The start time suggested sounds fine to me, Graham. It's not long now :roll:

I'll third the motion, 10am start sounds good.

On another note, we're coming up Friday evening - is anyone else doing the same & fancy an unofficial drink/dinner at one of the Local pubs?

I'm coming up on Friday - late afternoon or early evening. I'm camping at Deepdale. A pint or two sounds like a good idea.

I was planning to get to the Deepdale site early on Saturday to meet up for breakfast with the Friday night campers. I believe that there is an onsite cafe on the site that opens at 07.30.

If it's 10.00 at Burnham Market, then shall I propose 08.00 / 08.30 for breakfast at Deepdale, then 'saddle up' and a short ride.

I'll also leave the car parked here all day whilst we are out having ffff....fun. :D

Also sounds like a plan! They do quite a nice breakfast in there as well, all organic produce as well from memory!
Besides which, if Hubbers reputation is up to scratch, sounds like we may need a fry up!

greybeard and i met up for a ride this afternoon, 24 miles - half on road and half off road. the geometry of my black raleigh makes perfect sense on bridlepaths, ie. the sort of surface that roads would have had before they were tarmacked over. thanks steve for a lovely route, we saw only two cars the entire time 8)

graham, you should consider banning steve from the TCT though, he's always cursed with a killer head wind. :lol: we even had to pedal down a hill today :shock:

Me too! I aim to arrive late afternoon/early evening. I have no local knowledge - Is there a recommended pub to aim for?
