09:30, this is based on the Garmin BaseCamp riding time of nearly 5 hours, plus 3 P&T stops of up to an hour each, should be back by 17:30.

Count me in for the ride and for any evening dinner gatherings. My wife will probably join me as well. Her sister lives only a few miles away so we will stay with her and travel up to Peterborough.
So when is this “old enough to know better” supposed to kick in?

Is it possible to do more riding than long stops?  An hour at lunch is great, but other stops would be ideal around 30 minutes, or I might need my bed sitting around for an hour each stop lol

Looking at the PI website for Peterborough (Hampton) hotel, https://www.premierinn.com/gb/en/hotels/england/cambridgeshire/peterborough/peterborough-hampton.html?ARRdd=10&ARRmm=07&ARRyyyy=2020&NIGHTS=2&ROOMS=1&ADULT1=1&CHILD1=0&COT1=0&INTTYP1=DB&BRAND=PIthey are taking bookings from 1st May 2020 onwards.The Flex rate is currently £157, I booked the Flex rate in October 2019 at £158, for 2 nights, nothing paid upfront.Rather than mess up the RT meet thread, perhaps any relevant discussions can take place within this thread until we know for definite what's happening.


I originally paid £120ish for just the Saturday night. Mind, I was relatively late in booking. Now on for £97 flex and £84 semi flex.


Ive posted this in the correct thread to get it back on track. Seeing as I was guilty of taking the coronavirus one off topic seems the right thing to do.

Had cancelled my booking 4 days ago and been keeping eye on price hoping to go down further. You have forced my hand and now rebooked at £119 instead of £163.. so still good saving. not sure with premier inn but cancellation policy covers room not meal options with one of chains im pissed so not checking for you all sooey .

Update on our restaurants and food offering

"If you have purchased a pre-paid 'meal deal' or breakfast, this will be refunded when you cancel your hotel booking. If you are able to stay at the hotel but the adjoining restaurant is still closed, the meal will be refunded on arrival when you check in."

Booked it and paid at the time, if it's a go'er it's good, if not? Hey ho! Shit happens, I've never owned a bike for saving money.
