  1. Heltor Chasca

    Heltor Chasca Out-Riding the Black Dog

    It was a great ride. I believe 270 entrants and 249 starters and 5836 full English breakfasts served by the sea.

    I introduced my friend to the world of longer rides so we took our time and enjoyed ourselves. No speed indeed on his Thorn Sterling, but he was comfy and had a good ride.

    Proper fat rain coming down Cheddar Gorge so I stayed cold for a while but the mist across the levels was beautiful. Minimum temperature of 5'c Max 17'c which over the night averaged out to 7'c. I don't think I was the only one under dressed.

    High Ham was feeling spikey but I really got into a groove getting up the Blackdown Hills.

    The tea stops and especially the hot food stop completely broke any Audax comforts. It was genuine 5 star stuff. The volunteers should take a huge clap.

    Glad I got the bus/trailer back home. Thanks Chris & Jase.

    Thank you Dave Atkinson for a great event. You did yourself proud.
