If you sort out a rough route that you think would be best, just as a trial I will drive it tomorrow, come back and give my verdict on it. Taking into account fatigue, safety, checkpoints, will set the milecounter thing in my car see the actual distance etc etc.
I have tomorrow off work (I have been working saturdays in preseason) so I would like to fill my day time somehow.

Great help thank you. I think there is a route on page 5 ish that I would like to adapt to go in through a main road, just so people see it happening. Most would be town fans heading in so we could get some honks of support!

if you message me it with the adaptations I will be happy to give it a test run in the car, or anyone with other suggestions, the less hills the better I am thinking.

It's fooking hilly through Caistor way, having done it many, many times over the past 8 years! Can I suggest looking at http://www.multimap.com as they do an option for "Walking" and it's 36.73 miles from BP to SB... There's probably scope to "adjust" this route but I can't do it from work!
THe route I always use now, albeit to the North part of Lincoln is to Louth and through Wragby. Again, hellish hills that way, both up and downhill though. Couple of nice pubs on the way though....!

I think we should get Lincoln to get us some meals ready for when we get there, accompanied by beer. Lots of beer. Anybody who can recommend a route please do. We need to give the routes to our media sources and stuff.

I went the A157 way to lincoln this morning, there are a few bad hills but is mainly downhill from Hainton (9 miles from Louth). There is 1 very bad hill at Grimblethorpe (what a name) though.


Now based in reading, do I class as an exile yet?
