Just about to set off tomorrow (25/04/16) on my first recorded ride for the IBA. Leaving St Etienne, France for Halifax, UK via the tunnel, S. London, Birmingham, Manchester and Penrith before cutting across the 66 and coming down the A1. I do a more direct route about 3 times a year on the bike but figured I would bump it up a bit to see how hard it could be. Will be leaving 42100 about 10 am. . If you see a strange looking bloke on an Explorer that'll be me. Lol. Wish me luck.
