Coast to coast sometime......

Post by techno » Sun Jan 19, 2020 2:29 am

I'm hoping to ride a modified version of the Tim Woodcock coast to coast route if anyone fancies joining me that'd be ace.
I'm reckoning on 2 long days with a bivvy somewhere scenic!

I'm thinking of doing it on one of the following weekends: may 1st or June the 20th. But open to suggestions on date.

I'd still be up for this but;

1) i need to get some miles in
2) It probably needs to be nearer march/april which doesn't help with 1.

I have just looked at train tickets though and found one mid April for 16.50

As mentioned above I'm waiting on a date for an operation so I'm postponing this until all is sorted. FFS!

I've edited the route using info I've read up on what people think of the original and accessing the BB hive mind.

Can't promise that we won't all die in a bikepacking related mishap though. But surely the risk is part of the fun :-bd
