Heaven of the South 2014

Postby IainW » 14 May 2014, 15:37

This Saturday. Anyone else going apart from Chris?

I blogged a late entry emailing the organisers even though it's "sold out". Looking on their Facebook page there might be other places going if anyone's keen...

Yes. I think there are a few BMBC going.

I am going up with a mate, but will see you there. I am probably just going to do the 50km, then go home in the afternoon.

I just put the summer tyres and gears on, if you can keep up with me on the first 12km you should definitely do the full 75 ;-)

More seriously, the great thing about these kind of events is you can push yourself a bit and have the fun of lots of people to talk to, no stress of navigating and the feed stations are nice to take a little load off you. If you think you'll struggle to do it, why not try it anyway? Best chance you'll get for a crack at a longer distance, and once you convince yourself you can do it then it opens up all sorts of other rides, mendips etc. from bristol.

Also if you're flagging, you go through Nailsworth half way round the long one, could stop for an ice cream/beer/fish n chips (delete as appropriate).
