Re: WIMPS Coast To Coast 2019

My confirmation email has disappeared. Nick / David can you remind me what site we're on, is it Seacote. Which reminds me I must book a space for Phil's tent....

In my area the Monmouth to Chepstow past Tintern Abbey then over the Severn Bridge is really good. Clevedon sea front (nice cafe and Victorian pier), Weston Sea Front (nice cafe and crap pier)....

Re: WIMPS Coast To Coast 2019

I wouldn't want to guarantee Phil (the driver) won't want an ale or two in the pub. I think it would only be right to ask him and possibly find a volunteer to drive back after all, he is doing us a huge favour....

I’d be happy to contribute towards fuel costs if it means we don’t have to carry kit. We could also go back to camping. Nick, you could lend Ken your tent to save him carrying the monster tent..... :)

Even carrying a tent, sleeping bag, mat, toiletries, clothes, etc alters the ride a lot. I’ve done little rides loaded up, I’m not sure I’d want to do it for 3 weeks, but that’s because I like to ride with as little extra weight as possible..but I think your point on getting a driver for 3 weeks is ...

Re: WIMPS Coast To Coast 2019

I'm coming up on the Monday bringing Phil (the driver) and staying at the St Bees campsite, I think Nick will be there as well.
Both me and Phil will need to get back to collect my car (from the start) after the ride.....

Re: WIMPS Coast To Coast 2019

And today’s daft question: I’m guessing there’s transport for everyone to get back to the start (where ever we leave the cars) from the finish....
I’m going to pay Phil (our driver’s) camping fee for the Monday night.

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

Also down my way via Clevedon sea front so we can see the fab Victorian Pier (there’s also a nice cafe) and Weston sea front as it’s much nicer than the housing estate we rode around....
