OK - 22 days to go  :celebrate:

Finalised Saturday Routes (am and pm) are in the attached Zip file  :028:

Three formats:
.itn - for TomTom.
.gpx - for Garmin.
.rtf - TYRE default - Also retains a lot of additional routing info that the .itn and .gpx files do not.

Routes should not change much, but if running late or the weather is bad, they can be easily shortened.

Based on the past weeks local weather and a bit of reverse psychology - bring lots of warm and waterproof gear, then it will be hot and sunny  :notsure:

I wont be able to do any stopovers due to work, so looks like i'll be riding up with Mike Sat am, we'll have a sandwich in the café and see you when you get there at 1pm, and then we'll join the pm ride, at least I won't have missed It altogether..... :028:

  :002: :002: Thanks, Richard.  :028: :028:

 Enough relative relief there to provide a noticeable difference in temp. between the tops and the bottoms.

 And those gradients  :5: Almost vertical. Anything but a Red Mk 1 is going to have to carry a 5 tooth f.s. to climb them  :whistle:

 I'm going through my annual envy phase  :138:.
