The preparations of the British bikes last year were a credit to their
owners. Driving round last week reminded us that this Tour is as
punishing to the brakes as any Alpine trip and easily functioning
controls make all the difference to your enjoyment. The Scott’s rear tyre
yielded two thorns at last week’s inspection.
Rally Plaques. Please make provision to fit an A5 They are
self-adhesive vinyl, so you can stick them onto your own backing
support. Like everything else on the ISDTW – except courtesy – it is not
compulsory to display the plaque.
HQ. We’ll be staying at either the Three Wells or Acorn Court in Howey.
Of course you’re not really interested in all that motor cycling stuff.
