Another one...

Gav and I did this last year- a good long ride, none of those long Welsh hills, but still a fair bit of climbing..

If the climbing's not as hard as Wales I may be tempted to go for the 65K.

I'll have a think on it.

I think it was only 2 distances last year and we did the longer 75km - bit of a warm up for the Brecon Beast 100.. not warm enough as it turns out.

I think we did 4 hours riding time - it was a really hot day so we stopped for ice creams at the post office. sunny

bit of bridleways through fields, forests and littler connecting roads..

It's a lovely ride Guys.

Only a very few slight ups and a good one to have a go at if you're thinking of progressing from the 50k merida's up to the 75/100k mark.

The ice creams were well placed at around 45/50k

Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy

See you there at 9am then...

Martin Baker Sports & Social Club,
Mansfield,
Tilehouse lane
Denham Green
UB9 5DA

1 mile from M40 J1.

From what I remeber the drive in is also the cyclists' route out - if you are arriving after 9am watch out for people coming the other way!

I had to stretch on the bike if I had got off I would of properly cramped up.

Does anyone know how to stretch the back and front of the leg at the same time?
