I've done a few road sportives (well, 2 if I'm honest) and a few longish mountain bike rides, but nothing particularly fast. I entered the rescheduled WC this weekend on the assumption that there would be a few really fast guys disappearing into the distance followed by a big snake of punters making up the numbers and having a fun time pushing themselves and trying to go faster than usual, but not there to win it.
But reading the bumph seems to suggest I've screwed up and entered a race. It starts at around 11 and they encourage people to be at the prizegiving at 2pm if possible. Which appears to give around 3 or 3.5 hours to do the actual route unless I'm much mistaken.
will I die (of humiliation?)
