Thought I'd let you all know that a recce to determine the route for the ToL has been arranged for the 6th August.

I should have posted this up earlier, but didn't get around to it Crying or Very sad It looks like this might clash with the [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] run currently being proposed. My apologies for this. Embarassed The details, so far, for the recce are:

9:00am Sleaford A15/A17 Holdingham roundabout, Little Chef/filling station on the N exit (A15 Lincoln)

The route will then take us south and west with a stop at Foxton Lock nr Market Harborough Foxton Lock. How we get there and back is the reason for the day.

In addition MevsyD (Martin) is on a track day at Cadwell on the 6th so I will try and call in there before the end of the day.

BigNige will be joining me at Sleaford. Anyone else is welcome to tag along. If you want to join us later in the day please post up and we can try and fix some mutually acceptable times and locations. Fingers crossed for good weather. great

Cheers,
Chris

That's a heck of alot of mileage Tel.


Plus personally (IMHO) it will detract a bit from the enjoyment of TOL.

Tel - I don't know what route you had planned for the South meets Northish run, but if folk want to combine these that's fine with me. However I must finalise the ToL route. If it's just a lunch meet that fine; if it can be more even better Very Happy Who should I contact to find out more about the SmN (that sound's dodgy!) route?

Ellie - ToL will stand or fall on it's own two wheels! No plans to combine it with another event. This is just the recce to sort out the route. If we have two groups out on the same day it would be a shame not to try and meet up?

Chris

@ ellie ~ Thanks for the reply and input. I kinda had in mind using the ToL recce as a demi ride out just following Chris blindly around the proposed ToL roads, but without hindering the process of finalising the route.

Many of the visitors have already said they are unable to get W/E passes from SWMBO's or obtain visas at such short notice for ToL anyway, so it probably wouldn't detract anything for them. Rather give 'em an insight to what those of us lucky enough to get the weekend away for ToL will be doing.

The amount of miles our visitors will be covering whether on the recce or over our way on our own route (I have in mind) would be roughly comparable.
You didn't think I was gonna let 'em ride all the way up here just for a cuppa at Matlock Bath and call it a day did you ? huh , huh did you ? Shocked Laughing

@ Chris ~ As said above, don't wanna get in yer way, and having a group trapesing along behind you may slow things down.
I saw potential for a combination of interests and thought I'd put it out there for comments.

Generaly ~ I'm really easy (fnar - fnar naughty ) about the whole thing. It's our visitors day out ~ and it'll be a long 'un fellas ~ your talking 130 miles from London (Straight up the M1 - yawn) just to get to the start point here, plus whatever you have south of the smoke. So just getting here and back I guestimate is gonna be in the ball-park of 400 miles. All in all yer looking at a 500 mile plus possibly 12 hour day Shocked !
You're going to be testing yer Cats fuel range and touring comfort (well up to it) as well as your own endurance (are you ?) great

I value all your opinions and input ~ please keep it coming ~ I'm sure we'll sort something out to suit and please everyone.

I was just thinking of the 600+ miles the southeners would have to cover. What do i know lol!


I was thinking the mileage from Chezzy + TOL route was too far, I'm just too old & overweight lol

Infact perhaps we should perhaps have this conversation on the TOL thred and see who else is going that might want to meet up on the way etc.

Hi Heero,

If you want to join us for the start that's fine.
We're likely to be heading south from there so you can head back to Peterborough whenever you wish. Or, if you want to join us later in the day, let me know and we can give you a call to arrange to meet somewhere else.

Anyone else?

Cheers,
Chris
