Will be leaving London E1 on Saturday*, to avoid being held up and ringfenced in, whilst skinny black blokes are being pursued by bods (who should know better) dressed as carrots.

May (or may not) see you at Thurrock.... If not, at the train.


*After watching the top of the table clash between Harleqins and Leicester at the Stoop.

Bonjour mon amies,

A request! As you make your way to Folkestone tomorrow morning please stop off at the "EARLY ARRIVALS" service area, watch for the sign, which is the interchange before the terminal, approximately 3 miles, and replenish your fuel. This will save us time on the other side.

The round trip is 140 miles so many will be able to complete the route without re-fuelling. Those, like me, who need to, can re-fuel in Le Touquet.

Bon voyage,

Geoff.

A grand day out.

Thank you for organising it Geoff. And 'thank you, too' to all the back markers and of course the bods in-betweenn the front and the back, who all played their part in making it good fun.

Richard

PS I hope to organise something similar before the year end..... Probably in mid-September or early October, before the clocks change.

Cheers for a good day out Geoff, even the rain couldn't stop the fun. I think we experienced almost every type of weather today except snow. Thanks to all for the great company, I think my bed is calling me now, that early start has done me.
See you all soon.

Thanks to you all,particularly Mike, Dave and Bruce for tailing and Richard for a new trial section and everyone else for making what could have been a kinda downbeat day, into, an eventually, real pleasant cold, wet, sunny and enjoyable day. I might just pull it forward a couple a weeks next year Mike and who knows, we might just get lucky and attract a few snowflakes. :lol:

Thanks all.

Geoff. :wink:

Thanks for instigating that Geoff. It turned out to be a most challenging ride to man machine and riding gear. My boots remained totally dry and my new Triumph suit leaked a very small amount which was no surprise considering how it rained. I didn't hear too many complaints about water ingress from the others. My only mistake was to remove my jacket inner lining before I left home - I was cold all day. 350 miles door to door I thoroughly enjoyed a day of extreme motor cycling. Thanks to the others who were good company.

Laura's first ride on the right and she thinks you can see more from the right side of the road :lol: :lol: It must be a women thing :roll: :roll:
I was suprised how restrained Mike was (must have been the rain) My rear tyre was still inflated when we got home so its a repair job this evening!!
Thanks all again.
Laura & Nigel
