Just a quick report that the site is alive and kicking, although progress has slowed on transferring the old Ultimate List reports to the Journal Library (Rob the webmaster has holidays to take and a bike to ride you know!) ... as the summer fades more time will be devoted to getting everything in order.

The areas that are up-to-date are the list of rides and new Journals ... don't forget to send yours!

Is anyone out there a graphic designer that can help with the header on the site? 

I've got lots of ideas and can do all the editorial and technical web stuff, but I'm no designer.  The heading on the site is a "quick and dirty" montage of photographs to get the site going . . . I would really like something rather smarter and more professional looking.

If you can help then please e-mail   This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.   (sorry, there's no money involved, but a designer would of course get a mention and link on the site)

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!

Rob (the webmaster) and Jon's ride from Calais to Montpellier in September 2008 is now listed in the Journals section with an extract of their book - including a foreword by Edward Enfield, author of Downhill All The Way.

The full version of Wine-ding Down Through France, complete with marked route maps etc will be available soon.

The listing of E2E rides is showing a peak 0f 14 rides on the road on 27 May 2009 .... and every single day from the last week of April to the second week of August has at least 1 ride listed.

To list your ride and/or journal/blog just click the appropriate link on this site and complete the form.

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.

If you use the translation module you will need to switch it off with the X in the Google header band that appears.
