On the day booking

Post by Simon Edwards on Fri Jul 25, 2014 9:17 am

Ok folks, just to let you know if you are planning on booking in on the day the cost is £23
You will get a map, but the route is well signposted, with marshals along the route.

See you all on Sunday

I hope a good time was had by all, i wanted to be there at the end to see you all come in, but i had to get home (better to die in the chair than in a field 20 miles from home)

What a day

Post by Simon Edwards on Tue Jul 29, 2014 4:34 am

Wow what a day. Great to see so many of us out yesterday, and all I can say is next year I'll try and be a bit quicker. Thanks all for waiting for me, and Rob Dix and Rob Elliot for pacing me the last 20 miles and for being my eyes on the road. It. was the furthest id cycled this year and boy did I know it at 35 miles when cramp hit big time. Only fell of the once, but had a soft landing in the grass verge, and found out why my clipless pedal stop working, due to loosing a cleat bolt.
Poor Derek decided to see if he could beat the record for the most punctures in a back wheel, whilst Rorie and Sam played conker baseball. Rob was salivating for a dirty burger from mile 40, and Steve cycled an extra 20 miles I think keep coming back and encouraging me. It was smiles all round though, and a great fun day.
