Lan-Lan and I are probably going to do this providing we can sort out accommodation / transport. We'll probably make a weekend of it.

Anyone fancy it?

I do like the sound of that (it is pretty flat in that part of the country) and I am long overdue a visit to friends that live in that part of the world.....

I'll check my plans and get back to you

I'd be interested in trying out the 50 as my first foray into distance cycling if it is pretty flat. Irritatingly this would depend on how well my knee is recovering and how well my hamstrings adjust to cycling.

Can you keep me posted on what you end up doing accommodation/transport wise? - Then I'll make a decision as late as possible.

Yup no problem.

Norwich and surrounding areas are pretty flat IIRC.

Big Steev, Cherry (skater) and I did a similar ride around Norwich 2 years ago I think and it was nowhere near as flat as I expected it to be. That and the wet weather made for an interesting ride...

Costs of this seem prohibitive so we'll organise a similar distance ride on the day in London.

Don't know if anyone's already seen this but you can get ridiculously cheap advance train tickets to get you back if you book on southernrailways website by sunday. I can't join you for this one as im cycling to Brighton the day before, but we're doing Hastings the following weekend and have booked both trains back for 90p a head(including bike spaces)
