A thorough recce run has been carried out to look at petrol stops.
Route cards will be given out to each rider and the round trip is approx. 320 miles, Mobile phone numbers will be given to each rider in the unlikely event of a breakdown.
Please note! We all follow the lead rider – and even if he goes wrong, we all must follow until the mistake is realised.
It is the responsibility of each rider to bring their own petrol and if you have a rack it is to be carried on your scooter. Additional cans can be carried in the back-up van – but all cans must be of the correct spec.
A disclaimer will need to be signed by each rider exempting the ‘Bring Me Sunshine Tour’ and the Lost and Lonely SC from any responsibilities,

The third stop will be made after 30 miles to top-up from petrol cans if required.

The first fuel stop at 37 miles.
The second stop is at 44 miles.

THE FINAL RUN HOME
The ride returns, via Goole, allowing riders to meet back at the starting point in Amcotts for a celebratory pint and photoshoot.
