    Yeah, I thought hauling us over the Mendips right at the end was a bit mean. Still, it'll be dark so we won't see it.
     
  4. At 2426m it's not as hilly as I thought. But it's the quality of those hills that counts, and with Dyrham, Pewsey Downs and the Mendips not to mention those lumpy bits around Clevedon I don't the name of (looks the same as the end of the Ball Buster?) these will be high quality hills. Tempted, it would be my second 300, but I'll see how I get on with my first before committing myself.

    Excellent!

    I've never climbed the Mendips that way - I usually go up Harptree, Burrington or Cheddar.

    One week to go .....

    Preparation = zero !

    Longest ride in last couple of months is only 60kms !

    So my thoughts for the day will be .....

    Sit on bike & pedal for 15 hours ;-)

    Who else is a confirmed rider ? @User482

    I think it's on their website. I did part of the route today, and it looks like a good one.

    Possibly my first 300 attempt next year. And if the toll is removed on the bridge I think I'll be up for some rides your side of the bridge. I could also park up in Aust.

    Quite. I don't think I have the legs at the moment, but Castle Cary provides a bailout train station at 200km, so I'll give it a go. Don't forget lights and layers!

    Did a 200 perm this week and after a warm afternoon arm warmers were soon followed by the windproof.Temp drops quickly when sun goes in.

    Get that train station out of your head User482 or it will lure you in....
