Executive decision taken. I've booked 4 nights commencing Thurs 24th Jan, Dormitory 1. I transferred £72 to the bank account detailed in Sue's email and sent an email/text combination to confirm who I was etc.

Filled the form in but missed post. Have transferred 50% deposit to account referred to. Sue knows we are coming on the first week end above.

Sue was asking who this Bob Hadfield bloke was. I told her I'd no idea.

We may well be joined by Alison (Littlewheel). She is likely to being her camper van rather than stay in the hostel.

I'll try to get a booking done tonight.   Is it online ?  I've seen references to paper forms , which is rather quaint.....

Andrew have emailed yourself and Kim a copy.  It is a bit of a tortuous way of doing things but I imagine they are trying to avoid stag/hen parties etc. Remember its for the earlier week end.

The form has Sue's bank details so you can do a transfer. I just included all the details asked for in the email. I texted her my bank details so she knew which payment was mine.

I just mailed Sue, can't get through on the phone and unable to sort out the booking forms. Asked her to mail me the idiots guide to booking the 24th, 25th and 26th. Hope I can get sorted.

Okay, I've emailed Sue the details and made a BACS transfer, offering to send a physical form if they really need a signature.  And sorted out some train tickets to and from Lancaster.

Unfortunately transport to Lancaster involves a combination of Northern Fail (who appear to be cancelling every 2nd train) & Virgin  :(    Or train to Clapham itself via Leeds, which is Northern Fail all the way.

Tried to book tickets via the WestCoast site & none of the available trains showed as having bike reservations available.  I guess I'll have to go down to Lime St & speak to a Human.

I reckon this thread deserves a bump.  Looks like there's still room at the inn...

Toying with the idea of coming for the first three nights.  It might just be possible.

Do we have any plans for while we are there ?  Up that lovely "cycle way" Simeon took us last time, the one surfaced with boulders ?

Would be great to see Ruthie and Marcus. I am upfrit to go up top and wander a al Simeon  Subject to weather etc etc. Need to change tyres. You will remember part of the last ride was much flatter .....ahem nudge nudge... and included cafes. If you are feeling keen there is always that bastard hill at Settle.

If Kim brings her usual planning apparatus there should be plenty of opportunity to sort some day rides out. Remember OS maps include digital copies now.
