  • I remember buying one of these to get myself "organised", used it for about 24hrs and gave up..

  • I had one.

    It was jokes. Totally jokes.

    Pen and pad was far easier.

  • My battalion bar was full of pictures of the para-soldiers that jumped in to Arnhem. It always made me proud.

  • Just to let you know that the planning for this ride is on schedule.

  • Strong and stable leadership @Will - we could do with your skills elsewhere.

  • Almost 2 years ago 10 of you voted to go to France on the 24th March. So we are going.

    Contrary to prevailing behaviour, I have done some preparation. Last September I tested out a route (on the same day as Anton's legendary birthday), and I can confirm that it was beautiful, and indeed full of sunlit uplands.

    For the trip itself in a couple of weeks, I have chartered a ferry with a small company called Seabourne. Given the proximity to Brexit, we are lucky that they have availability. As a bonus the skipper has told me that they will probably be able to serve us food for our crossing (most likely pizzas). We are hoping to alight at Calais, but there is a slight possibility that we will have to go to Ostend instead. But that should be fine as we can cycle just along the coast to join the route.

    Of course the other part to the journey will be getting to Ramsgate. The ferry leaves at 7am, and trains will be a little difficult at the time. As we all like bikes the best idea would therefore seem to be to ride down. If we leave London by 1:30am we should get to Ramsgate in time for the ferry.

    So, everything is in hand. We are going to France, and we are going to make a success of it.

  • Will is back!!!

  • Literally the best post EVER

  • omgz!

  • Thanks for organising Will. Where in London is the 1.30am meet-up? ;-)

  • There is now a chance that this event will be delayed. More info to follow.

  • Happy Brexit day everyone
