I think this would be a quick time.

I would guess that 21:30 would be the first ones and about 00:00 for the slow ones.

I think it would be simliar to this year sun rise to sun set

Just to make all aware I've emailed the Ace with a rough window of between 11am and 1pm for riders arriving for Lunch, tea and p break! I gave them a figure of between 60 to 100 riders but will confirm nearer the time. Though it would be a courtesy, and they may be able to accommodate us easier if they know we're comming!

Just heard back from Linda at the Ace. They are looking forward to welcoming us on the 18th - and it's now in their diary. They have a rough guide for timings as between 11am and 1pm for the pitstop. They also pass on their congratulations for our incredible successes to date :thumbright: :D

Are we going to have a big guided ride from the Ace to Tower Bridge? :thumbup:
dont know, no-one has said anything, but if we do ofcourse it will add time to the Ace - Folkstone section

Presumably it's a voluntary thing to stop at the Ace. Riders may just prefer to get on with it especially if they're running behind their schedule.
its up to the riders when and where they stop. some might just want to go straight for the tunnel.... whatever i guess, the idea is just to get to Paris, all said and done
