a pace that you are comfortable with as it is important that you enjoy the day. Cadwell Park is the perfect road to practice and you will learn so much from the excellent instructors, with the morning sessions being led by the instructors and the afternoon sessions riding without, (although you can still ride with an insructor in the afternoon if you wish).

These really are great days on track, All riders (snr observers to newcomers) guaranteed to learn something, and enjoy a great day. Lets see if we can get few more interested this year. I've probably missed loads of details but if you speak to anyone who's been before (Big Al, Nigel, Gazza, Tony, Peter or myself we will all highly recommend the Cadwell BRD's) The Martin Hopp website is now up and running Check it out for more info http://www.hoppridertraining.co.uk

Can't wait till July!!!!!!!

Just a quick update for info ...

The cost this year is £195.
However booking 3 months in advance gives a £20 discount which brings it down to the same cost as last year i.e. £175
Booking 2 months in advance gives a £10 discount making it £185.
We now have six people 'signed up' - me, Gazza, Ian, Alasdair, and two of Alasdair's mates. The more the merrier, and we get an additional discount for a group of ten or more. Come and have some fun!

OK, so now we are 7!

A friend of mine called Jim has booked. He rode with us last year. He is an Observer with one of the IAM groups in/near London.

Anyone else interested in having some serious FUN?!!!
