    Hi all

    I recently e-mailed this to all those who had enquired about the tour, but I though I would just post a copy on the forum as well


    Hi

    The planning for the tour is progressing well.

    We have had our first confirmed riders from: USA, Canada, Germany, Russia, England and Scotland with strong interest from riders from Australia, New Zealand and France so it looks like we will have a really good mix of nationalities.

    The route planning is close to complete, although I am sure there will be a few more tweaks to be made. There will be some options for more experienced riders who wish to do longer distance, but we will probably address these on the tour. If you have anything you would particularly like to see or do please let me know and I will try to incorporate them in to the plan.

    We will now be meeting slightly earlier on the 7th of June at Velocity Cafe / bicycle workshop in Inverness: www.velocitylove.co.uk. This is a great little cafe which was specifically set up as a hub to promote cycling in the local area. I am hoping to have a few local cyclists to escort us through the city as we commence our tour. If you need accommodation before the start of the tour or after it finishes please let me know as I may be able to get group rates.

    I am also delighted to announce that the catering will be handled by Alison Sykora.

    I have worked with Alison on several press promotions and exhibitions over the years and have always been amazed at her ability to produce amazing looking food in what others would find quite challenging conditions. Her work has been featured on several cookery shows on TV and she is considered to be one of the top food consultants in the country. Alison also regularly caters for racing tall ships and for Team Saxo Bank on the Tour De France so will be well placed to cater for our needs.

    Please let me know if you have any questions.

    Regards

    Alan

      Final planning

      Hi all

      Spring has sprung in the Scottish Highlands and we are now in the final stages of planning the “Unicycle Into the Skye” tour.

      Registrations for the tour will have to be complete by the end of March as we need to confirm numbers, book support drivers, campsites etc etc. We may be able to take registrations after this, however there will be a penalty charge for late entry.

      For those already registered could you please let me know your travel plans (if you haven’t done so already) and let me know you if will need extra accommodation before or after the tour. If you haven’t already made your travel plans and would like some help, just let me know.

      Hope to hear from you soon.

      Regards

      Alan
