    The HPC is the best sportive I've ever done. Great route, really phenomenal support team and a very worthy cause. If I wasn't so unfit I'd be all over it.

    I'm looking at the 50 and hoping it's not too strenuous

    With favourable weather the run into Dunkeld by the river is marvellous.

    Can't comment on anything after that as I've only done the 100, I thought that the routes came back together at Blairgowrie but apparently not. At least you won't have the sting in the tail that is Collace Hill.

    When I told my former partner about the WTOS and suggested she watch the start of stage 2 she asked "Is @Pat "5mph" racing in it?" :laugh:
    Can't imagine the peloton would be too happy about being told "no stopping, no shopping!" in the feed zones...

    Wotta lotta cyclists on the A9 today between Tain and Thurso, and fine weather for it. There was no special event on, just folk touring solo, in pairs and trios.
    Cyclists still outnumbered by campervans:rolleyes:.

    Well, that went quickly.

    Would have been nice to see a bit more.

    Really enjoyed the 50 when I did it a few years back now :smile:
     
  13. I've signed up for the RS50. Missed it the last 3 years. Hope the cake stops are as good as I remember

    The way you wrote it sounds like I said that to someone ... for the record, it's me that was ordered (in no uncertain terms!) "no stopping, no shopping" by our intrepid leader, sadly now retired from leading. :biggrin:
    Ah, I was ordered too: "No stopping for pictures!!!!!" :whistle:
    Great times! :laugh:
