so far we have 29 booked in for the ride. we also have an driver par excellence isobel making a glorious return to the fold.

as we need to let the youth hostel have a rough idea of numbers.
If you need more details of the ride and would like to invite others then please go to this page

for any who are concerned about how long/hard the cycling will be, every day will have easier and harder routes and there will be short cuts, pubs and lots of cafes to stop at.
lucas has emailed through asking if any people are up for doing a little route mapping ride before the event – possibly over two days – if you are keen can you drop me an email even if you can’t make the full ride.
