Well, the Amsterdame ride is getting scaringly close, so we have started to think about the more practical parts of doing it - in this case accommodation. We need to get this sorted out now, as the ride is over the last bank holiday weekend in May, so I have a feeling York might be packed with tourists. We have to come over on the Friday to be there in time for the early start on Saturday and would like to probably stay over on the Tuesday when we get back to go home without any rush on Wednesday. So, we need somewhere cheap to stay for 2 people, as close as possible to the designer outlet (which, from what I remember is a bit out of town) so we don't have to start by getting lost first thing in the morning and cycle another 20 miles before we have even started, and also somewhere we can store the bikes securely. Has anybody out there got any ideas? Thanks!
