    I didn't manage to make it to this ride last year but I'm definitely up for it this year. I have just booked my train ticket and will be leaving Ipswich station at 17.43.

    The date is Saturday 20th July 2013

    Who else is going?

    I am doing it, only I will be joining the ride at Epping. By the time I get to Epping I wont be far off the distance as if I had got to the start at Hackney.
    Good luck with it. Have you seen the DD page on Facebook. https://www.facebook.com/groups/DunwichDynamo/

    You can't miss me. You will think I am a roundabout. I am taking a little cooker and eggs and bacon to fry up on the beach at Dunwich thus avoiding the half hour queue at the cafe, and just for a bit of a laugh really!

    I am looking at about 12 hours total time, including stops so you will probably be well ahead of me.

    I'm still recovering some damaged ribs following an 'off', I currently can't sit or stand unsupported for more than a few minutes without feeling like I've been knifed in the back. Riding is fine for some reason!

    In, provisionally (ticket from Diss on the 1317 booked). This will be my second DD. First time around in '11 I kept faffing on the ride to a minimum and made the beach in just under nine hours (tailwind...which meant the ride to Ipswich was slow, allowed three hours but nearly didn't make the train). Hopefully same sort of performance this time...

    I'm doing it this year, have got a train ticket booked (but no bike reservation) on the 1741 from Halesworth nearish Southwold getting in to Liverpool St at 1955. My £8 contingency is another train ticket this time with a bike booking getting in at 2055 but I wonder if this is cutting it a bit fine, it just depends on when the bats leave the cave at London Fields...

    It looks like I will be a fair bit behind you guys?

    People leave at odd times well after the advertised start (and before), some when the pubs close!. I am sure you wont be alone on the road.

    I'm doing it. Did the ride in the daytime a few months ago to see how it would go, and tbh, I'm not looking forward to the all night ride.

    I'm not looking likely for this year due to it being on the first anniversary of the passing of my FiL. Disappointed not to be doing it, but there'll always be next year, when the dates won't clash.

    Mentally planning to do the Essex 100 on the 1st September as my next 100 miler, unless I am able to tempt @Andrew_Culture & @4F for a bit of an informal run out

    Shame Matt, cheeky 100 miler sounds good but for me it will be mid Sept at the earliest before I am free

    I'm up for a ride this Sunday AM, possibly not 100 miles though.
