I'll be hanging round too.
I've given Kavi a route that will warm the EAR train up on the Friday

Great timing guys Great Timing. But let me think if I can make it. Its the choice of being in Northumberland on my bike or Andalucía on my bike, and seeing as Andalucía is already booked I won't be coming yet again.

Congratulations on the winning (only) bid guys, beautiful part of the country, should be a great weekend.

Only thing I would suggest considering is the route distance.

Given the amount of faffing that goes on at every stop of an AR, 180 miles sounds a bit optimistic, and would probably represent 4-5 hours in the saddle realistically. Might be a bit much for some? (Personally, I wouldn't give a **** as I will be on my super-comfy explorer )

Having been on a GM, and the North v South run years ago, I know that the roads are more than up to covering decent distances at "enthusiastic" speeds. It just gets a bit harder to do that safely when there are larger numbers.
