    I've just been to a briefing and planning meeting. All I've got to say is WOW:biggrin:

    I can't give details out (and hopefully I won't receive abusive emails again calling me arrogant and smug by saying that) but the official launch is on the 25th when the new cities, sponsors and attractions will be announced.

    And Leicester has a LOT to be proud of:biggrin:

    Hilldodger -Blackpool is mentioned but not on the site - I assume it's "Ride the Lights" with a bang of sponsorship ?

    Did Manchester Sky ride last year, and the 'Ride the Lights' - brill fun !

    Each city will have its own web page with full details very soon. I think most places are still ironing out minor details on there route before full announcements are made.

    Very tempted to go to the Leicester one. Am busy (double booked already) for the Birmingham one.

    Need a spare pedaller for one of your bikes, Hilldodger?
