    I'm now planning on riding this.

    What time are CCE types meeting at Bitts Park carpark, east side in the sun?

    You can find me having a lay down here:

    DaveC - had given up on this as no one said they were going (my bike club are doing a 200 miler to the north)

    So did not book train or owt, but do have a big light

    Won't be doing it this year, left it too late to book a train and my audax bike needs work done.

    I understand the ride will be on The Adventure Show this year...

    Really enjoyed it last time I must say.

    I'm still hoping to do this, but likely won't know if I am until late next week. If I do, I'll probably get a train to Alnmouth or Morpeth and cycle to Carlisle from there.

    Oh not more of those Hitachi cramped in like a tin of beans trains, with little bike space or relaxing areas, I took the train pennie express with no booking on 12 may. I actually thought you needed a booking as did one of the other 2 random cyclists that had booked. The Glasgow train will cost a fortune there is no cheap alternative that I have found to trans pennie express

    Does anyone have any advice for getting to the start? Riding there isn't an option and I assume I'm too late for a bookable bike slot on a train now.

    I hope it's ok to post the following email address here although they might be fully booked by now.

    Next Steps

    If you are interested, please send an email to ridetothesun.transport@cramond-scouts.org.uk providing:

    · your name, address, mobile number and email address

    · the number of coach seats, bikes and bags you wish to book.

    We will reply with:

    · an invoice with the sum payable

    · your booking reference

    · details for payment via online banking.

    Thanks. I have just bought a couple of train tickets from someone on the RTTS facebook page. So if anyone would like the other at face value then pm me for details.

    @morepathsplease, the scouts are not fully booked but the waiting list is currently empty. http://www.cramond-scouts.org.uk/ridetothesun.transport.html

    Murray Moves (Recombodna?) is doing a bike cargo run to the start. Details here: http://createsend.com/t/y-C961C4B2F3769086

    @DaveC, all being well gembo and myself will materialise from the train station just after 8pm and will arrive at the park shortly after that.
