    Get off the train and do it now! Otherwise you will die wishing your life away commuting.

    Soryy Alex, it's the voices in my head getting louder, lol.

    They speak a lot of sense though.

    I think they must do that issue every year lol. I read the one from 2 years ago and had it all booked about a week later. Fantastic experience.

    I reckon about 10 days if you do the whole coastline, but you will miss a lot of good riding.

    Andy. I liked your idea to meet the family at the holiday destination and get a tour in before and after.
    I ran it past my good lady wife boss, and got an earful
    Hmmm.

    Ok.

    Simply go down the path of ‘its gonna be a bit of a shit holiday next year’ planning due to budget and when shes truly bought into it, drop in a much better option (but only if you ride there and back due to the savings, ‘cos its cheaper than flying *cough*).
