 :thumbsup: Entered. Now all I need to work out is a suitable ECE route that will get me to the start in good time before 9am.

Those coffee geeks among riders might like to know the Pink Cabbage sells coffee beans bought specially in Papua New Guinea, by the sackload from Tilbury and roasted in their own machine in the front of the shop. Can't recall the price exactly, think it's about £7 a bag which is about half the cost in Royal Tunbridge Wells. Delicious coffee - I drink nothing else now*.


*Apart from some fine local ales.
**And red wine, obvs.

Route sheet updated- there's a new one way system at the start in Hailsham, which has now been completed, it also has traffic calming aiming at the boy and girl racers tearing through with random parking slots and high curbing! The mini roundabout @ Market St has been replaced with T/Lts, the surface has also been much improved with no need grit your teeth without the fear of loosing them!  ;D 

Note to team- we have bagged the sofa in the Pink Cabbage Café, so no falling asleep on duty!
Thanks mmmmmartin will have to sample the coffee, there is also vegan coffee on offer  :thumbsup:

A bit disconcerting to see a popup "Never miss a post from Tim Wainwright" which prompts a question of whether or not all Tim's photos will remain on Flickr.  I presume that Tim paid the subscription  - could it be transferred to anyone else?

Coincidentally I visited the forum less than 2 hours after listening to Joan Bakewell's radio 4 programme on death. Next week's one will cover the whole area of what happens to our on-line stuff after we die.

Not sure on this one, I knew Tim and we rode many a mile / km together on events. I'm sure he would of wanted these photos made available.. O:-) I can remove the link either way, pm me if this is your wish..

On a lighter note, many thanks for all of your entries, route checking will commence in a few weeks.. Org

My ECE route will stick to gritted roads, so it’ll be flatter than it might otherwise be :)

Updated route sheet on calendar page as of today. Noting drastic to report, just a set of lights missed out @ 1.50km for some reason on the route out of Hailsham. Some uneven road surfaces also need noting. Standing water could = potholes! :o

Thank you for your entries, entries close on the 17/ 1/ 18, or whenever it reaches the limit.

Mad Jacks JSM is now open for business  :thumbsup:
