Fantastic! :D

I was originaly thinking of doing the ride in may or june, to take advantage of the longer days. And like I said, midweek to avoid crowds, and to make getting accomodation easier.

Any thoughts?

And a little something to inspire us....

So, I make that seven already!

Things we have to think about...

Getting to/from the start/finish.

Accom (It looks like there are a few B+Bs in amberley. DA-EVO which one did you stay in? Was it bike friendly i.e. Somewhere safe for bikes etc)

Do we need to drop things off at the B+B, or are we carrying what we need?

I propose we see how many show interest in the next few weeks, then meet up in the pub (or even better have ride, then go to the pub :lol: ), and start to make plans.

If people sent me there overnight kit, I can park at Amberly, but would need a lift to the start as I will probabuly drive home for the overnight. Dependign were every on lives not to difficult to get teh train back from Eastbourne along the coast to Brighton,Worthing, Littlehampton etc
