All, Anyone riding the Forest of Dean Spring Classic this weekend? It's my first Sportive, one that I'm having to do alone after my riding partner pulled out. Interested to see what any past riders opinions were......the distance doesn't seem too bad, but I have to admit the climbing is a concern (nearly 8000ft over 85 miles). How do they derive the categories (gold/silver/bronze)? Do they take the fastest rider as a benchmark and then work them out or are there set times?
