    Excellent...

    Hi Terry,

    I have heard from Karl, he can't make it.

    The room is yours.

    I will confirm the reservation to the hotel in the morning.

    just to be clear, is Terry a.k.a. Brummie (who lists his location as Birmingham) actually a Brummie?

    I suppose that's acceptable, as long as we're drawing the line east of Wales and south of The North.

    look forward to meeting you, Terry.
    I'm tired of giving a reason when the future is what we believe in.

    No, it remains quite voluntary. A matter of personal choice, lifestyle, fashion consciousness and self-confidence

    I don't know what's happened - my trips on the bike are usually accompanied by storm clouds, driving rain and frostbite.

    I'm not even taking waterproofs this weekend!

    11 o'clock in passenger terminal building?

    Update on rooms....

    We have a new joiner, Giles and Rosie, so I have switched them into what was your double.

    Don't worry, Giles first found you a single in the same hotel.... Or so he says I guess we'll just have to trust him.

    There are now seven of us, on six bikes.

    Wapping (Richard)
    Robin
    Brummie (Terry)
    JohnTaylor54 (John)
    Giles (and Rosie)
    Sdk72 (Steve)

    With six bikes we should all be able to keep reasonably well together, let's just look out for the fellow behind and in front when making a turn. If we really do find we are getting too spread out, we can use the marker drop off system. The idea (as always) is not to lose anyone, no matter what.

    Giles is on a train half an hour in front of ours. We will meet him in the fuel station on leaving the train.

    I have looked at our route down to St Q again, with the idea of maybe missing out the motorway to J5 at St Pol ( where I once came very very close to meeting my maker). On my own or with a smaller group, we could do it, for sure. With six of us, we only need one delay on the train and time will slip away.

    There is no great advantage coming off before J5 as that only really brings us closer to St Omer. The alternative is to head down towards Boulogne and then head south east but we are sort of coming back that way on Sunday. Overall, I think J5 is the happiest option (not least as we lose the hour just crossing over) and we have a decent length ride ahead of us on Sunday.

    The weather still looks set fine across the whole weekend, including the run rom the train back to home in London in the evening... If it rains I am going to get wet and blame the man with the seaweed and fir cones

    See you in the waiting area 'thing' at the Chunnel.

    Richard
