I have spent most of today working out routes and driving them via Google Street View
All tour options will be driver focused with a good mix of roads.

The plan is to meet for breakfast near Cheltenham, go through the routes and two way radios. Leaving before 11am
There will be a few Photo/leg stretch/Pee stops (don't do all 3 at once), then a stop for lunch before heading back towards Cheltenham.

Full sat Nav route itinarys will be supplied and I can help you install those. I will supply garmin files but I can also convert into TomTom. Otherwise you will get a list of post codes for the meet points.
I'm not a fan of printed routes for drivers to try and follow, i've seen a few accidents and very near misses with drivers looking at directions.

Anyone without a sat nav will be put inbetween those that do.

If numbers are high, we will head out in smaller groups to avoid people trying to all keep up. However on the quieter roads, this won't be a problem.

Here is a video of one of my previous tours, sadly i can't promise roads quite as good or as empty :grin:

Is there any nav files/links that can be used for iPhone? Apple, Google or Waze apps? Assume a list of waypoints or postcodes can be manually entered into one or more of these apps?

I'm not 100% on board currently as my wife works 2 Saturdays per month and May is not 100% confirmed yet.
