Makes sense, I'll get this into BaseCamp over the weekend and add in the POI's for fuel stops then the jobs a goodun

So.......anyone else fancy making a proper trip of it...meet at Peterborough if you're no coming from Norfolk?

I'll be heading to Manchester on the way back, to stop over with Family, then I'll hit the peaks on the way back

Post the route up Mark, but I think I'll be doing the boring A1 straight up, just to get there a bit quicker for a bit more of a rest before the ride out.

Here's my itinerary from Thursday

Thursday -Liverpool - Home (4 wheels)
Fri - Home - AR14 site (SV)
Sat - AR rideout (Sv)
Sun - AR14 - home (Sv)

Its a lit of miles in a few days, hence my wanting to go the direct (but boring) way

If I can get some acupuncture on the Thursday I might try the interesting route

So people are aware.
At Hexham, only the Shell is now open as the Esso isn't being rebuilt after a tank leak

Right update from me. Because I've been a complete divvy with the dates of my training, I will be riding to AR14 on Friday from Liverpool. It saves me driving home late on the Thursday night & then riding from Ipswich to the site on the Friday.

I'll make sure Paul know this

No but make sure we hook up en-route, if it's the main roads or back roads I don't mind
