I’ve been sadistically looking forward to this. Recently I’ve found great pleasure in testing my body to its limits, then just tipping it over the edge, ultimately extending the limit. 200km will be the furthest I’ve ever ridden in one go, and the fact it’s off-road makes it all the more challenging. I’ve no worries...

    Well done on finishing the 200km , I stopped after 130 km. If you enter next year it will be in the spring, before the midges or any other bugs take to the air.

    Welcome to 200km in a day round a lumpy circuit. That’s the feeling many have who do something like DR for the first time. Good look with the next one, when you can get your head around it all, and you will 😉

    all of what you experienced is all part of the fun! Soon, you will learn the techniques needed for efficiently decorating one’s top tube with puke, finishing a ride fuelled only on a bottle of cola and going partially-blind in one eye. Oh and there’s the peeling of arse skin in the shower 3 days later.
    welcome to the gang!
