Next Thursday I'll be setting out on my 1st 100 miler. York to Manchester (with a little extra loop to make up the distance) ending with my industry's Black Tie summer ball in the evening.
I'll be riding a steel Raleigh 12 speed racer (this is the correct terminology since the bike's approximately 25 years old) that I've not seen yet (bought through Ebay, collecting it tomorrow).
Furthest I've ridden in a day so far is 70 miles (took 6 hours on road on my hardtail with semi slicks pumped up really really hard).
Of the group of 4 of us doing this ride (for charidee don'tcha know) 2 of us are regular cyclists (Me being one of them).
What could possible go wrong (apart from my dancing being slightly curtailed)?
