It looks as if the group in front of the hearse will comprise 50 or more riders.
As such we will present a rather large moving road block, so I expect everyone to be on their best behaviour.
It is entirely possible that the group will be split up at the left turn at Malden Rushett lights, or at the motorway roundabout where we turn right.
If the lights turn red, we expect the remainder of the group to STOP for them, if we get split up at either point, the leading riders will stop and allow everyone to regroup before continuing.
For the return journey we need to split into much smaller groups and resist the temptation to join up or race back.
Thankyou to everyone who has responded to say they will be coming back to Horton with us - some of you I have replied to, others not, but all have been noted. We wanted a ballpark figure to tell Horton the number of attendees. Anyone reading this who hasn't responded is still invited - we're not rationing places!
