I rode my first 3 peaks last weekend. Below are my musings in no particular order...
It's reet hard.
There are some properly impressive individuals there.
My kit worked fine. Ancient Cannondale, Smart Sams, 80psi, Camelback.
I need to stop fannying about when training. I did the right sort of miles but not hard enough.
I need to do some road work so that I can stay with a group next time.
You don't need to eat much.
If you can ride or run downhill at a decent rate you can gain a lot of places but not a lot of time.
Unless something has gone wrong it seems that the position you start Simon Fell in is pretty much the position you top out in.
Running up hills is only a reality for the top guys.
A decent warm up helped me.
Busting yourself to stay in a group on the road is probably worthwhile.
