Default Re: Who's Travelling Furthest?

Me and maria will be travveling about 135 miles

Which is ok

but a bit tiring on a 33 bhp SV, loaded up with gear and and pillion

If you'd have waited two weeks for AR08, I would have a derestricted SV...

Mind you, its not much of a trek, its like me riding from maria;s to brighton then carrying on riding for a bit longer, easy peasy

if redbouy can make it...he'll be nothing short of "most eager orger"

well not so much of a trip for me this year, about 140 miles if I head straight down, but I'm taking most of the day and my route is 216 miles, although this year had better be a lot less painful this time and I should be capable of walking at the end of it

Cheers Mark.

The effort your making? I think the "only to those that come by bike" rule is firmly out the window!!! Get there any way you can, I say

I think to "over come" is a better critiria, no matter what it is ?

Cheers Mark.
