Slimbridge to Gloucester - Severn Way

Does anyone know if the towpath from Slimbridge to Gloucester (NCR 41) is rideable on road bikes with panniers?

Thanks.

Re: LE to Bristol - Stick to Coast?

Thanks to everyone for all the hints and tips re the A39 in Cornwall.
I think we will use it for the stretch from St Columb Major to Wadebridge (as Mick has suggested).

Re: LE to Bristol - Stick to Coast?

Hi Mick F,
Do you know what the stretch of the A39 is like between St Columb Major and Wadebridge?
It will be a Sunday afternoon, mid May
Thanks,

Re: American wants to do LEJOG - equipment and accommodation

Just read LindaB's write up of their LEJOG and thoroughly enjoyed it.
Hope mine and hubby's forthcoming trip is just as good (but without any 'mechanicals' or tumbles!).

Re: Inverness Station

Thanks again to everyone.
I had seen the station plan but needed some reassurance from 'someone in the know'.
I can relax a bit now as our first and last nights b&b's are also booked -we've just got to plan the route.
Hubby doesn't worry about things as much as me!

Re: Inverness Station

Thanks for your help. I know it's cutting it finer than I would like but the tickets have been bought as one journey from Thurso to Edinburgh. I assume that Scotrail 'allow' for time to change trains. I think I'll ask for assistance at the station and keep a close eye on the time. Hopefully we will ...

Re: Hit off bike

Are you in the CTC?
If so, I'd contact them first.
When my husband was knocked off his bike the CTC appointed a solicitor and it was sorted out by them (but it took two years).

Inverness Station

Can anyone tell me how far it is from platform 6 (where our Thurso to Inverness train comes in) to platform 4 (where our Inverness to Edinburgh train departs)? Will we need to get station assistance to help transfer our bikes and luggage between the two platforms as we only have about 10 mins to cha...

Re: Where have all the end to enders gone?

Hubby and I are in the process of planning our unsupported LEJOG for later this year. I've been following this forum with interest for over 12 months and noting MickF's routes in the South West. We've also got a copy of the CTC B&B route but hope to do our own thing for most of the time. < by PM...
