    Sorry this is my first post but it was suggested by Chipps to post on here…so who am I to argue.

    Ive been roped in to give a presentation (not my natural habitat) to potential accommodation providers on the new section of Pennine Bridleway. I'm to give the mountain bike riders perspective of what we require from them.
    Doing some research it seems, safe cycle storage and bike wash facilities, are high up the list of must haves. I've added some more of my own, to help me get some feedback could you score them 1 to 10 with 1 being most important.

    Lockable cycle storage

    Bike washing facilities

    Kit washing and drying facilities

    Basic bike spares (tubes etc)

    Easy Access to Pub/local amenities

    Food and energy drinks for the next days ride

    Drying room

    Locally sourced food for evening meal and breakfast

    En-suite

    TV

    You can email your answers and any other requirements (maps of local area, bike stand/workshop etc)to:

    william.brady@lancashire.gov.uk

    Thanks for your help in advance

    There seems to be some confusion over the numbering – 5thelephant (and me) were ranking stuff from 1-10 and others are giving marks out of ten.

    So it's – 1 is good, 10 is worst? OK, got it!

    No HARD fried eggs in the breakfast – why do B&B's everywhere serve hard fried eggs, it's not difficult to cook an egg even if it is for a group!

    I took that into account when I read yours as you put TV at 1 and lockable storage at 10!

    The more info the better so feel free to tell your mates and email me your personal preferences to

    Twin bedded rooms. I have booked in several times into b&bs where I have made sure they understood it was a group of blokes who DID not want to share a bed, yet when we got there we ended up in double rooms with one in the bed and one on a camp type bed on the floor. OK we didn't have to share a bed but somebody in each room definitely got the short straw.

    My marks conform to the marking system (although I appear to have different priorities to most).
