Kudos to van driver who reversed for you.......are you sure that it's a Garmin not a Gravelmin, though? :D And can you get knobblies in Bandit sizes these days?
Nope

Yes......thinking of Church Strettonish way (A49)..... there used to be a good cafe in the market there. Sound like a plan?

Cheers

Errr...just done a quick recalc. and I reckon the caff at Quatt is more realistic given your timescale. Agree? (Even if we are power gods.) :D

Yes had a quick look, about 4 hours riding time + 1 hour for food means leaving Stratford no later than 10:00.

Quatt is better this week. So where and when do you want to meet?

Rain notwithstanding, I enjoyed the ride - as JRH said, better on the way back so able to make a bit more progress. @Hoggs : not so wussy now eh? Rain holds no terrors for us......... :shock:

Well did London Gliding Club at Dunstable Downs today......a good mixture of A & B roads, about 110 miles round trip. Food is good and reasonable and cafe has great views of glider flying. You can even have a go if you want. Did my usual trick of going out with no cash.......you guessed it, "sorry sir, we don't take cards"......grrmph! Luckily JRH came to thd rescue with tempirsry losn of a tenner. Some good pubs on the way (and before you ask, no we didn't stop...). Another tick in the book for the Midlands Maniacs! (I'm still trying to work out what Lincs has got to do with it.......not having a go at our mates from that neck of the woods, but "Midlands"? :scratch: :scratch: :scratch: )

Thanks @Speedy23 for leading.
It was an interesting building at the gliding club, and a good lunch to boot, nice and healthy (no fry ups lol)
Still working out the interest to be levied. :lol:
