Hi just introducing myself.
I'm Charlie, Mike's orienteering friend from Yorkshire. Looking forward to joining you in June. Hopefully I can also join in some of the training in Derbyshire in May (and find out that I'm about the right speed on a bike!). I'm more of a runner than cyclist but same age as Mike.
Keep fit everyone!

Mike where are the files you mention?

OK - as I started looking at this anyway I have dumped some maps - 7 days - on 'files' above as a possible route - gives an easy 'rest day' for day 4. Trouble is we are going to have to do many laps around inverness castle at the end, as this route calculates to only 453 miles! That or we could just let Kevin map read...

Thinking about dates and stuff - I am assuming we will be looking at cycling either 7 or 8 days - travel up on 6th June cycling 7th to 14th inclusive? and back home Friday 15th.
I will be driving my Camper up with some/many bikes probably leaving 5th and back 16th (with hopefully volunteer drivers on cycle days ... Tess?). Hopefully Will, as nominal team captain... can plan routs from his list of links below? I will also now post training event in Derbyshire for May...

Hi Will, yes it would be - if only I could get my act together! Already this Saturday won't be possible but I've put in in the diary for the following one. Then I'm away on holiday and straight after that I move North 18th August! I will have a farewell exhibition in Crouch End by the way - would be great if some of you guys could make it! 27th July - 01st August - here is the invite:

Hi guys, long time no see! I'm sorry to have fallen off the radar especially as I owe one of you money for a coffee and scone! Anyway, I'd love to join you on this ride especially as I'm moving up to Inverness next month
