Route Britannia

Postby smith4188 » 5 Apr 2016, 7:44pm

I'm excited to be setting off on my next ride, a 5-month, route-less tour of the whole of mainland Britain, through every one of the 97 counties, starting this Monday (11th). The route will be determined by the suggestions I receive from people I meet on the road, as well as suggestions from Facebook, Twitter, email and on here. I've had a load of suggestions already but more would be great and the crazier, the better.

If you're interested in following the ride, have a look at www.RouteBritannia.com. From there, there's a link to Facebook. There's also a page showing where I will be and when (counties, that is) and current suggestions. And it would be great if anyone wants to meet up for a pint or to cycle along for a bit.

I hope to discover what makes Britain great, although I doubt it'll be the weather.

After boatymcboatface and the Tom Daley cover you're a brave man.

The off-beat and irreverent sense of humour?

That's the kind of trip I really wanted to do, but couldn't afford to take that much time off work. :-(

Have fun!
