Have entered the Epic but didn’t quite realise how far it was, so might go for a girlie wimp-out and ride the standard route instead… (which is still a flipping long way in my book!)
I’m down for the Epic too.. and it’s going to be tough! Not been out on the roadie for a few weeks so I’m counting on last week’s altitude training in the Alps to pull me through (although not sure if it counts if it’s mostly down-hill!) 😆
Can’t help thinking I’ve shot myself in the foot rather by praying for good weather… will be making the most of the 7:15am start interval to get some miles (and Coombe Gibbet / Vernham Dean hills) in before it warms up too much…Posted 4 years ago
Terrific day. My first go at the “new” Swinley trails and I think they’re really impressive. Challenging for me through the twisty-turny stuff on the “Labrynth”…
Cherry on the cake was the helmet-less alien biker flying down the most extreme bit of red-trail downhill. He seemed to be turning corners in the air. HOW did he do that?

Big thanks to dashed for organising and guidance. 😀Posted 4 years ago
Ahh… Brave man! Standard route for me – *only* 80 miles which we did in just under 5 and a half hours. It was absolutely roasting!! There’s no way I could have done an additional 40 miles or so on top of what I did!!!
Slogging up some of those hills in blazing sunshine and what must have been 30 degrees was an interesting experience…!Posted 4 years agogary wrote:
I presume the riders coming through Stockbridge were doing the Magnificat?
Yup, that was us… about 35 miles in.Sarah wrote:

Bloody good effort! I was feeling good up to the split (including 50km/50 mile PBs) but then just blew up in the heat from 60 miles on..Posted 4 years ago
