Firstly thankyou so much to all the awesome folk we met at Falmouth. biggrin

Mieke and i shall be bi cycling from Dover to Lands End, and from Lands End to John o Groats, going through Wales on the way, and would love to meet and play with as many of you as we can along the way.

We'll be in Dover from Calais on the 8th of July and i'm expecting we'll be riding for over a month.

Would love to meet you, learn your skills, learn in general, have fun, where possible borrow your showers smile and hope to make life long friends.

Please let me know what you think.

Peace and love / keep it gangsta

Sounds like a cool plan!, If your going through Glasgow theres a juggling club on wednesday nights and spinning in the park on sunday afternoons, hopefully see you at one of those!

sounds like your adventuring is going well, see you on the flip side g

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourself, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous and talented? Who are you NOT to be?

ok, cool, thanks heaps you peeps for replying coz we'd really love to meet as many people as possible and make this the most awesomest trip around the uk that it ever could be.
I may have to spend a short while in london to sort out a belgian visa, but this is what the ride is looking like at the moment

Dover - Hastings - Worthing - Southampton - Dorchester - Exeter - Plymouth - Falmouth - (lands end) Newquay - Launcheston - Tiverton - Glastonbury - Bristol - Cardiff - Brecon - Builth Wells - Llanidloes - Dolgellan - Porthmadog - Conwy - Liverpool - Lancaster - Windermere - Carlisle - Hexham - Newcastle - Berwick - Edinburgh - Glasgow - Brodick - Claonaig - Lochgilphead - Dalmally - Oban - Tobermory - Broadford - Loch Cluanie - Inverness - Lairg - Betty Hill - John O'Groats

so these are the overnight places at present, if you live at any of these, know anyone who does, can get to any of these, are inbetween any of these, near any of these then let me know, because that would be truly awesome

we also have to work our way back down, but as yet we're not sure what's happening, because if i can get a working holiday visa for belgium, we'll head back down and go there. We're gonna be so fit by the time we get up there, it'll rock.

please, let people know about this

can't wait to hear from you

I'd be well up for a spin, I work just outside of Newquay!

You know its gonna be damn busy in July right? half of the UK's yobbo's come down to get as lairy as they can for as long as they can! frown

But, having said that, its a lovely place, just make sure that you book well in advance for sleeping arrangements!

My state of mind is not yours to define!

There is a very fine line between "hobby" and "mental illness."

Right, obviously Falmouth isn't a problem, and if Launcheston means Launceston, that may not be a problem either. I'll mail you.

Cool, more bike tourers, I was toying with the idea of riding out around southern ireland this summer but haven't got anything planned yet . . . good luck to you guys....

Hey I am in Cardiff, but quite busy this summer but if I am in town you are quite welcome to stay . . .

Not taking the short route then . . . I rode lands end - john o'groats in 2002, it were much fun . . . hope you enjoy it . . . Have you done stuff like this before, if I can offer any tips then let me know (have done a fair bit of touring in the past)

Thankyou so much for your replies, i know there are so many awesome places that aren't on this list, but we have so much land to cover. We will be riding back down from the land of the scots too, so maybe on the east coast, because it's flatter smile, and we'll be tired, but oh it's going to be so awesome.
As we want to do Scotland while it's a bit warmer, and we need to be thinking about our funds we unfortunately can not go absolutely everywhere, which is where we want to go, arg, what am i saying...
yeah sadly we can't go everywhere
This is the first bike tour we've done and we're super looking forward to it.
I'm afraid i'm about to get kicked off the net, but please keep in touch and i'll keep y'all posted.

Fluffly napalm fairy, hopefully we'll make it to exeter before the 13th of July so it would be awesome if we could catch you there
Strugz i don't think we'll be in southampton those two days, hopefully we'll have moved on much further by then, i played with your power-risers at falmouth, they were so fun, where are you going to be the rest of the month?
If anyone else out there lives along the way, let me know
peace out

I'm in swansea which id futher on along the welsh south coast than Cardiff so I'm guessing offering you a place to sleep is abit useless as I'm not on your route but if you let me know when you will be in Cardiff I'll try and come along. Rossco is in Cardiff too.

Nearly finished work and the plans are transforming as we go smile
Could be staying in Tintagel now rather than Newquay, but will still pass through so it would be cool to catch you if we can Bird. One of the alleged birth places of King Arthur, cool! The Wales stretch of the journey is lookin more and more like it could be destined for another time, still really want to do it, but there's so much to do and only limited money and time frown Curse you money... and time spank
just as an aside, has anyone checked out the new album from nine inch nails??? oh i love it, the song 'right where i belong' is definitely worth listening to, over and over and over biggrin
oh yeah, so with the cutting out of Wales for now, the going to Dunc in Shrewsbury has been added so that will be way way cool. I shall have to figure out the replacement stop over towns and let you all know
take care and have fun peace
