Well, technically the road leg was brighton-to-london, but it still followed the BHF route!
Then I linked Clapham common to Roehampton uni, and rode back via the off-road route!
An epic 132 and a bit miles
It had been an idea for a ride for some time, and with route mapping software/gpx files etc, it was easy enough to send it all to my Garmin and follow the arrows!
The overall elapsed time was just over 12 hours - it COULD have been much faster if you so wish, but I was enjoying my day off, and had tonnes of coffee/photo stops (which I'll upload later).
The weather was cracking, and TBH it's only my knees that hurt a bit - my legs still felt fresh blasting along Hove seafront!
I'm not sure if it's been done before, but it would be great to have it as a 'known epic ride', like the SDW etc..
Here's the strava route:
I'm a bit tired now, but I quite enjoy writing up big rides (with pics) so will add to this thread/my blog over the next few days..
I can upload the .gpx routes for the whole thing if anyone's interested?
Anyway - I'm off to drink wine and rub more sudocreme 'in'...
