I am travelling from Lindale, GOS if anyone wishes to car share. I can meet up on route, either car OK. Mine is electric so I will have to Charge on return if my car is used. Not fussed either way. Cheers George

George, I am very happy to share ..we are both doing tomorrow and Friday so we could do one each? However I live in Penrith so you might not feel it worth stopping after you've travelled all the way from Lindale already.

Hi Nicola, thank you, I am sharing with Michael tomorrow.

However nothing at the moment for Friday, I would be more than happy to car share, stopping of at Penrith wouldn't be a problem as it's on route and a later start.

We could WhatsApp directly to make arrangements.

Cheers George
