    did the test valley tour, enjoyed it, great weather but was slightly less enjoyable as i had 2 punctures in my tubeless might i just add, both from sharp stones, and one in the sidewall, luckily i managed to fix the 2nd one at the final waterstop.

    fair amount of roads, fair amount of slippy mud offroad and it was either up or down 🙂 good stuff though.

    I did it too.

    Being a local I was a disappointed with the route. Far too much tarmac and bad route markers in places. It could have been a much better route.

    On the plus side, the back section of collingbourne was in a lot better condition than I expected it to be.

    I really enjoyed it too. Did the 45k in 25 mins less than I wanted to, so pleased with that 🙂 I liked the route, and the woods were great fun.

    awww i was unfortunatly struck down with Man Flu so I couldnt go, i enjoyed the last two test valley tours though.

    Please could somebody send me the GPX file ?

    Yeah, it was a bit muddy

    I too took part and agree with MM from a local’s point of there was too much road, particualry as I did the 32k route. But on a positive note, it was nice that the shorter route included the full amount of single track in the woods, when in previous years the shorter route only got a taster.

    If the organisers what to know a better route in and out of Andover advoiding the roads please contact me.
