try not to hate me
It's not an awful hotel, by the marina, which is a bit scenic, and surprisingly, there's a passable Japanese restaurant 5 mins walk away (if that's any help)
a name and a vague location would be even more help i'll need some dinner when i get in on Friday evening.
Yes Ma'am! I'll get onto google right now and look up "Japanese restaurant Lincoln" for you.....



......to find that it's now closed. Shame.

Cycling the C2C (Coast to coast) with Debbie. Whitehaven to Tynemouth. Our friends' daughter has leukaemia so we are supporting them and cycling for the Teenage Cancer charity. I hope the rain stays off!
Tynemouth is lovely. Went there for our summer holidays for the last two years.
Oh and Happy Birthday Kitty - only a kitten really!

Are you aiming to do it in three days?
Let us know how you get on.
Taking it easy and doing 4 days. Taking it easy is relative... I was up at 4 this morning to drive up there. Started the ride at 12. 1 st puncture at 12.20. (debbie) 2 nd puncture 4:00 pm (Debbie) then we lost another bike when the rear mech snapped off a brand new bike. I seem to be defacto spanner man. In bed now quite sore!

I've had a very lazy day.

Left the house once to go to the shop and the rest of the time I stayed home and wrote stuff.

Sounds perfect. I ran errands on the scoot. Ran into another MVer in a parking lot. Glad to see him even though he sold his scoot.

Later went to the local dealer to look for a specific gear item (didn't find) and was asked a billion questions about my scoot by some large CC motorcycle riders. I quote (in southern, North Carolina accent), "so darlin', when you gonna upgrade?" As he was laying around on the grass next to his giant bike.
I replied calmly with a wry smile, I downgraded. I don't need a big bike to prove myself. He later stated to his friend (I overheard as I had my scoot idling prepping to ride out, something I don't think he was aware of since he probably can't hear crap on that big bike), he was afraid to try "one of those thangs".

The mechanical gods gave us a wide berth today, no punctures or breakages. TFFT!

However the rain and gale force winds started as we commenced the 8 mile climb up Hartside. Rain forecast for tomorrow!

We should be in full storytelling mode at the Italian Day
I'm holding you to turn that jealousy into a positive and do the French WVD with us in 2016
Have just been laughing out loud catching a bit of Two Greedy Italians on TV, so have just ordered both series on DVD on a whim as they're such a hoot, not to mention the glorious food Laughing emoticon

I had all planned for my own iron butt attempt today gear laid out, scoot packed, levels checked etc..

Weather window was perfect for my route, all paperwork and maps ready..

Except I couldn't fall asleep to get a good night sleep. I was so disappointed. Damn anxiety. I al prepped and ready. Route ready (no GPS). All I need now is real rest and a good weather window for my route.

My iron butt is for me. It is to prove something to myself and ony bucket list among other things. Keeping my fingers crossed weather on my route prove welcoming as well as sleep visits me on the same night. I hit 4 hours until go time last night and had to call it. 5 hours sleep was doable with some red bull back up on the last 1/2 but as 4, then 3 hours sleep.... Damn. Sucks I insomnia-ed myself out of my own iron butt planning. I am primed and ready though

I didn't let my plans be public for the pressure to keep ones own plans...

I know what a challenge this will be after following so many others ironbutt and cannonball journeys.

I honor all the serious riders and endurance riders. I will eventually join your ranks. I may not be able to wrench and tool with ya bit someday I can ride next to you.
