Default Who's Travelling Furthest?

So who's travelling from the far ends of the galaxy, or just ends of scotland, to get to AR?


I'm coming from Bolton which won't win any medals.

Northwind or Blueflame I would have thought.

If I cheat and count all my 'vias' on the way, about 1000 miles for me

Northy and I have about 450 miles to travel to get to the campsite so we may well be contenders for that coveted prize !!

the "mile muncher title" was won by Dizzy as it wasn't only distance but overcoming obsticles as well, for example Foxyinleathers, passed her test last week to come on her own bike, Carnivore delayed a hip OP to come, many more examples I'm sure.

Cheers Mark.

Ahh rite......... I thought this thread was who's travelling furthest as opposed to who overcame various obstacles to get there. The guy from France looks the winner at the mo.

On the other basis........ you won last year did you not??

For us it's just miles... Broken hips and spines aside Blueflame is north of me so he'll be the furthest, unless Redbuoy comes. I think Zunkus almost came from Malta last year
