well today i joined 35 other riders in a charity ride from horncastle to barton, we did the 50 miles via the viking way.organised by local bike shop rusty's, they did a stirling job, food stops etc ......and maps, very very helpful :facepalm: lol.

got 3 punctures, lost 2-3 times and really enjoyed it, weather was shit hot!!!

rek weve raised over 3k for prostate cancer!!!!

ps, the 200gs thumbies worked a treat :wink:

Well done, Longun, sounds like a good ride despite all the probs :? and great to have raised so much for a really good cause. :lol: :lol:
Wish we'd have known, we'd have come to wave you off before we set off from Horncastle over the Wolds.
You're right - the weather was fab.

If it's the Viking Way then just look on a map as it's printed on it ;)

You've done from somewhere south of South Ferriby to the Bridge (where it stops) and probably other parts of it.

Well done for doing raising the £3k !
