That's the first time I've heard the Severn called a slightly deeper ford! It actually might work with one of the routes I have in mind.
I ain't riding through any fords! my technical riding skills are zero...  :nap

OK, listen up folks!

The route is set and we've checked it over seems good except for the amount of traffic on Fridays! The run is about 130 miles long contains two fords and about three miles of off road (all optional), steam trains, Roman roads, Trout farms, Ice cream vans, and National Trust villages.

It will start and finish in Lechlade on Thames, for which I attach the accomodation list.

Sorry H, I wanted to put you all in Moreton in Marsh, or Bourton on the Water, but neither campsite wanted to accept tents! So it's Lechlade by default. Besides it's closer to Nick.

Any questions?

OK guys some Lechlade info.  Lechlade is 12 miles north of Swindon.  Has few pubs and a big bridge over the Thames.  Not a huge place, with not much else there so our options are somewhat limited.  In South of England terms there is not much near Lechlade in terms of other towns, Swindon and Cirencester are the next significant places of note.

Directions:
From most directions South, the easiest way to Lechlade is via the M4 J15 and up the A419
From the North West, it is probably M5 J11a then A417 via Cirencester and Fairford
From the North East it's the A420 via Faringdon.  Nice route too if memory serves.

Bike Shops:
Your nearest triumph dealer is: http://www.bladegrouptriumph.co.uk/
Your nearest big motorbike shop is http://www.megamotorcyclestore.co.uk/

Accommodation:
There is a camp site, identified by John as being the most appropriate is: http://bridgehousecampsite.co.uk/ This is slightly to the south of the town over the large bridge.  Easy 2min walk into town.  Another place to stay would be: http://newinnhotel.co.uk/ Ivor and I have booked in here.  It is in the town.  Some availability left.

Otherwise take your pick from John's list: http://www.lechladeonthames.co.uk/accommodation-3/

Pubs:
There are several pubs in the town and given they are all fairly close together I suggest we try them all in due course.  Apparently the Crown is the best for real ale.

Fuel:
Texaco north of the town.  Maybe a half mile out of the centre.

Yeah. I didn't actually see your post above mine before I'd booked.

I'm sure a pillow pressed securely over your head will make it all go quiet. :augie :sleepy1
