    I consider you either mad or a star, I will go for the latter. Done 100 miles off road and 100 on road, but never have or will now do nearly double that. Not old age or lack of enthusiasm far from it, just bad knee arthritis limits the mileag nowadays.

    Blimey, Skegness and back, no tell me not.

    I'm in awe of your PB :bravo: That's the kind of mileage I'd like to achieve in a day but I'm a fair way off of achieving it yet. Well done Steve :smile:

    Well done,I did 158 miles on the fixed gear earlier this year
    took me a similar sort of time ( had a couple of pub stops en route)

    felt like i was the last cyclist in england still out when I was nearly home,
    (it was nearly 11:30 at night) I found the last 30 miles more mentally demanding
    than any real physical pain though, I have no desires to try and beat this mileage
    any time soon though
