I'd say Go for It !Not sure wether to do this. Having done the Tross Ton & Selkirk I am now hooked. However, this one does look very challenging and I struggle on hills................ How would people rate this compared to the last two I have done?
This is my only option in August. My Sept target is the PFS 100mile route.
Hi JimBhoy, I see you’ve signedup for the Ken Laidlaw Sportive. It’s the same day as my favourite CTC run the Island Hopscotch. I’ve been really lookin forward to the Hopscotch fora long time as it was really good last year. But I must admit I’m tempted to try the Ken Laidlaw Sportive, never done a sportive and when I looked at the map it looks like a really good run. How are you getting down to it have you made any plans for transport?
I've signed up for this. Hopefully a bit drier than last year!
Just fitted mudguards to my bike, so that should ensure the sun will be splitting the flagstones on Sunday!
Yes you would, don't let that be an excuse. You might be 0.5mph slower but you'll still do it, go on enjoy yourself.I'm having second thought's about going now, due to the issue with my new bike, don't know if i'd manage it on the much heavier Defy, hoping to hear from the dealer 2mrw.
How heavy is the Defy? And why can't you use the Bianchi? Or is the weather forecast the real reason you don't fancy it?I'm having second thought's about going now, due to the issue with my new bike, don't know if i'd manage it on the much heavier Defy, hoping to hear from the dealer 2mrw.
I've found the Met office always predicts awful weather 3 or 4 days in advance and its never right until the day before. For instance it predicted on Saturday that Tuesday would be like that. It turned out to be a damp start but a glorius afternoon. I'm sure by Sunday it'll be fine it had better be I'm wanting to cycle up to Aberfeldy. Good Luck Folks!
