    Right, I've pushed the boat out for this one! Due to the distance from mine I've booked the Saturday night in Kirkby Stephen at the Black Bull, dunno what it's like but it was cheap and central.

    So I'll be fuelled by a full english on the Sunday πŸ™‚

    I got a single room :cry:, for Β£30 through laterooms.com, doubles were Β£55 I think.

    More the merrier, then I get drinking buddy's on a saturday night away, and maybe even some of these fabled waitresses in short skirts.

    Providing lowey does'nt get lost we should be back in daylight πŸ˜‰

    Looks like a Scots invasion – hope you all get past passport control πŸ™‚

    Keith, ran the idea past the wife and she suggested I keep on running with it.

    Dang. I could almost taste the ale!

    Given your preparations for the last ride she has a point though.

    DON'T PANIC!

    All in hand – having a test ride on Sunday to finalise which bits we are doing and so that all the Darlo crowd know the route. I will post up a roll call thread Mon night to remind everyone of times and location and get an idea of numbers – looks to be 25-30ish from the replies to this thread – now if someone has a direct line to a weather fairy and can book us a good day we will be sorted.

    Getting some grief from some of the Dumfries crowd re info, some are not forum dwellers. Relying on me to pass on info πŸ™„

    Could a newbie come on this ride.
    i have ridden a couple of long rides, one was 4 hours on the trans pennine trail near barnsley.
    i am pretty fit.

    Bombadillo – the pace is distinctly relaxed on these rides – if you are riding regularly you should be fine but as its a large group they do tend to take all day

    Do not claim to be pretty fit on a DeeJAY ride …school boy error. He will now start adding killer climbs ,just to laugh at us all. The race to be last is more competitive that the race to be first.

    someone told me the cake on these rides is particularly moist πŸ˜‰

    Graham / Mart, we doing the lift sharing thing again? Don't mind taking a turn with the driving if required, save Graham having to return all the stuff I left behind 😳 (ta for that).
