The weekend of the 21/22 June could work for me but not the following
weekend. However the 21/22 is the weekend after the London to Brighton ride
so I may not be wish to tromp up the hills.

I'm thinking about setting up a Snowdonia weekend, so anyone interested in
that should get in touch with me. I'll make sure it doesn't conflict with
any Lakes weekend. I was thinking of a long weekend starting 19 July and the
plan would be to camp.
