The announcement thread will be up today. Just wanted to wait until the Drumlanrig ride was done and dusted.

A few people have already said they will be staying over. There are B&B's in and around Hope and a big campsite a few hundred yards from the start point too.

Same start point and route as previous years, plus an option for a Sunday ride.

Will you be able to do a quiz on Saturday night Neil?

I might be staying over on the Friday night. It depends on a few things yet to be sorted. Bas is hoping to come over from Amsterdam for this but he needs to reschedule a few things to get the time away.
Either way Vegas and I are 100% doing the ride then heading down to Silverstone afterwards to enjoy a spot of motor racing.

Well done for advertising this on the Facebook site, I've missed this the last 3 years!

Where are we starting and how many miles is it?
Also, RC31 rigid or Bomber Z2 do you think?

I'm annoyed at missing this one but seeing as I'll be riding in Fuerteventura that week I guess I've got a close second ( :D )

Where are you thinking of camping Martin? Me, a few Yorkies and those MacRetro boys are camping on the saturday night. We were thinking Edale. I have volunteered to do Taxi runs after the pub quiz so distance isn't too much of a problem.

Also camping (even though it's my local Nat! :?), thought the site in Edale was a no-brainer? Sounds like a quality little posse 8)
