- Anyone else having a crack at the South Downs Way this weekend?
Ybot, we’ll look out for you, we’re setting off a similar time from the Holiday Inn at Winchester. There’ll be six of us, no distinguishing marks other than lobster tan-lines by mid afternoon 😀

Anyone else having a crack at the South Downs Way this weekend?
We’re heading out from Winchester early tomorrow, hoping to make it to Eastbourne by late afternoon but Brighton might be more realistic looking at the expected temperatures across Sussex and Hampshire.Posted 4 years agoc_klein87Member
If your name is an indication of your abilities then fair play to you if you can do the lot in 8 hours 8)
Best I’ve ever managed one way is 10:47 elapsed Ebo – Winch (at night).
Conditions are good but the forecast (for Shoreham)indicates an easterly wind, which is not really what you want.

I’ve done it a couple of times before with my best time being very close to your 10hr47. We’ll be starting a bit earlier than 8am to avoid some of the heat but I can’t see us being sub-10hrs in those temperatures with a head-wind. We’re also quite a mixed-ability group in terms of fitness and hope to stick together.
All good fun and a great day out on the bike, can’t wait 8)Posted 4 years ago
That time was the out lap of my 2nd failed SDD attempt. All the times I’ve done the W – E route have been with others and we’ve generally been out on the trail 12+ hours.
Might have a solo go on the back of the BHF ride in a couple of weeks time.
Last time I hooked onto a part of that was when DaisyDuke did his nightmare SDD ride. When I caught him at 60 miles he’d had seven punctures! 😯
Serious kudos to him for persevering with that 8)Posted 4 years ago
