Report for Birmingham to London    Schedule for Birmingham to London

The timing was less than ideal here.  I had ridden a 12 hour on the Sunday.   I'd just about got everything cleaned up and put away during Monday.   And then the fax machine delivered the charts which said "North winds on Thursday!".

Some cuttings, schedules, reports etc relating to Edinburgh-Liverpool

Mildly amusing note to add concerning the timekeeper from Edinburgh.   As noted in the report, I struggled to find someone.  When Jock Shaw agreed to do the job, there was just one remaining hurdle to deal with.   As he wasn't on the RRA list of timekeepers, the RRA Secretary needed to give him a ring to check that he was suitably experienced for the job.   The conversation went something like this:
"Could you describe your level of experience as a timekeeper please?"
"Do you remember the Commonwealth Games was based in Edinburgh a few years back?"
"Yes, sure"
"I was Chief Timekeeper for the Track Cycling"
(slight pause)
"I think that will be fine thanks!"

I also submitted a schedule for London to Brighton and back.  I'd moved my start point 2 miles south, to the summit of the North Downs.

And another schedule for London to York.
