Re: The WIMPS JOGLE 2020

With long travel times up to JOG can I suggest:
Saturday 15th August travel to JOG
Ride Sunday 16th for 14 days arriving at LE on Saturday 29th August.

This give people the Sunday to travel home and bank holiday Monday to have a rest before gong back to work on the Tuesday - for those who still work!

Mine will probably be on top of the car - from memory of Stafford you got yours into the boot of quite a small car?

Re: The WIMPS Morecambe Bay Xmas Ride..

First daft question. If we start in Barrow and ride to Glasson Dock, is there an obvious way to get back to Barrow to collect the cars??? Well someone had to ask.... :oops: When are you travelling up Pete? If you are going up on Friday afternoon the you could meet us at Tamworth and leave your car ...

Re: The WIMPS Morecambe Bay Xmas Ride..

Are you able to sort a static van for Saturday night - I've been looking at hotels in Grange but a static van might be a better option if one is available. Be great to catch up with everyone again, Lynda is looking forward to seeing Jules. Are you travelling up on Friday? Connor cycling - now there'...

Re: Lejog for wimps please- or am I on my own? ( merged )

I must admit I was really looking forward to a JOGLE. I wouldn't want to ride borders to LE. I like the challenge of the whole route, plus I was hoping to do the whole route on my Uncle John's bike. We talked about the trip and he wanted me to have his bike before he passed away. It would mean a lo...

Sorry to hear that C2C will be your last multi-day ride Ken, but you are right family and health have to come first.

I quite like the sound of that - certainly a lot more feasible from my point of view with work.

Re: Hat

I used a Tilley hat for the Wimps Lejog last year as I wanted a wide brimmed hat to provide additional sun protection. It had the added advantage of being able to soak it in cold water which helped with the weather we had.

Happy Birthday David.

If i remember correctly this was also the day when our backup crew had much hilarity with the Cock of the North / Penis tree plantation off the M74 :lol:
