    There is some concern about bimble numbers. Trust me we will be fine and can lead any size of march across the moors

    Chances are we'll be no more than 2 groups of 10 tops by the time hangovers have taken effect and the weather is either too wet, too warm or just too much like weather.

    The drop off system allows for a decent size group to spread over a distance so don't stress about numbers. Most of the ride should be reasonably unpopulated anyway.

    Last year was about 10 or 12 per group. Loads of opportunity for those inclined to do rideout this year. All you need to do is turn up, fully fuelled for 120ish miles of gorgeous roads.
    Julie and I rode 20 miles of it Sunday in that fine rain that soaks you through. The rest wall to wall Sunshine. Look forward to meeting some new folk this weekend.
    If anyone arrives early enough on Friday happy to do a run around local from 12ish. Couple of hours int Peak. Need to leave at 4ish to nip home for me Julie.
    Post on here if you do.

    Miff, usually a worrying thought when it goes so well

    It has been written in mapsource, Phil added a couple of lanes in Basecamp. I have run it in January and in two halves from my end. Then one full run last Sunday from Bills. Glance regularly when there are lots of lanes together keeps you on track. Runs like shit through a goose.

    Joe look for a larger than your average tosser ,R1200gs adv and the most faded orange tent you have seen won't be far away

    All packed for me and the Mrs just need to lob it all on and

    That narrows it down a bit.

    Mini Bimble,
    Met up with Joe C on here had a gentle ride out for a few miles, lunch at Monyash. The Sunbeam owners club were out in force. Good to see some concourse bikes out and about. Hiding amongst them was a vincent and an Indian 20 0dd bikes

    Me and Joe parted company and I shot home after a call for some help at home from Julie. Back 7 for 8 ish.
