Right with just over 4 weeks to go hope you are are getting the miles in just to say there are no changes to the route or the stops but to make it clear i don't know what the Mcdonalds menu is like at 3.30am so i would recommend bringing enough food and water to last till we get to Towcester(111 miles)because the options to stop are very limited.So please don't turn up with one bottle and no food Vincent,Hope to see you all on the 23rd. :lol:

And just to bore everyone with stats we start in the West Midlands go through Worcestershire just touch the tip of Gloucestershire then Warwickshire and Northamptonshire and finally Leicestershire to make the 6 counties and the route is also within a 60 mile radius from the Black Horse. :roll:
