I presume you did the 100 miler mikedoubleu?
Distance is similar, but a lot more climbing in the FW. Some of them are really steep (Honister and Hardknot top the bill). As long as you take your time, eat regularly (don't wait till the feed stop for eating (I ate something every 10 miles). It was my first time last year, we rode to finish, not for a time (probably why it took 9hrs 59mins - inc stops though ).
Road conditions?? Nothing's as a bad as the roads in Northumberland...........except the descents off Honister and Hardknot . Take it easy though, don't let your speed pick up and you'll be fine (worked for me, I'm not a confident descender). Lots of guys crashing last year, might have had something to do with full carbon clinchers and roads like rivers, one guy past me going down of Hardknot, he looked and sounded as if he wasn't entirely in control,, still, he made it round the switchbacks. Respect.
