who is going?
you beat me to it
Another good tip is to follow the route correctly, as a couple of the above are good at getting lost.
See you then
Ask Ian he has 100s of them for sale, going cheap
And me, if you are registering on the morning you have to do this between 6 & 7 and don’t forget photo id
Mike you need to make the post public no one can see it
i see on strava Jon Doig made it to 145 miles before night came and he abandoned
i sure he will post shortly
Great day, some steep climbs, marshals on every junction, big yellow signs with arrows everywhere.
It was all going well until the first feed station on top of the hill 35 miles in, there was a timing mat, as you can imagine the race was on between Mike to get over the timing mat before our chairmen, once over the timing mat turning left in to the feed station, now this is when it all goes wrong, our chairman is not stopping at the feed station who is on the inside and Mike who is on the outside is turning left into the feed station, by the time i got there, Mike bike had a broken spoke in his rear wheel and Andrew leg was covered in blood, mechanic at the feed station removed the broken spoke and now the back brakes are not working on Mikes bike as the wheel is buckled, also Andrew derailer is bent so that needed some attention adding to this it is pouring with rain a good 20 minutes lost here.
So off we set and Mike back wheel is holding up, 5 miles on the Chairman was gone, this left Mike, Colin and myself for the rest of the ride. Weather improved, Great day, Will do this one again
