    Hi,

    Newish here and just wanted to open a topic about the 'Action Medical Research 5 Castles Challenge' that I completed yesterday.
    Firstly a great big thanks to everyone involved. The organisation and general day was tops!!! 100 miles (my first) of great scenery and some HILLS!!! As this was my first big road trip I have no idea how this rates as 'HARD' 'NORMAL' or 'EASY. Did anybody else from these pages do this ride?
    Opinions would be much appreciated.

    I completed the ride in 6 hours 23 mins actual road riding time. One stop at lunch for 20mins and two small snack stops of about 2mins. I was pleased with this as it was completed on a Claud Butler Critirium 531 steel.

    I am 41 next week and do about 60 miles a week in the summer but will confess to doing a spinning class 4 times a week.

    Cheers
