I do believe Messie can top that with 12 hours

Although maybe cheatin a bit by arriving by campervan & it wasn't the furthest distance wise, just the circuitious route

That's what happens when you travel into central London, it's like a friggin time warp! Why anybody would choose to do that when they don't have to is beyond me!

Yes, and the Bradford ring road also bends time in a similar fashion.

They call it a ring road, I'd not describe it as a ring road by any stretch of the imagination

561 miles to get to site over 11 hour on thursday, bumped up to 624 miles after going around some of the route thursday night, by the time I pulled up outside my house at half four thisafternoon, the mileage was 1034.1.

Cheers Mark.

I know who came the furthest last year.

I had a 5000 mile, 20 hour flight (with connections) to land in Manchester then hopped on a bike and rode past Chippenham and that was just the first leg of the journey.
Not sure how may hours I had been awake at that point but would still take that over London traffic!

Er...Impressive numbers but 561 miles to get there, 624 on day one, with a total of 1034???
You either really took the long way there or took a heck of a shortcut on your way home!!!!
