Not spectacularly interesting, but I read it again the other night and thought it may be of interest to a couple of others...
Toying with the idea (and I do mean toying at the moment, no serious plans) of doing a similar thing again in the future - do get in touch if you fancy doing a similar thing.... the hardest part was doing it alone!! And not having a gel-seat........
Nice write-up on a fair old ride - pity your personal demons detracted from the joys of the A9/A99 north of Inverness, there really is some cracking riding to be had there!
Often thought about doing something like this myself, but "thought" is as far as it ever gets!
Maybe an NTV Riders relay round Britain? Something like passing the Golden Conrod from point to point running round the coast, so that no one rider has to do the full X thousand miles. Do we have enough members spread around the country to do this .... admins?
Like I say, just a thought .....
PS - Gel seats: had a couple from DanMedica South cut into previous bikes seats - much squishy botty comfort. Thinking about a strap-on (ooer!) for the NTV as my seat's in too good a condition to want to start pulling it apart.
As another thought I have a small teddy about 3 inches tall. If we phograph this on each members bike as it moves round the UK with pins / pics added to the members map (members need to meet to do this - Not just post the teddy - both bikes in the shot . It can then be posted (Not as heavy as a golden conrod ) to each country encouraging our growing global community to meet.

I do like that idea... be a lot more interesting than the Olympic torch!!
The other thought I had (as the last one was "end 2 end") was a "tower 2 tower" (or similar concept) - maybe Blackpool to the Eiffel Tower?? Though maybe we need to find something that includes the Netherlands to get all the Admins involved??!?

Not wishing to sound too nerdy, but perhaps if an Administrator sees this they could consider a poll for interest in maybe a 2013 Round Britain charity ride/event?
If there's only a couple of us up for it on the poll then we can knock it on the head quickly.... but if there are several of us then over the coming months we could maybe look into some ideas and possible dates?
I realise I'm quite new to the forum so don't want to appear too keen...
