Me and EagleStan were sat in the pub last week talking about ideas for a new challenge and doing the coast of Lincolnshire and Yorkshire was proposed. More beers and it was then decided that this was too easy so it should be 500 miles and done in a day.

So setting off from Eagle at some unearthly hour we shall ride South to Grantham, Stamford and Spalding before heading to Boston and then the coast. After riding up the Lincolnshire coast we will cross the Humber bridge and head for Withernsea, followed by Hornsea, Bridlington, Scarborough and Whitby before reaching our northernmost point at Redcar. We shall then head inland and pick up a Southerly route avoiding the A1 before returning to Eagle via Lincolnshires Western border.

The date had been set - 30th July 2011, support arranged (thanks Pete) so we'd both better get our engines back together as they are in pieces on the bench at the moment.

This year our chosen charity is Cancer Research UK so if you would like to support us with a donation please visit http://www.justgiving.com/Toadinthehole

many thanks

It's a pleasure Nik. I get very excited about these amazing trips you do with Andy on Fizzies and will be trying hard to get your sponsorship up! The rock? I hear it's nice from Scarborough!

Please veryone, have a look at the just giving page, it's a great way to support a fine charity and if you are a tax payer your donation get's the added benefit of the tax!

Both engines now rebuilt and Stans electrics sorted, so now just need to get some miles in to check reliability of rebuilds before the run.

Thanks SD all sponsors are very much appreciated, I'm just starting to sweat as we get into the detail of the route and begin to realise how far it is - plus only 3 weeks away and still need a new barrel and piston.
