  1. Technically @srw noted it, I just added some data.

    srw It's a bit more complicated than that...

    And at the same time there's a male JOG-LE-JOG record attempt going on; the two riders' paths crossed earlier today.

    A lovely evening for a ride. About 18:52, heading out of Gloucester:


    This was my consolation shot, redeemed by getting the support vehicle as well, which I hadn't noticed until I got home.

    I might as well show you the attempt at the dramatic action shot, for which "more practice needed" is probably the kindest thing anyone could say:


    I did get a nice smile.

    She's had to abandon, according to her FB page. No further details yet.

    That's a shame. :sad:

    Although it sounds crass, thank goodness it was sickness. I'd assumed the worst and that she'd been injured in a crash. Choosing to stop such a long way short is a very impressive piece of self-knowledge and self-control. I'm sure she'll be back.

    She was going very strong just north of Bristol last night, looked & sounded fresh as a daisy. Such a shame she's had to bail out but to go that far in that time was amazing.

  8. I thought 370 miles (or probably over 400 on the ground) - pretty amazing. But apparently not amazing for her. Her club record for the 24 hour TT is 441 miles!

    I hope it's nothing too serious. I guess you wouldn't have to be terribly sick to realise you aren't going to be able to cycle another 400 miles in the next 24 hours.

    I suppose I've become thoroughly accustomed to the mentality surrounding the year-long efforts, but this is a bit different, isn't it? Just a couple of hours where the level isn't right could signal the end, and it doesn't mean it will happen the next time. Still, it's a great shame, when everything was looking so promising.

    I'd taken hardly any interest at all in this until yesterday afternoon when I noticed the route passed very close to my home. I'd always assumed Chepstow - Hereford - Shrewsbury would be the optimal route. I'll be better prepared next time - the hill heading north out of Tewkesbury should be a good spot for a picture.

    GWS Jasmijn.

    She must have been ill to stop in Chorley.

    Hopefully once she recovers she gives it another go.

    I was wondering about another go.

    Prseumably, recovering from the ride she's done will take a bit longer than just an afternoon nap on the sofa.

    Then there's daylight and weather.

    I regard October as generally a good month for cycling, but I don't know much about distance/endurance riding and what those riders prefer.

    "couldn't stop puking my guts out" according to FB. And she's signed up to a 24-hour race at Brands Hatch next weekend.

    Hadn't she eaten some cake that a 'wellwisher' had given her shortly before along with water and Coke ?
