I think I'll have a spare coach ticket, maybe 2 if anyone wants.
Doing it for the first time this year- will I need a decent front light ?
Seconded YES. And keep your rear light on steady, no-one wants to be looking at a blinky bright red light for miles and miles!
I've got a Knog blinder but I guess I'll need some more lumens... what kind of thing are people using?
Guessing the Knog might not even last..
Your knog will be fine. Keep it on steady. Bring a backup one from decathlon.
That knog is a safety “be seen” light. It won’t light up the road in front on dark sections.
Just while I’m here does anyone have a 2013 dynamo jersey they’d part with? Bit of a reunion ride and always regretted not getting one at the time!
I contacted them and they said that it wasn't possible. Maybe I'll try my luck again. I don't normally get to Ipswich until after 3:30 anyway - I have a good friend in Westleton and we have brunch together.
Anyone ridden down to Harwich and got a train back to London from there? As far as I can work out there aren't any restrictions from there, but it's pretty confusing.
Harwich is quiet and I've had a tandem on the train between there and London without a reservation
Thank you - it looks like a pleasant cycle down with ferries and stuff so am tempted.
Aside from having twice sworn not to ever do DD again, but am now slightly tempted as long as I neither have to wait for a coach or ride back.
Weird - for reference I booked the 17:43 and called them on Monday and they said no problem
Have to mark essays tomorrow now instead of deposit car as planned, please can I have two coach tics please?
Dunwich looking lovely today. Here’s the approach along the side of the Franciscan Friary ruins.

You might call me soft but I've pre-booked a bacon roll. Haven't seen the link up thread so here it is:
Me too (although I went for the beans). Did the same last year. Even though there are plenty of food options along the way - but less after Sudbury - it was reassuring to know grub was guaranteed and you wouldn't have to queue.
I was contacting them by e-mail...
After I read your comment I phoned them and sure enough there were places, so I'm booked on the 16:43. Thanks for the tip, I'd have missed the ride if I hadn't read what you wrote.
Anyone know of a food option around abouts Framlingham that caters to vegans? We're doing the double and the above suggestion of Sudbury is a bit too early for a proper break for our schedule...
Gosbeck village Hall are advertising that they're doing veggie rolls (along with bacon rolls, soup etc) the dynamo Facebook page. Obviously that could just means cheese...
Edit: they just posted confirming there will be vegan options.
Thanks dude. I’ve got confirmation that Brandeston Village Hall at about 100 miles is doing hot vegan food. That’ll do us.
So... anyone checked the weather? (I’m rubbish at this sort of thing) is there a clever way of tracking weather against a route? 🤷♂️👍🏻
Weather bagel is your friend.
Or a less clever way is to check the BBC weather at the start, middle and end. currently: London 20°c at 9pm, Sudbury 12°c at 2am and Dunwich 13°c at 7am. 7-10mph breeze from the north (booo!) all the way. No rain.
Wind works for my first leg solo from Dunwich to Hackney in the morning. Hopefully wind dies down and the event gets me though the return to the beach
Great to hear they're catering for vegans at those stops! Brandeston sounds as if I should stop there.
Don't worry about formatting, just type in the text and we'll take care of making sense of it. We will auto-convert links, and if you put asterisks around words we will make them bold.
