DUNSTABLE DOWNS - Saturday 4th September

We're having a seaside adventure this time, for all those who love sand, sea, and fish and chips. 

This ride will have a good mix of fast sweeping A and B roads, and lots of country scenery, too. 

As usual, we'll be meeting in the same old car park (see link below) at 10am onwards, with an estimated departure time of 10:30am.   Make sure you have a full tank of fuel as we won't be stopping for about 100 miles.  Expect a round trip of about 250 miles.

http://maps.google.co.uk/maps?f=d&hl=en&geocode=&saddr=51.867461,-0.536825&daddr=&mra=dme&mrcr=0&mrsp=0&sz=19&sll=51.867452,-0.536951&sspn=0.001183,0.00235&ie=UTF8&t=h&z=19

Cornerman system will be used, as always. Below is a simple explanation for all those unsure what this means.

1. Lead rider (me) heads the group. Do not pass unless you decide you're leaving the ride.

2. Tail gunner (any volunteers?) is always at the back. Always stay in front of this rider.

3. If you are immediately behind the lead rider, and we cross a junction, stop to mark the corner if indicated to, or if you think it would be helpful to do so (it's never wrong to mark junction). Wait until the tail gunner arrives, and ride off ahead of them. DO NOT move until they reach you, no matter how long you are waiting!

4. If the lead rider stops to mark a corner (probably because he has no one behind him at the time) and you are the first rider to catch up, stop to take his place until the tail gunner arrives for you.

5. If there are no corner markers at a junction, assume to follow the road. Sometimes markers aren't needed if it is obvious.

6. MOST IMPORTANT: Ride at your own pace within the front and rear riders. The marker system will ensure you know where to go, without having to race to keep up, so you can stay safe.

"Sea" you all there!
