I've booked Wadebridge and Torquay Travelodges too - am planning to do it by public transport so will need taxi to Torquay, but seems doable.

Rod's point is nevertheless a good one - that there's a lot to be said for spending Friday night in Wadebridge and hence avoiding the early start to get the bus on Saturday morning. I realise that the journey from Teignmouth to Wadebridge can be done by public transport (involving changing at Newton Abbott and Bodmin Parkway), but I wonder if there would be sufficient takers for a coach or minibus from Teignmouth to Wadebridge at about 6 p.m. on Friday evening (arranged either by the organisers or privately by a group of walkers). I for one could be interested - and it would avoid the need in Rod's plan to return to Wadebridge to pick up a car after the event.

The Camel-Teign Ivor's Dream 100 organising committee are arranging transport for any end baggage to be brought back directly from Wadebridge to Teignmouth. If you didn't let us know on your entry form and now need this service please contact us.

Likewise we have seven 50 - seater coaches on hire to leave Teignmouth from 0600 - 0630 to take all those booked to Wadebridge. As it's the Bank Holiday weekend there wont be any later departures for the 1130 and 1330 starts. If you have booked on the coach and are now making alternative arrangements please let us know so we can adjust our coach bookings.

Anyone found any suitable hotels in Teignmouth where it might be acceptable to arrive very late on Sunday (i.e. early on Monday morning, such as 2 a.m.)? - as far as I can see virtually all the accommodation in Teignmouth is small hotels and guesthouses where they like you to arrive at a civilised time; I haven't yet found anywhere with a reception desk open 24 hours, which would be the ideal.

Re B&B's in Wadebridge. I found that they wanted a minimum of two nights as it's a BH weekend. I managed to get a room in the Travel Lodge too. Based on what I've heard, most of the LDWA will be in the Travel Lodge!!!
Thanks for that advice Deidre. I'll take a peek at that for myself coming from South Wales with a couple of changes.

I have met only two other persons taking the 'red eye'/coach trip. Seems most folks are exercising their brains in trying to avoid it. Can anyone else taking the coach 'SHOUT' [just to know there are more than three of us, would be comforting!!!]

Thankyou Philip, I also use East Coast but just lately have used TaketheTrain.co. I have set my ticket alert with The Trainline, although I will not be purchasing with them. Most companys release cheap tickets 12 weeks before, although some are 10 or 11 weeks.

If it's of help for any walker, The baggage team will at the finish from around 17-00 on the Friday. If anybody want to leave any finish bags with them, then that's OK by me. Just don't tell the wife. Any / all bags MUST have your walk number on.


Plus any all finish bags that are at the start will be waiting for them when you finish.

Is anyone interested in in combining forces with me? I'm trying to plan out my logistics for which I need to team up with others. To avoid the early start of using the bus from Teignmouth I would like to meet other walkers/runners in one or more cars at Teignmouth on friday 24th May. We then leave our end of walk overnight gear in one car/s (I'm happy to leave mine) and hide the electronic key fob (mine is seperate to the key) under the car. All of us then drive in the other car/s to Wadebridge to our chosen b&b's/hotel/campsite. Saturday morning we drive to the start and leave our surplus luggage (wash gear, excess clothing etc) in that car/s. After finishing our individual walks/runs we will all have access to our bedding etc from the car/s already there. Monday morning we drive to Wadebridge to collect the other car/s then go our own way. Obviously there is a lot of factors to take into consideration, one of them being completion times. I hope to finish in 30 - 35hrs (but who knows on the day???) so therefore a much faster person may not want to wait for me and I'd prefer not to have to wait for someone/s who expect to finish in 48hrs. My email address rod.spindler@hotmail.co.uk. I have also posted this on ldwa facebook. Thanks Rod
