I must admit, its not really my thing. But I am aware many people like them.
I was under the impression that it would be an individual effort ride. As soon as it started the other 7 riders got into a peleton and off they went. It was more like a club ride.
I didnt mind. I inteded to ride alone. Tri bars.. You cannot use tri bars said the organiser. I checked this beforehand. You cannot use tri bars in PBP but everything else seems a grey area. Apart from that, I did not intend to ride in a group. I rode with tri bars.
First control was a church in the middle of nowhere and my instruction was to find someone to sign the card. There was nobody so I took a photo. Similar scene at the second checkpoint. Is this allowed?
Too many big roads to ride on in such a beautiful part of Denmark.
I enjoyed the ride and maybe its because I am not used to the system and it was all new to me, that I really didnt take to it. Maybe its because I like to plan my own routes on quieter roads.
I got in at 9 hours 45 minutes which is the goal I was aiming at.
A beautiful day but windy though.
