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.

Re: WIMPS Coast To Coast 2019

I agree, we would love to be able to do it but the needs of the many outweigh those of the few.
Hopefully we can catch up with you on another ride soon

hi cycleruk,
If you are staying at the Premier inn then yes, you can leave the car there all day Saturday.

I haven't heard anything from them or cycleruk.

Proposed route - all quiet lanes once we are out of town.

Wetherspoons is the other side of town - about 1 mile form the Premier Inn - it's about a 10-15 minute walk into town from the Premier Inn.
We've not eaten at a Chinese in town, (seems to be better for Indian rather than Chinese).

If people don't fancy the Beefeater then it's going to be a drive to get to a pub that can seat a party.
