woody's link in a pic (child's play) didn't plop high points on but they are on this route
For your technical tantalizing titillation -we have this
Stu, I'm a bit of a luddite, can't seem to get onto any mapping sites to look at the rough route of Barry the baton as he comes through our patch. All I can get is a thick blue line passing somewhere to the north of Leeds and up into the dales...
Can you help? I know it's early days, but it would be nice to get a closer look at the sort-of-intended route.
Mick -I am with you in the luddite club. Woody did the guide but it is only a guide. I am not a mappy peop at all but someone will be involved in sorting that bit.
As you say, early days. We do need a mapper for this zone,though. Most zones are in the "very rough" stage.
The route hasn't been mapped proper yet as the route has not been decided. Below is a list of the Tops we must visit, the route is up to us all, You can decide which way you would like to go for the Top or Tops you'd like to visit. Hope this helps or have I made it as clear as mud LOL
Zone C25 Staffordshire 520 Cheeks Hill18 Derbyshire 636 Kinder Scout21 Cheshire 582 Black Hill50 Lincolnshire, Parts of Lindsey 168 Normanby Top, The Wolds42 Yorkshire, East Riding 246 Bishop Wilton Wold14 Yorkshire, West Riding 736 Whernside9 Lancashire 803 Coniston Old Man2 Cumberland 978 Scafell Pike3 Westmorland 950 Helvellyn10 Yorkshire, North Riding 788 Mickle Fell13 Durham 746 Burnhope Seat8 Northumberland 815 Cheviot !The Cheviot
mm -think it is useful for folk to look and consider roads between peaks (the flatter bits) unless we get a bus between them -lol We have to use us real brains really
who is/are co-ord/s?
Mmmm - however . . . often theres a 'flatter' or contouring off-road alternative - eg ridges, long distance paths etc, which have the added benefit of being more direct and with more interesting things to feast your eyes on than Tarmac. .
PS Stu if you need a definition of 'contour' or 'ridge' then please pop along to the mappers haven
Keep it fun
lol -I aint that far behind -used maps and that 36 years ago as an air cadet Did do some of the Cleveland way too with help of paper map and signs Good for me in them days. It is the puter stuff that scares me
taking the wee wee out of us Social Scientists -I dunno
Defo let the folks do the exactifying of the rough route. They will know area best and maps don't always tell you the dangers. It may mean expanding the distance we have to cover but safety must come first.
A look at all access points to high points is crucial. Some roads or tracks up may be eroded or with limited access.
ssshhh - i am not supposed to know anything about contours, ridges, vertical intervals, convexed, concaved (whoops!) let alone accessibility issues
I am good old, arty farty , pie in the sky Stu, the batty old creator and promoter of this lunacy. The one that talks about coasters spirit and philosophy and all that hairy fairy stuff I want you to do daft things like love Barry and cheer Rusty Rusk for taking Barry for 78 miles in dreadful conditions.

I am sorry folks, I have just been going through the motions of supporting this event. To me it is not a coasters event as it lacks a lot of what was special in 2010. I will not promote and have poste more detail on the main thread
this event may happen but I really do not want it to hold the coasters name for many reasons. I hope you good guys and gals will understand. They can call this something else and you can decide whetheryou want to be part of it.
If you miss Barry please book him on the Barry's Diary thread
all the best
