Post by PHILinFRANCE » Wed Jul 03, 2019 1:07 pm

Hi all this is a shout out about us two expats arriving in Portsmouth at 6am on the 12th July heading for the ABR Rally via Bobonelegs to RV with a few guys to ride the fosse way towards Ragley

Tramp unfortunately can't make it but Herman mentioned he might join us to help with the language and what side of the road to be on :lol:

I will be out and about that day but not until the afternoon, so probably to late for your needs.

Ok, here are some approx timings then seeing as there may be quite a few of us by time we reach Bob's :shock: (I hope he's got enough tea cups)

If you two are having breakfast with Herman I reckon you could get away from his pad by 8am, that means you should get to mine by 10am. Tony and Leigh can either come to mine at that time or we can meet them at Castle Coombe.

We could meet Sarge at the Crown (near jct18 M4) at 11am and then ride up the Fosseway to Bob's to get there by 1pm.

What does everyone think? have I missed anyone out? All timings are VERY approximate :mrgreen:
