Last time I looked - its been a few weeks now - the train people said on their site that I had to have a travel ticket for me and then a couple of days before I would be due to depart I could check to see if there was space for my bike. Not really a practical situation at all.
My current plan - it does change from day to day - is to ride at the beginning of September to get out of the peak school holiday season. Originally I was going to do it at the the beginning of June but I've been faffing around like a sail boat without a rudder because I thought I might want to do a 1200K instead out of Lytham, but then I realised that may not be sensible - 200 miles a day for 4 days in a row
- so now I'm back to LeJog - I think.
Anyway, If I can crave your indulgence again, if you have taken the esteemed Mick's route and converted it into an excel cue sheet, would you mind PM'ing it to me please? I should already have his GPS route somewhere, but I think I've lost it.
As for riding, 125 miles a day is okay for me and i'm going to be riding with hope of finding a resting place each night with no prior warning of my arrivals. I will - maybe - carry a tent.
