Well if you are offering to help one way then that is welcomed. We would also need backroom staff such as safety car drivers, first aiders and water boys so any help is welcome.

I think this will take you guys over 6 hours each way. I've done this trip before and it is a real killer; there are some big hills in the first 2 hours and if you're not in any sort of shape you'll have a struggle.

I think you're better off hiring a transit as a support vehicle. You can keep bottled water in it for the way there and you can chuck your bikes in the back for the trip home. You'll also need a contingency in case someone has a mechanical failure at Holton-le-Moor or somewhere else remote like that.

Good luck fellas.

and i think some one should contact every pub we pass on the way just in case they decide to donate a pint  to each rider.......or is that just my dread of biking past an open pub

I definitely agree with that idea. Bacon and Egg sandwiches all round as well. The ideal contingency plan would be a few spare bikes in the back of a van I suppose this might mean a bike lend appeal to anyone who could lend. How much would a tranny van cost to rent?

I agree with Maccabilk, it will take some doing for you guys to complete this,Lincolnshire luckily has few hills (you should try walking back from Chesterfield town centre to where I lived after a night out, now that makes the hill at Lincoln look flat!

If you are going to do it you will need to get stregnth in your calf muscles as they will go tight very quickly.

Remember the average person can do around 10mph, after many miles this speed will slow down!

if you can do it then fair play but for many of you it will cause much pain

It will, but it will be well worth it if we manage to do it and town issue Lincoln with a good thrashing.

In your dreams matey!  muhahhaha  


£5 penalty for the side which finishes the lowest out of Lincoln or Grimsby in the BSP this season
£5 penalty paid by the other for the side that has the highest league scorer out of Lincoln and Grimsby
£5 penalty for which side gets the most points over the other covering both league games.

Bet between Impish and Mariner91, loser has to pay cheque to kids wards at Diana POW or Lincoln County Hospital.

i am definatley thinking about it ......and if it is a yes .....i will have to get into training .....but besides turn up with my bike i will be unable to offer little more in support.......should some one either approach cancer reaserch for sponser form or knock out some offical looking sponserforms on their comp

has anyone had any replies from Footie clubs ...police .....and we need at least 5 to 6 weeks to organise and get sponsership  so should we set a date for a cut off  for when we decide if we do it or not ....in my opinion we want at least 6 to do it other wise it becomes tthe  domain of the keep fit freaks who could do it in their sleep

Having just spoken to LCFC they are more than happy to back it as much as possible. ie via there website match day programs and also will allow charity buckets inside the ground. Waiting for the police liason officer to get back to me, but spoke to a copper at work today and he said they wouldnt block it and would more than likely provide a bike escort.

St Johns ambulance are also prepared to offer a volunteer to drive along to provide all first aid which is fantastic.

Going to get on the phone to telewag and echo to see if they are willing to back it.


Football isnt about life and Death,
It means much more
