  1. anothersam replied to the thread England : East Yorkshire The ride through nowhere to somewhere - Spurn Head, Sat Sept 16.

    Well, between the OP and your post, I’m sold, but not a chance I can do this. Have put St Patrick’s on my list though – “over 200 faces of people, animals and grotesques looking down at you from the walls and arches” sounds like a colosseum where...

    No chance of that - 10 people have already booked the week in question! Looks like an interesting event though.

    I love Dartmoor, in all kinds of weather. (Which is a good job as that's what you tend to get) However, I have never taken my bike there, and don't intend to. For me it's a strictly walking boots place. Enjoy your ride @ColinJ

    That sounds like a perfectly good bike for this ride. Feel free to hold us back, if we’re not already busy holding you back. The Hastings-London line does indeed stop at Etchingham, until recently manned by the bestest station manager in the SE...

    We are considering this, subject to diary commitments. I've ridden parts of the Cuckoo Trail (on road bikes) going to from Enigma in Hailsham via Polegate station, and would like to ride more of it. Adam has wondered if Eastbourne has any...

    Cheers - I will check those places out when finalising my routes next week. I will be plodding up the climbs (as usual) but my cousin will probably launch himself up them. He is 20 years younger than me and much fitter.

    If you ate looking for some places tp stop and fule up Princetown is a good place as there is a cafe and pub and is pretty central on the moor! Widecombe is another place with a cafe and an excellent pub about a mile from the centre. If you are...

    It was a tongue in cheek comment. ;) Nothing is Absolute Proof, much like your response, it's just an opinion based on own experiences.

    It’s paved, though there are stretches, particularly at the beginning, with debris – twigs, leaves, etc. I rode it (especially slowly at the beginning because of people walking dogs) on a skinny-tyred road bike without a problem. Speaking of...

    Not impossible - I'm in Guildford the previous night (albeit touring a brewery). Is the Cuckoo Trail a gravelly, sandy one? Is (low) speed a problem?

    I am in the middle of doing the Bay Way right now! I will write a little report about it at the weekend after I get back.

    I was going to quote that vid too. Absolutely nobody will do what Simon did in that video. He still couldn't wreck the bearings, despite trying very hard. Personally, I use just a hose, but Karcher would be fine in my mind too. Video is...
