Slow riders control the speed of the group and fast riders get to mark most of the corners.

Surely everyone gets equals turns at marking.
Or are you allowed to overtake within the group?

I covered overtaking, but yes overtake as you wish, all it means is you get to be second man / marker sooner.
I don't think any of the group are slow riders.

Are you coming on the Wrinklies trip Tom?
I might pop along and meet you at your lunch stop at Long Melford. Do you know where you are stopping for lunch?
As I have grown older, I've learned that pleasing everybody is impossible, but pissing everyone off is a piece of cake.

Having survived my off-road training day, I'm now booked, despite the bloody Premier Inn booking system telling me, twice, that my session had expired and to start again. If it hadn't worked the third time, I wouldn't bloody stay there  >:(

PS Just need to see if I can find the bike now... ::)

Rae, I realise that you have probably sorted your route and stops out to suit all by now, however I was just taking a look at it (for my own interest) as in some places it passes quite close to home, and thought that from experience locally, Krazy Horse (just north of Bury St Edmunds) might be an interesting lunch stop for you all on the second day. It is very close to your present route and would position you for Bury St Edmunds and the A14 afterward.

When you leave the A11, there are some eight miles of wonderful wooded twisty roads leading to it and the venue itself has tarmac parking, good food and some really interesting bikes to see (they are dealers for Norton, MV, Indian and a few smaller makes).

Obviously just my suggestion and probably too late in the day, however I thought that it was worth mentioning.

Thank you for your suggestion, I will take a look and see what I can do. Will you be joining us?

Edit: I have taken a look and could make it work.

I have taken a longer look at the suggestion and it's worth remembering for the future, however it would mean shuffling the coffee stop and a fuel stop, so on this occasion I will leave the routes as they are. Thank you for the suggestion though.

You're very welcome Rae. I might well come out to join you at the lunch stop on the second day, providing that nothing prevents it!
