It seems that the Easter to May Day holiday bonanza has sparked loads of E2E rides - the calendar here is listing a peak of 17 rides during the week between the two Bank Holidays.

Looking forward there isn't a day until 17 September 2011 that the calendar isn't listing rides.

. . . and if you are riding please don't forget to submit any accommodation or cycle shop listings to the website.


 

I've been inundated with enquiries about places to stay for riders planning their rides - if you are riding please, please send details for places where you have stayed ... there's a simple form in  The Directory  section - we check with the establishment and then publish the listing (I'm also listing bike shops)


 

If you are looking for some rides for "training" there's not a lot to beat a 100km organised ride - and loads are available supporting a good cause ...

The Links menu tab (on the left, under Resources) has been updated to present links in alphabetical format - if you have websites to recommend please let me know.
