Just going for the 50-miler. We're both on the wrong side of 60 so are going to make sure we enjoy this one more as a social event. I'm doing a Wiggle 74 mile Sportive in France the weekend before, but I'll be on my Lynskey Sportive for that one.What ride are you doing as that will indicate what you should look for tbh.
Then you could get away with a fairly cheaper option as you won't be doing too much climbing or as much of the tracks. I am going with my mate from Bristol and we have foolishly gone for the 100 mile... He has a nice 1976 ken Ryall and I have a 1981 ken bird time trial. Both 531 so fairly light but as I normally ride a modern carbon with ultegra the hills on old 12 speed will be a challenge. To be honest I don't care if we are last as we are going for the enjoyment not to race.
