Looks like its a goer. Can't find any excuse not to go .Tank bag prepared with grazing box of nuts,grapes and chocolate raisins. Basic tools and puncture kit. Required paperwork. Road book. Camera, phone etc. Sat nav loaded. Waterproof map. Have I forgot anything?? Probably. I'll just buy anything I need in garages.
48hours, 2000 miles, 15 National Parks!
Leaving Bristol at 4.15am to South Wales. Up the West coat to Glasgow and Cairngorms. Then back down west coast to friends house nr Middlesborough for around Midnight. He is leaving me a key so I can arrive and leave when I want. Bed will be prepared and banana left for Breakfast.
Planning to leave 4 hours later to London, along south coast , Dartmoor, Exmoor and back to Bristol.
I'll attempt to buy a postcard at each National park but may have to get other proof of going there at night.
Forecast looks like rain up the west coast on Saturday but Im hoping it wont be to bad as I'll be behind the hills by late afternoon. Coming down the east and south will be fine and maybe some rain at the end.At least it will be warmer at night with cloud cover
If you want to see where I am have a look at
On Friday it still shows my route back from Oulton Park last week. That will disappear saturday and just show the ride
