    Andy,

    I have just spoken to the second hotel.

    In a mixture of Franglais, I think I have now got the five rooms we need.

    So that is Saturday night, Sunday and Monday night's hotels confirmed.

    I am just waiting to hear from the Friday night's hotel but would guess that it should be OK, as I think many of the rooms are twins. I am sure (famous last words) that we can cobble something together.

    Let's say that it is: ALL SYSTEMS GO

    Richard

    Well, with a bit of jiggery-pokery, we are all in. What's more we all appear to have a bed, which is nice.

    Jiggery-pokery notwithstanding, I have done some work on some alternative routes down from our first night's hotel to our second night's hotel.

    I had erred a bit on the side of caution, not sure how many bods there would be and / or quite what hotel(s) we might end up in. Now I know, we can maybe ring a few changes.

    I will just re-check to see if they work OK and lob them up..... Before we go!

    Richard

    PS Now that there are six bikes we might run a bit of the good ol' marker 'drop-off' system, to keep us all reasonably together. Let's see how we feel on the day.

    If anyone is stuck and can't access Mapsource before we go, let me know. I can bring a small laptop to share the routes or use an SD card for a 550 or 660 Garmin device.

    Im a clueless 660 user.
    took me ages last night just to figure out how to get my maps updated so an sd card or laptop to share the route would be nice
