Beautiful morning here in Nottingham, and clearly the sights were just as beautiful earlier this morning as our riders got up at unGodly hours to be ready for a a 4.00am start!

Final preparations were made last night, with riders carefully leaving their helmets under the table rather than taking it with them for the ride :D

It's either very early or one of our riders has just realised the enormity of 1000+ miles in one day and a 4.00am start :D

Pitstop 1 all set up and ready for the riders. All these folks volunteer their time and without them the LDC doesn't happen. Awesome job all of you :icon_salut:

Rich Sutton is the first rider in at Pitstop 1, closely followed by Ian Richardson. Weather looks great and they're making good time :)

Good work the pit stop guys.   Bunch of real gents.

Weather looks bloody lovely.  It'll be a joy to ride for the first 12 hours....

All our riders have now made it through pitstop 1, great work by the crew there. Weather is great! If you're following a particular rider there should be a photo of everyone over on the facebook page, but Im not going to stick all 40+ on here so here's a quick sample.

The folks at Pitstop 4 are sending me pics of the food they've prepared for the riders. Awesome job by Pat and Iain.

You guys talk amongst yourselves for a bit, I'm just nipping up to Scotland for a bit of "quality control" :D

Unfortunately we've had our first confirmed retirement. Peter Robinson had electrical gremlins on the start line, traced to a failed ignition module which he couldn't get a replacement for. That's lousy luck and I'm sure he must be gutted. Commiserations and I hope you can join the ride again next year.

The first riders have rolled through Pitstop 2. Nige Rea's bike won't rev over 7K or take more than 1/4 throttle. It's going to be a loooong day for him.

Good to see Luke up the front after the Brackenburg of Doom last year. if Nige is going that fast on a fucked bike, then bloody hell.

Yep, more power to Luke, great to see him going well. Nige isn't known for hanging around, is he? :D

Good to see all the riders in & out of pitstop 1. Quite the flurry sometimes- there's a few hunting in packs. Honourable mention to our Andy Crackett for fast hustling and a momentary erk for one rider on a green Kwak 500 who has chenshing fukudieyung tyres.😱
