    Hi jez, is there any chance you could post the route in a format for TomTom users or provide a list of the turning points please?

    I cannot make out the turning points or route direction on ianboydsnr's screen grab.

    Thanks....

    In theory you shouldn't need it as there'll be a tailend charlie on both groups....but you never know. I'll see if I can find a tomtom user who can do the route in their software for us just in case and I'll also do some zoomed in screen grabs over the weekend that'll show the route in more detail.

    Thanks for the maps all! Looks like a great ride (you've pulled some lovely roads in there Jez!). Looking forward to it even more. Went up over Iron Keld on the way home from work tonight (it was easier in the old landy!). Just can't beat the Lakes for roads and views.

    Is the ride out on Saturday or Sunday? My missus has just found a bloody wedding invitation for the Saturday which has completely stuffed my weekend, but I'll still be up for a ride-out on the Sunday if you guys are still around. Sorry to stuff the planning.

    Now there's a man with a plan!

    Came home over hard knott pass on Thursday in homage to the fun that would have been. Great roads and jaw dropping scenery.
