Rob, the webmaster for this site, was at Carlisle Station on Thursday 25 June 2009 (waiting for a train home from riding the Reivers Route with the cycling club) and spotted two guys with a bicycle and a problem 

They were from this [DEAD LINK]  - one sporting a very Pringled rear wheel with about 5 broken spokes - they had been forced to get a taxi from near Gretna to Carlisle to find a bike shop.

Even more of a coincidence was that while chatting about their ride so far they mentioned a B&B at Tarbet .... and referred to it as " ... the one with the crunchy towels, if you have read Rob & Joe's JOGLE ..."  not realising that Rob the webmaster was the same Rob!

Rob the webmaster has been busy and progress to transfer The BIG List has slowed . . . but submitted rides and new journals have been added to the site.  Hopefully you like what you see - please let us know (either way)

Off on a short cycle tour to the NE of England for 5 days so not a lot will happen on the site until 28 June 2009 .... keep sending the ride details!

From the submissions to the Events Calendar I've seen in the last few days it seems that there will be lots of riders on the road between mid-May and Mid-June (the current peak is 27-28-29 May with 8 rides listed.

Hover your mouse over the calendar on the RH side to see the rides listed - click for more details.

... and at the end of the year I might have a look back and publish a league table of LEJOG vs JOGLE rides, and perhaps some other stats too.
