Am testing my new sat nav route planning software by punching in a route through Essex that will be very familiar to some :rolleyes: (figuring that if the software makes it go tits up - at least I’ll still know the way home :D)
Starting at McDonalds Whalebone Lane - just off the A12 - less than 10 minutes from the A406 - link here : http://goo.gl/maps/QRE6
Time not set in stone yet … but am thinking 10am if you’re having brekkie … 10:30 if not.This will largely be a law abiding bimble125s welcome knobbers not.The ride will feature at least one stop for a cream-tea or ice cream. Two if the going is good and the sat-nav is working as it should!
No in all seriousness - I’m not 100% … the “short” version of the day will be 90 miles from A12 to A12
If the weather is as good as its looking like it will be … and people want to play out for longer … then it might be more like 150 (or maybe more - I’m still figuring out how the software/TomTom works :hehe: )
If you want to leave earlier though - and have maps on your phone - or even an old fashioned paper map(!) - I’ll be able to point you back in the right direction with relative ease - we’ll never be particularly far away from either the M11 or the A12 if you need to head back into town quickly/direct route.
Can’t make it tomorrow unfortunately which is a shame it’s been a while since I’ve been on a rideout. I will be new to big bikes soon hopefully though so might be up for something like this in about two weeks
I’d love to have come along and shown some support and well done for organising it. However am on another little ride (non LB one) tomorrow. But have a great time and glad the sun is out and shining for once Go where the road takes you and enjoy:D
15 miles around the North Circular is a bitch of a journey?
Sounds to me like biking isn’t for you mate … have you considered stamp collecting? I reckon there must be forums for that too? Maybe they have regular meets that you can post up about and not attend too?
erm actually i do attend the meets unless its raining or im too tired after work or i have a double shift on then i dont go ace cafe and considering my work journey is about 5 miles each way and i dont do long distance riding so yeah 15 miles is a bitch as im not used to long distance riding, we aint born being used to long distance riding and if i cant make a meet i post about due to last minute work issues i think work is more important than anything else.
plus i was at work so i dont really give a monkeys about not bein able to attend this ride out and to be honest ride outs dont interest me in all honesty rather just stick to going ace cafe when i can and relaxing there with mates and it aint many miles from home.
