Not a new idea - my parents were riding down to Bournemouth, Portsmouth etc regularly - back before I was born in the 50's! Not unknown for a round trip to Brighton with chips at the coast before heading for home.
Convention? what's that then?

Airnimal Chameleon touring, Orbit Pro hack, Orbit Photon audax, Focus Mares AX tour, Peugeot Carbon sportive, Owen Blower vintage race - all running Tulio's finest!

I remember Barry Hoban giving a talk. He used to ride for Calder Clarion before he turned pro and they used to ride overnight from Wakefield to Liverpool to catch the ferry for Isle of Man week, in the late 1950s.
