Re: Merchant ship passage

Hi Lucas, Where in the world were you thinking of going? I know that a few years ago you get could get a DFDS cargo ship from Immingham as a paying passenger to Denmark. I'm not sure if they still offer this service but DFDS are worth contacting as they have a Global network. IF you were doing a rid...

Re: Any Excel experts out there?

Hiya Graham,

The problem has just been solved :D

I wanted to know how to 'insert a row' on sheet 1 and then have that row automatically insert on 5 other sheets.
Then type in information on sheet 1 and have it update the other sheets.

It was very very very easy to do. :wink:

Re: C2C - East Coast to Anglesey

Paul, unfortunately JH22 is correct, however you can get a train to Grimsby via Lincoln and then cycle to Cleethorpes following the NCN 12 or make your own route up. It will add an extra 3.5 miles to your ride, but at least you will appreciate where you live after you've done it! :wink:

Re: C2C - East Coast to Anglesey

Evening Paul Quite a long day, train ride and then 70ish miles. If you want to take a look at this site.... http://www.bikehike.co.uk It is a great way to plot and alter routes, it includes NCN Routes, but I suppose using them will only add unnecessary miles to your total, especially if you are happ...

Re: C2C - East Coast to Anglesey

Hiya Paul, I have a few questions to ask before I can offer any advice. 1, What type of roads do you want to cycle on? Busy, quiet? 2, How well do you know the Doncaster to Sheffield roads? 3, Flat or hills? 4, Will you be travelling to Cleethorpes the day before you set off? If yes, where do you pl...

Re: C2C - East Coast to Anglesey

Hiya Paul,

Do you know the Cleethorpes/North Lincolnshire area?
What is your route from there?
I may be able to help with advice for this area if you need any.

No jackets, no shorts but plenty of socks if you are size 5!

Not impressed at all :(

NUKe, I'm not trying to loose weight, I'm one of those lucky people that can eat what I want without gaining weight. :lol: The problem I have is the degree of hunger I feel when I have finished a ride, it is quiet voracious. :evil: I too take wine gums with me and pop one every few miles, I also sto...

I would guess that the NCN 1 goes inland because of Lincoln and Woodhall Spa, both have a degree of history attached to them, Lincoln being the main historical city of this area, it has numerous historical sites and a Cathedral to visit. The roads along the NCN 1 from Boston to Barton upon Humber te...
