    We will need more than cheese and biscuits if we're playing the long game, over 300 miles of England's finest roads on the way to Dent with 2 ritz crackers and slice of cheddar, not enough, suggest we pick up a sandwich at a petrol staion on the way up.

    For the benefit of southerners, tea time is in the evening, maybe what you lot refer to as dinner time.

    Update on the Sunday ride for anyone interested. Set off time 9.45am sharp from the campsite. Full tank and some spending money.

    6 hours including stops. Includes Buttertubs, Arkengarthdale, Teesdale, Weardale and a few other places.

    All road with a bit of gravel in places, one small ford. Lots of sheep, rabbits, pheasants, the odd squirrel and an occasional hare.

    Everyone knows dinner time is at 8, smoking jackets at 10 when the women can retire and pretty themselves for bedroom Olympics at 11.

    Visiting Brough, Middleton-in -Teesdale, Leyburn, Coverdale, Kettlewell, Settle, Ribblehead and Hawes.

    Will use the drop-off system if the numbers require it, otherwise line of sight (to be sorted out on the day).

    I'm on a black 800GS. I suggest meeting at the campsite about 9.45 (to be confirmed) to avoid clashing with Paul's group.

    If anyone needs to know anything else - please ask
    Yes JB - Saturday ride is on

    Route recce'd also, about 6 hours - slight change to route as the road through Coverdale to Kettlewell is closed. Second stop is in Settle so choice of cafes and a chance to walk round the town.

    There is some petrol about 20 miles into the route at Kirkby Stephen, if anyone needs to fill up there.

    Leaving at 9.45 from the campsite entrance
    Life is short.
    And random.
    That's all you need to know...
