Clive, that's great news, we're pleased that you've managed to book for the Scottish section on the 30th/31st. We'll confirm our RV nearer the event.
Is this a group ride as wanting to join others to do this but looks like people are doing there own thing!
Can people post where they are starting and finishing so I can make my mind up which way round to do this. Sounds like fun although a sore arse may be the order of the day! Is this going to be motorway miles as don’t really like motorways. I assume a hotel with an accommodating bar would be advisable after a hard days riding.
Nick, thanks for your interest. I think it will be quite awhile before we have a full idea of who's starting and finishing at which bridges etc. I can only speak about our plans at the moment. We'll be avoiding motorways wherever possible but there's a few short sections included our route planning. Our choice of accommodation is based on 'long distance traveller friendly' check-in times at reception. Spean Bridge Hotel is 14:00 to 23:30, Holiday Inn Preston South is 14:00 to 23:00 and The Crown, Aldbourne is 14:00 to 23:00. All three locations have bars open till late and; at the time of booking on the 29th December, had a good selection of rooms available. I would advise booking accommodation sooner rather than later because of high demand on a Bank Holiday weekend. Hope that helps
