successful pre-run

and the route is now as follows - ill get sorted a downloadable map or something in the next week or so but this is an overview

rough plan

just in case you were wondering...

the half baked plan for the route this years tipple run is.... 150 miles a day on janky old slow bikes on back lanes is about what i have had planned in the past so nothing crazy and hopefully some beautiful roads. the hope is that the sky will have run out of rain by the time the run comes round

29th aug cheddar gorge to newquay [150 miles]
30th aug newquay to dartmoor [150 miles]
31st aug dartmoor to dorset steam fair [100 miles]
1st sept doss about at the steam fair / most likely a little potter out if you havent had enough riding by then
2nd sept ride home

full swing

the highly technical well oiled machine that is tipple run HQ. getting things in place for the weekends pre-run

pre-run 2012

been a crazy strange busy wet year, spring never came etc, well - eventually i have got my act together and actuallly managed to find some time i can take off work to do the pre-run for this years route. later this month, nothing like cutting it fine eh. well - at least the route will still be fresh in my addled memory, never know - i might not get lost.. maybe
