- SSUK 2013
Sam there is a race, it is a race, we will be racing… But don’t tell anyone with a clip board.
You see they are running (they being wiggle) an offload sportive on public rights of way. You are not allowed to race on briddlepaths ( horse and feet, yes, bikes, no). Wiggle give you a good medal for finishing within a certain time, folk “race” for the medals. We will award a medal to anyone who finishes within a certain time, that time will be decided once someone has finished. Loop hole. Reliability trial… Sportive, WhateverPosted 5 years ago

Course… Lightly marked on the ground, with a photocopy map with the route. A bit of map reading may be required.
I think it will be two laps, at around 12 miles each, allowing all the one lap chaps to be at the pub finish line in time for the winners.
SSUK 2013…. Single speed UK championships.
Grabbing the bull by its great big beefy balls and running with it… Want to get things nailed down. So without the ok from British cycling, the UCI (aren’t they a cinema?) and the stw forum mafia…. Here is SSUK 2013.
Previously I have offered to run SSUK, on a somewhat basic basis, Avoiding all the costs, hassles, and troubles… near the seaside and a really great pub. Striped back to campsite, pub instead of marquee, pub gig instead of roller racing, fish and chips instead of powerbars, off road sportive format rather than official race, no entry fees, no insurance, no medics, no marshalls. no gears, no fuss. (No moaning from northerners that the “Race” is nearer France than glorious Macclesfield )
Unless someone tells me to stop. It’s the last weekend of May 2013

Sp… Nice idea but I am saddle tramping in France on that weekend now… Ferry booked, cork screw packed.
It’s looking like a 8 mile ride to the start bankers arms beer garden, studland)Posted 5 years ago
12 more miles brings you to the end of the first lap. Via a few hills, a castle and a cake shop.
Tough two lap chaps will have a further 20 miles.
Possibly 6000 feet of climbing!
I might strava it and see what the stats are.
