This is not about the ride being open to registration for the forthcoming début of the absolutely stunning new Friday Night Ride to the Coast route for Bristol to Barry. It is however a pre-ride thread, to give advance warning for anyone planning from travelling from distant parts (such as London) to get to the start in Bristol, that cheap advance tickets are now available to Bristol, from £15 from Paddington to Bristol Temple Meads. And if you book on the Hull Trains website, if you reserve a seat, then you can also book your bike reservation at the same time. This is one of the few train companies whose website lets you do this at the same time. Most make you ring up afterwards for a bike reservation, which is a bit hopeless. Please note that for anyone travelling from Paddington, as this is a Great Western service, you WILL need a reservation unless you have a folding bike. EDIT Cheap Barry to London Paddington tickets on Saturday 6th May have now also been released for £18:50.
