Anyone interested in a Farewell to Summer Run?? (FTSR)

    Sam pan something or other

    Kartman (Phil) has been good enough to run these excellent ride outs in the past but this time he is unable to make it.

    So.... Promising that I'll do my best to maintain Phil's standards, I've teamed up with Curlynot (Rob) and together, we are happy to run a FTSR this year if there is any interest.

    We are thinking of starting off from the usual venue, Peterborough Services, at 0930 on Sunday 22nd October and following a similar route to last year, about 180 miles around some of the best roads in England and are aiming to return to the services at about 4pm, including a coffee and a lunch stop.

    Please post up if you are interested.

    Definitely interested, but not certain I can make it at the moment, Brian. Pencil me in, please, and I'll confirm asap.

    It's not my year o_O . . . . first, Shropshire Shenanigans . . . . I'm in Scotland ( four wheels) . . . . . now FTSR . . . . I'm in Scotland (four wheels)
    I love Scotland, but this year it has got in the way of some good riding. I shall look forward to 2018.

    Forget pencilling me in - you can do it in ink. See you on Sunday 22nd, barring the unforeseeable. I might even book a B&B and travel over on Saturday.

    Great news!

    Count me in unless a) I lose some hard earned Brownie Points between now and then (I should note that it is our second wedding anniversary on the 23rd October so I may be pushing my luck....) or b) the weather is atrocious!

    As we are only a week away any chance of posting the route so I can upload to my Garmin.
    Brian, Ernie,
    Where are you staying I may join you as that's sounds like a brilliant idea, I may even buy you a beer!
    Anyone else fancy joining us?
