Good luck with that. I dont see the attraction myself.

What's not to like Baz1?  There are no time limits it's just 52 strange locations that I would otherwise not visit, there are many Lighthouses and a lot of coffee shops so I'll set out and visit them in sequence giving a purpose to my riding, I'll stay in Airbnb's and visit relatives whilst in their neck of the woods.  All the time riding my trusty TTSE on a very wide variety of roads in this wonderful island of ours.  I call it 'Living the Dream!'
Love, light, and kindness,

How many miles/ hours per day is that?

As many or as few as I want. It is entirely up to you. It is just a way of recycling hard earned data of unusual landmarks that were used in the 2019 Brit Butt Rally.

Conformed a trip with friends to the Pyrenes and Picos de Europa in Spain in late may. Just finalised the detils for a 2 1/2 week trip to Albufiera in Portugal mid june. The lads I worked with are flying down and I will ride there and back. Just booked digs and boats for 6 of us to have a week at the Manx Grand Prix in august. Roll on the warm rain.

Sounds a couple of great trips there 1675. We did Portugal the past few years & couldnt believe how cheap it was. If you havent bene before, read up on payment for the toll roads.

Looks like I will be avoiding the motorways, which is no bad thing.

Well so much for riding plans in 2020. Missed my Trip to Normandy in April, the trip to the lakes in June is also looking doubtfull. I cancelled the Germany trip in September and have booked a house in Fort William for 5 days instead to do a bit of touring in the highlands. Lets hope 2021 turns out a bit better.

Well, a bit of an update on my 2020 plans, where I hoped to get the mileometer clicked over to 100,000 miles with a trip to the Pyrenes and another to Portugal. Sadly, due to this virus "carry on" my bike isn't even taxed for use and the farthest I have been is my in laws to deliver food, and my mothers to eat it. Both are only 3 miles away and I walked back from mums the long way round tonight (6 miles)
I may tax the bike from the 1st june, but just had word that the Manx GP is cancelled this year as well.
Still, look on the bright side. Costa and McDonalds are re opening!
