    Forum posters from England...

    If things go like I hope, I will be taking a tour in England in early spring, 2006. Sure, I would prefer to go a little later in the year, but I don't have control over the timing.

    Anyway, I would deem it an honoUr to meet some of you Brits that post here. If you're interested in letting a yank buy you a draft or a cup of tea, let me know either here or through pm the city/town where you live. I'm still researching my route so I may be able to work it in my plans. We could meet at your favoUrite pub, cafe or somewhere.

    Contact MichaelW. He's one of the longer members on bikeforums, and he seems like a neat guy.

    Happy travels!

    I noted you correctly spelled honour with a "U". Might I add with much respect that in reference to a glass of beer drawn from a barrel or keg it is "draught".

    Cheers,

    Which airport are you using?
    In early spring you may want to stick to the SW corner of England, it tends to be a bit warmer and spring comes a couple of weeks sooner but there are no guarantees. Ive had a perfect week of riding in April, but in May it snowed.
    I am in the East whch is a tad cooler, drier and flatter.
    If you are in Norwich, you can get a round in at the Fat Cat

    Will be flying into Gatwick. I will be spending a few days in London prior to my tour in other parts of England. Thanks for the weather info. Comes in handy. I anticipate cool temps and will be prepared accordingly. I will be staying in the warmth and comfort of B&B's, but I will also consider hostels. Camping is not an option. I'm getting soft.
