I'm finding it hard to get sufficient climbing in as training for the Manx 100.
I'm based in South Chilterns - hard to get more than 1500m without doing hill repeats as the hills are short and sharp. 110miles of ridgeway gives the distance but is a quarter of the elevation
SDW - the train/travel admin is a killer. Either a half day on Friday and B&B or a late start on the Saturday after most of the wee hours on the train followed by a night time drive.
Surrey Hills - no knowledge and no garmin maps. Gee's route would be great but I'd likely spend most of my time lost - anyone with knowledge planning a 12hr attempt soon?
I'm starting to think that the easiest thing is a 50mile out and back on the SDW. I can do an early start and not shell out for trains/b&bs. Winchester is closer for me but the big hills are Eastbourne?
Any other suggestions gratefuly received.
