    Plus ill have to ride to Norwich, which adds an extra element of fun!

  • Of course!

  • I always thought I rode with you last year, Wrongcog.. Ha!

  • Spooky!

    Wasn't me... unless I sleepride.

  • Been gearing myself up for this since not doing the last one. In.

  • Yes, yes, yes.

    A lovely night ride then the family drive up to meet me for a [tired] day at the seaside.

    Why would you not do it?

  • Going to be my first time too.....I'm actually off duty for a change!

    I'll also try to rope a mate in.....he only rides mountain bikes, so I'll lend him something. Should be good for some comedic value!

  • I think that I've promised my father-in-law that we'll ride this. I might try to rope in my brother-in-law and his other half too, as well as some of their friends.

    Loved it last year.

    I've lost track of which years I've done this, and which years I've missed. This year I've agreed to ride with an old friend who had family out that way, so I may have somewhere to kip later on the Sunday, and if the weather's good might ride back at least part of the way.

  • Have never done a ride of this length it looks amazing.

  • not sure if i am around this year.. but i wrote this the day after DD20, as the tune was in my head alot, and summed up my experience

    sung to the tune of Bohemian Rhapsody..

    is this the real life?
    Is this just forum fun
    caught in dilemma
    'tween dalston and dunwich runs
    open your eyes, look up to the sky and see...

    i'm just a poor boy, i don't want aerospokes
    because i'm easy come, easy go
    little high, little low
    any way the wind blows
    doesn't really matter, to me.

    mama, just sold my bike
    put an ebay craiglist on,
    pressed the button now it's gone

    Goodbye everybody, it's time to go
    Didn't mean to make you mad,
    if i'm not back again this time tomorrow
    put my dinner in the fridge, or feed it to the dog..

    its too late, the time has come,
    sending shivers down my spine, didn't get to evans in time
    mama ooo-ooo-er make us a shooter's bap..
    wished i hadn't talked it up at drinks this week...

    *guitar solo *

    i see a little silhuetto of a bike
    blinking light, blinking light, did you see how fast Dan goes
    thank god for the pitstops, glad i didn't bring a lock
    Pinarello, Pinarello, darn forgot the flipping figrolls

    I'm just a poor boy, nobody reps me.
    He's just a poor boy, can't get sympathy (HTFU)
    spare him his life with that monstrosity

    Easy come, easy go, will you let him go??
    E'er no.. he's too slow...

    So you think you can get me pissed and mess up my eyes..
    So you think you can drop me, and leave me to die...
    Oh baby, can’t do this to me, baby,
    Just gotta get out, just gotta get of this citeh..

    Nothing really matters, we are at the sea now,
    Any way the wind blows, bless the organisers, for me

    a repost, but an anthem nonetheless..

  • Cut my life into pieces

  • ^^ Al, I said it last year and I'll say it again, that's absolute genius.

  • Am quite tempted by this but it's more the being awake all night that troubles me than the distance...I really, really like to sleep!

  • Plenty of people nap on the side of the road. This may or may not be your bag, but you'd not be alone ... in a non-creepy way !

  • And, for anyone worrying about pace, or not knowing people to ride with –
    Last year I lost the forum crowd before Epping Forest, but joined up with some other people who were riding at my pace, had a really nice ride, and am now good friends with them, so you will find people to ride with :)

  • has anyone got a garmin type route thing online? I want to find the spots I stopped at last year..

  • Here's a map I've used, provided by Jo Wood (not sure if he's on here)
