2 minutes spent printing the route while I was waiting for the kettle to boil :wink: and I am not even going on the ride :lol:

When all else fails you can rely on the written word.


Hope you all enjoy the day...

It took slightly longer, but I've had it tattoo'd on the inside of my eyelids. :cry:

Weather looks good so it won't matter if it takes langer, just put the final destination in your TomTom and meet there if you get lost...

I find ITN converter better than Tyre. It seems to handle the larger routes better.

Another thing you can do is plot the route above in Google Maps and then once down put that URL into ITN Converer and output it in the format you choose.

No wonder you did the Knowledge and learnt the routes in London just so you don't need to use a satnav! :lol:

Spider.............. where do I start, if you're neither leading a group or tail ending why are you worried where the route goes. We have a thing called the marker system. Never fails.

Great day out today John, thanks ever so much thoroughly enjoyed myself. Thanks also to Stuart (Daniels)for tail ending on the way out, and Stuart (Gray) for sweeping up on the way home.

Great weather, roads, friends and location - what more could you want :D :D :D

i do various routes out to bath. via baldock. chipping norton the 361 burford bit through to marlborough then the old a4. that's a well sorted road. its good 2c variations of a theme as todays route was slightly different to mine. now if i may old chap. whilst on that subject i wud like to say. thanks to the leaders, sweepers, route planning and checking it out a few days before hand by john and audrey. not forgetting the smooth overtaking an smiling boat races. it was also flipping hot.

We're pleased everyone enjoyed the day and the weather. It was hot and I confess to thinking about paddling in the river Windrush, that was until Doug tried it a remarked how b****y cold it was.

Good to see so many girls out and enjoying themselves; to think Audrey was the only one last year! Great also to the some Associates, including a couple of mine. Special congratulations to Amanda, home to Bourton on the Water and back, best part of 300 miles, the highest she's ever done in a day.

Our sincere thanks to everyone who came along, we're delighted you all had a good day and our special thanks to Geoff for leading the other boys group and to both Stuart's (Daniels and Gray), Richard and Doug for sweeping.

Looking forward to next year.
