Team L2L and various lovely helpers are in the midst of planning the final few hundred miles from Falmouth to Tower Bridge and we’re inviting you to come along and join in, holler and support.
First up is the bike leg from Falmouth to Oxford, starting next week Thursday 22nd at midday from The Moor, in Falmouth. We finish in Oxford on the 27th (finish point tbd.) Below is a guide to the daily breakdown plus a link to the full planned route on Mapmyride.
We shall have the YB tracker plotting our position every 10 minutes so that if you want to join in or wave or bring us cake (!) then you will be able to see where we are.
While out we shall tweet daily forecasts of times to leave the next morning so that you know what time to come and find us if you plan to join for a day/part of a day.
In a streak of luxury, I shall be ditching luggage and tent in favour of a motorhome (aka Party Bus) for me and my merry crew. Thanks to Chiltern Motorhome Hire for that. (NB If you plan to join then please plan your own food/ accommodation etc)
