What is the longest day?
The Longest Day Charity Fund Raising Rally held on the nearest weekend to the Summer Solstice, organised by TeamXRV, Link to the TLD website starting on Saturday 20th June in Edinburgh ending on The Longest Day June 21st i London

Whos it for?
2008 funds were raised for We Are MacMillan
2009 funds are going to be raised for The Make A Wish Foundations


What route is being used?
Starting early at Edinburgh Castle then catch the 10:05hrs ferry at Troon for Larne, with P&O Irish Sea Ferries, ride down through Belfast, through Dublin and then to Rosslare for the 21:15hrs Ferry back to Fishguard with Stenaline, and then we then head for Cardiff and finally finishing in London, here's the Google maps link

Who can take part?
Anyone who is up for a 700mile journey that will take 24 hours using a mix of motorway and A roads and ferries, to register just enter your name on the participants page and PM or ask anyone who is registered for the ferry booking codes / order forms.
Or you can PM myself or my email nickoneillATfreenet.de

Will there be Dancing Girls to meet us in London
With a bit luck the Nora Batty appreciation dancers will be able to make their topless début

How much will it cost?
The rally covers 700 miles so fuel for that plus getting to Edinburgh and getting back home from London
Ferry prices are posted below
The Belfast - Dublin section of motorway has a €1.00 toll for bikes so beg borrow or steal a Euro coin and save it somewhere safe

Will the ferry companies be giving a discount
Yes, P&O have offered us the first crossing at £27.50 and have a booking form attached below as a pdf which needs to posted or faxed back.
Stenaline have offered us their Event rate at £35.00 I have the booking codes and will send these via PM or email, if you do not receive them please PM or email myself
nickoneillatfreenet.de they are event codes and not made out to the individual so I cant post them public.

Can I join in for a section or two?
Yes if you cant make the full route your more than welcome to meet us getting off the boats and ride the rest, it would be great to have welcoming committees waiting for us.

How can we make a donation?
The easiest way is through the Just Giving The Longest Day 2009 page that way for every ten pounds you donate the Make A Wish foundation receive almost £12 through Gift Aid reclaim

What we need is somebody with an empty juggernaut going back to Scotland so we can load our bikes in it and get driven en masse to Scotland.:D
