Default John O' Groats to Land's End on a 49cc - for Brads? Next Easter?

Following on from this thread: http://www.volkszone.com/VZi/showthread.php?t=714834

Anyone fancy giving it a go?

Easter 2012? Start on the Good Friday at JOG (maybe drive up with your moped/scoot in a van) and then ride south . . . maybe using all the smaller roads . . . a few 'vans' with camping gear (and tools) following?

I know there are a few 49'ers on here . . . we could set up a 'Just Giving' page and get it sponsored.

Please let me know if there's any interest and I'll get 'serious'.

I reckon both MCN AND Volksworld/Ultra would run a piece on this.

Or . . . London to Brighton with a mass 'swarm' in Parliament Square - protesting fuel costs?

Too 'political'?

That sounds like it would be hilarious fun!

I reckon it could be a really good bonding/friendship making (and memory making) experience . . . especially with 'talking bollox' around a camp fire each evening.

I like the sound of this, Brighton to London sounds good as well, depending on circumstances I'll either ride or support.

I have no interest what so ever in motorbikes of anykind ,I'm more interested in mtb and cars tbh , but this sounds like a right laugh and all for a very very good cause , im up for doing the ride or driving a support vehicle , I've got loads of camping gear as well !!!
