#Super Peaks Meet “The Summer Social” Sun 19th June

The 2nd Super Peaks Meet of 2016 is upon us, if you attended the February run out to Buxton, or any of the previous 5 Super Peak Events, you’ll know that its one not to miss, and Junes’ Peaks Meet comes with added BBQ Awesomeness!!

#What is Super Peaks Meet?
The Combustionpunks Super Peaks Meets is a series of THREE organised drives around the Peak District throughout the year. February’s Super Peaks Meet, named “The Re-Happening” attracted over 50 vehicles from all over the country. Convoys were organised from Manchester, Birmingham, Nottingham, Sheffield and other cities. It was the first of 2016, and we’re planning things a little differently for the 2nd…

The “Re-Happening” can be reviewed on the website HERE

#Super Peaks Meet, The Plan…
June’s meet, “The Summer Social” will start off at the Carding Shed, leaving there taking a planned route through the peaks, stopping off for a coffee and regroup, another scenic route to Matlock baths for a parade lap, ending up at one of two locations to set up a communal Punks BBQ to end the meet!

So, important details and timings…

Nice to meet you.

I’m in the super mk1 shed with the black boot lid. Still loads to do to it.

And also… random fact… my neighbour works with/along side a “big hairy Welsh chap”… drives a red mx with big black stuck on arches…
