    GS er en god cykel for veje i Danmark ...

    Bring a good tent- there will be a lot of camping, except for when we stay at Raboomdea's mum's house...

    Welcome Aboard

    Sorry for the late reply Soren DK, you'd be more than welcome, the trip will be most likely 6 nights in Ireland itself with 2 nights camping followed by one night B&B/Hotel and the same again so 4 nights camping at the least

    I'm aware that it's too early for anyone at all to commit to going given the length of time till the trip but we now have a healthy interest at least

    With that I am thinking I will now close the open invite to be viewed by just those who have shown an interest and only allow further application by drop out only on a first come first served basis

    I know its early days to close the invitation but I am comfortable with the numbers we now have and still have a couple of friends (that you can't see yet listed) who might be able to come. Once the thread is 'For Your Eyes Only' we can start to discuss the actual route and accommodation further

    Cool Let's get started!

    Happy New Year to you all

    I'm thinking that as this thread has lay dormant for the last couple of months it would be a good time to breathe some enthusiasm into it again

    The route is set as are the dates, like I said in the original post of this thread the week to take off of work is between the 24th of April to the 2nd of May. I think it is fair to now ask for confirmed numbers so those of you who can definately come should let me know by no later than the 1st of February, that way if some of you have to drop out then I can re-open the invite to give others a chance.

    Saturday the 24th is the day that we will be making our way to a rendezvous point, the best idea is if we can all try to meet up near the port we will be crossing from which will either be Stranraer or Troon and spend the night at a campsite there.
    The following morning is when the trip starts, we will cross over to Belfast on the Sunday morning and start our journey to our first nights stopover on the Emerald Isle. We can meet up with the lads from Ireland who are coming on the trip either on-route or in Belfast itself before we set off.

    I know that some of the boys from down south have the option to cross over further south and make their way to either Belfast to meet us off of the ferry or to make their way to our first nights stopover where we can meet them there. We can work this all out over the next week or two.

    Finally, over the next few days I will be taking those of you who offered to help a little up on your kind offers I will let you all know where we will be stopping over and you can try to find suitable camping sites for us to bide at. We can use this forum to bat back and forward any suggestions.

    Roll on April

    Hellooo, Helloo, Hello!

    Still a bit quiet in here

    Looks like i'm going to have to pm you all

    Anyways when you all do finally awaken from hibernation I have a question

    Looking over the trip it looks a bit like this:

    Travel to rendezvous point on Saturday the 24th of April which will be a campsite in or around Troon where we will depart the next morning.

    Travel across the fast ferry on Sunday morning leaving at 10:05 am and getting us into Larne for around midday.

    Start traveling.

    The route I have planned gets us finished the following Saturday at around Midday back at Larne. So my question is, do we return via Larne on the 17:30 fast boat on the Saturday night, or would everyone prefer to spin it out another night and leave on the Sunday morning on the 07:15 fast boat getting us back to Troon for the back of 9 on Sunday morning

    I personally am leaning towards leaving on the Saturday evening cause I don't fancy getting up at around 5am on Sunday morning with a hangover to catch the boat but what do you all think???
