I'm toying with the idea of having a crack at a solo 24 hour event next year. Happy to hear others experiences, pros, cons etc. and which events may best suit me.
I've taken up this sport/activity much too late in life to excel at shorter (or longer) races, but being more of an endurance animal and one that occasionaly likes a big challenge maybe this would be worth a go.
I did the Gisburn 12 hour and Keilder 100 last year and managed them ok and I seem to be getting used to being on the bike more now, though technically theres plenty of room for improvement.
So, what events are the best/most suitable, how soon do I need to enter, and what advice (other than lots of time on bike) can you give for preparation?
PS I think just by posting this I'm more or less committing myself to it.
