Boy, I tell ya, no thread title grabs one's attention like one with your name in it! Look at you showing off, flaunting the Deutsch around the web. Hee hee.

I'll be on the road for two months this summer, July 1st to Aug 31st. Brittany to Orleans, then up to Normandy. Ferry to England, ride up through England, then Scotland, Ireland, then Wales, back to the continent. If I have any time left over, then ride through Belgium on the way home back to Germany.

You? Wanna join me?

Elvis, Cher, and Becnal. Now that is a sign of fame! You are infamous, young man. See you in Brittany. Should be getting airline tickets in the next couple of weeks.

I would love to join you, alas I don;t have time. I might join you for a section of your English leg, though, if that's okay, even if it;s just for a day. Where do you plan on going in the UK? I'm in Manchester, not the nicest area, but we have the Cheshire Plain on our doorstep, and it's on the way to the Lake District.

Let me know your plans.

That's right! I forgot you were a Mancunian! You'll have to join me for a ride coming from or going to the Lake District, for I shall be sure to be round those parts!

Yep, until June. Pretty cool job to get whilst on a bike tour! It's about 50 miles south of Bristol.
