    OK @binstedman you and the other first timers will have an email asking what you thought of it. Glad you liked it. Not all FNRttC are as warm and not asll breakfasts are as nice, but everyone is just as friendly.

    Could you do some doubling back, make a loop during the halfway break, that sort of thing?

    Bollo Chaaaaaa!

    I feel your pain. I've only ever done a couple of FNRttCs, and only @StuAff 's excellent IoW ride recently, but I always struggle with the day after. I'm prone to insomnia so anything that plays silly buggers with my routine has to be considered.

    @mmmmartin Submitted the mandatory route earlier in the week but not heard anything back from Paul Stewart. Not surprised as he will have been busy finalising preps for is Ditchling Devil Audax today.

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

    Now that I've had a bit of time to process Friday night and Saturday morning, here are some thoughts.

    Compared with other rides to

    Thank you.

    Sorry - entirely my fault in not warning the back about a high speed incoming cyclist at some point during the ride, as Andrew had pre-warned me.

    In future I think that if I wanted to combine a FNRttC and a DIY Audax I'd volunteer to join the recce ride. The one recce ride I did with Adam to Felpham last year left HPC at 1am and the pace was a little brisker with fewer/zero re-grouping stops. Breakfast was great that day as well.

    How did the Edifice compare to previous visits? They're under new management/there's been a palace coup y'see.

    Very good. Tables and chairs; seating for everyone so no one needed to sit on the floor! Free refills of tea and coffee!

    Rather excellent. Sandwiches were bought in but perfectly good, decent cake and flapjack (portions of the latter a little small but they handed out what was left at the end, which made up for that!), reasonable prices & as TMN has noted free tea refills. Helpers were very friendly.
