Depending on the dates you can count me in. I had originally volunteered to act as coordinator but not sure I can do that any more - other commitments etc. But I'm happy to do baton support and/or POT assistant.

Hi, I am new to this site and only joined today - am I being dim (a definite possibility) or does it mention somewhere when the Pink Way Round is going to take place? I live in Plymouth and would be interested in either of the legs that go past me, thanks for the info, Anna

I just looked at Clives route down into Cornwall, I was thinking about the way back up again which obviously would be the North coast, my query are we going to cover the same roads twice? It is just the route back out of Land's End avoiding the down route is pretty narrow and twisty even for those of us that know it all to well. Once past St Ives things get easier.

Hiya Shaun I havnt been to Lands End for a while but we had intended taking the road up through St Just, Pendeen etc. I dont think it will be a problem we are hoping to get down soon and do the entire route to get a better idea of timing and also to familiarise ourselves with the route. I will mail you when we do if you want to come along.

Rob I think it really is weather depend if a good day not too bad but well slow, on a windy miserable day it is not a wise move with another 200 miles in front of you. I come for a ride when you do look.

Stig Of The Dump
23-02-06, 15:42
Good point on the weather I spent every summer as child near Sennan, most of the trees have that 45 degree windswept look about them for a good reason. I guess we could take the short cut on the day if needs be. Where abouts in Cornwall are you Im 2 hours from Lands end so it wouldnt be a bad day out even if we did just the North Coast.

I am in a place called Redruth 30 miles from the end :) If I could drag my ass out of my pit could well escort the ride around the Cornish Coast i.e from Saltash round to Bude and maybe bit beyond.

Stig Of The Dump
07-03-06, 20:24
Cheers Guys local knowledge would be great for the Cornish coast if you would want to do a bit of leading. I know North Devon pretty well so I OK from there.
Im looking at coming down sometime the last week of the month just to make a few notes will let you know when.

Hi Guys and girls, Might have a slight problem Anna is having a job interview abroad in two weeks time if she gets the job (best of luck Anna X) she wont be here for the challenge )-; Just thought it best to mention it now rather than later and find out if any other ladies were thinking of coming on this leg?

Stig I have just reviewed the new route and would suggest that it would be quicker to go via Newquay and not by pass it. Getting on to the A39 earlier rather than later the route from Bodmin to St Treath is not the quickest and hard going.

Hi Guys
Have just spoken to Anna, she has been offered a contract in the Caribean and has accepted :clap well done Anna :clap
So now were looking for a new lead rider I have someone else in mind but shes doing a charity bike ride the weekend before so is possibly doubtful if she will manage both.
So come on girls summers here and its a nice ride to practise, and I will buy the cream teas.

Rob, if there are no offers from your area I have volunteered to drop the severn bridge to aberystwyth leg because both myself and Maria are doing it.(got to warn you though I ride a Honda Transalp :eek: ) My hubbie will want to ride the leg too so offers his services as an outrider. Obviously if there is a GS girl in your area then fine but if not the offer is there. I have asked duchess to let me know ASAP if you need me so I can book the leave.

Thanks Shaun for getting in touch I am much happier now I have a rough idea of where I will be riding. Please can we touch base a couple of times between now and the ride so I know that all is well and there are no change to plans. Feel a little out of the loop being so far away and want to make sure that all goes well.



Thanks guys

I've spoken with the Hotel...

a) they are ok with us using their car park for the handover. They said that although the car park is a little way from the hotel, due to the handover time please could we try and keep the noise down :)

b) I'm awaiting a quote for supply of Tea/Coffee/Sandwiches. I won't need to confirm actual numbers until 1st Sep.

c) We will be able to use the Bar area for Tea/Coffee/Sandwiches - the front door will be locked but we can ring for the night porter.

I'm getting a quote for a dozen people for b) - hopefully that will cover region 3 and region 4 participants and a few groupies ;)

I understood that the lands end start time is at 4am on the Wednesday morning. This link http://www.ukgser.com/forums/showpost.php?p=605706&postcount=3 gives details of the start and finish times. Please someone tell me if I am wrong.

Sharribee, we need to make a decision about your Regional Co-ordinator.

Stig of the Dump hasn't been on the site since early May. Its getting quite close to the challenge, which is worrying me slightly.

I've sent him 2 pm's but he's not responded to either so I can only assume now that he may not make the run, unless anybody here knows any different.

We're going to have to fill the vacancy to bring this region in-line with the others.

Would anybody from here be prepared to take on the role ?

Please let me know as soon as possible.

Thanks everso.

sharribee
09-08-06, 21:08
It is very quite in this region and I am getting a little anxious about having someone with me who has local knowledge.

Could those of you that have volunteered to ride support confirm that you are still able to do so and if you are riding the whole or part of the leg with me.

Also could someone please give me details of where I can stay within the area as I will be riding down early Tuesday moring and would like to get a little sleep before we start.

Thanks

Sharribee I am still riding at least the Cornish bit probably turning back around brigdewater way. I think some of the region 3 riders are also going to continue up the otherside.

You say you are coming down Tuesday morning so riding late late wednesday nite?

If you & other half don't mind roughing it you can stop here the day/evening, I will be leaving home at around midnight to go to Plymouth to meet the down coming riders, but I think can trust you to let yourselves out to ride down to lands end which is about 30 miles away.

Sorry not taking on the role of regional co-ordinator too busy at the moment.

Thats fantastic thanks Shaun, it will be reassuring to have local guys with me as I don't know the area at all. We don't mind roughing it at all we were going to camp somewhere thanks for your offer Iwill PM you a week or so before to arrange things.

I'm doing Princetown now but would still like to ride with you. I presume your just riding the A39 from Cornwall along the coast to Bridgwater. I'd like to meet up at Barnstaple and ride the ( I guess ) about 80 miles to somewhere near weston super mare.
Its about 50 miles from me, any idea what time you are due to pass Barnstaple?

Don't quite know yet but will be looking at the route over the next few weeks and chatting to the local guys. Will let you know asap. Obviously it will have to be fairly flexible to take into account any hiccups on the routes before but we can swap phone numbers so we can contact you on the day (night) :rolleyes:

Hi guys I have been trying to work out who is doing what in this region so I thought I would post it here to make sure I havn't missed anything

Me - Baton Lady :eek:
Pricey - riding the whole route with me (cause I told him he has too :D )
Shaun - riding the first part of the route ? to Bridgwater
Trippy meeting us at Barnstable

Devon has volunteered and will get back to me to say which part

If I have missed anyone please add it

THe only thing I am not sure about is how the PR will go in the lands end area, not being local I am not able to do anything with this do any of your local guys have any suggestions or able to help.

I have posted a route thread could someone just post a route in there so I can have an idea where we will be riding. http://www.ukgser.com/forums/showthread.php?t=81459
