- HONC. 50km, 100km or a mixture of routes ?
Thanks. My ambition of a sub 6 hour time is slightly less unrealistic now the course has been shortened a bit, so I'll plan on carrying 3 or so hours worth of water.Posted 9 years ago
Met Office are predicting 9-13 deg. C with winds of 10-14mph.
I did consider riding my rigid old kona round instead of the Orange. Having just given it a quick up and down the road test, I think I'll stick with the FS.
I'd be quicker on the Kona. But badly, badly broken I think. Instead I've stuck 40psi in the bald tyres just for the look of the thing.
I hope nobody is going to take this too seriously 😉Posted 9 years ago
I'm taking this deadly seriously.
I've been reseraching data from the Met office, the organisers, past participants and Google Earth and, after much deliberation, have decided to ride the bike I've been commuting on this week, with the tyres it's already got on it.
I've been carb loading all week too. Mmmm, chips. 🙂
If you see a big fat beardy bloke in Vegan Cyclists kit going for the "Most Niche Bike of the Day" award with a purple Gary Fisher 29er with white rims and a Rohloff hub, say hello.Posted 9 years ago
Kiwi stu – it did them for 4 hours, so not bad. I wish the weather was a bit warmer for them though…..
Militantgraham, after further pondering I've decided that you need punctuation in the "Go Vegan" slogan on your shorts. A coma or an exclamation mark should do it…..Posted 9 years ago
martyntr, I take it from your location you're the guy in the MTB Wales jersey who asked me about my Go Vegan shorts.Posted 9 years ago
The ambiguity is intentional. We employed an advertising agency at great expense to come up with a slogan that was both memorable and thought provoking.
