No problem. As long as you don't give bogus directions!

£2.70! Stuff that, it's only £1.50 for the Dartford crossing.

I've checked the routes, and it's only 15 minutes longer going the long way around. Saves a fiver for other things :lol:

The uproar of them increasing it to £3 (£6 total) didn't go down too well either. It does split north/south bank quite a lot.

Unfortunately the Government will not write of the money it cost to build (and the rapidly increasing interest) like they where suppose to I think.

To be fair though it is longer than the whole Dartford tunnel/bridge I think and it takes a week to have as much traffic as the Dartford setup.

Says it'll rise Oct 1st ofr anyone interested.

Booo, not looking forward to it going up as it will cost me even more to go see my mate in scunny, might have to think about biking to his in the future as its only 24 miles, but its all down winterton road which is a silly fast road so i wouldnt really want to play with the cars down there on a push bike lol

Bing Maps (used to be Multimap) is very good. Set the map type to OS (top left of the map image) and you can see footpath's as a green dotted line.

I have the basis of this ride mapped out on bing maps
First Chris created in in mapmyride, I then exported and imported it into bing maps and altered it a bit to brake the longish road section up (it a nice road section and a good leg stretch after the pub stop, once you've climbed the little hill ;))
