this is my Thorn Cyclosportif.
i knew i'd never race but wanted a ride that would take me on good day rides, Audax and the like and that i could even do a short tour (C2C?) but that would still be light enough to let me enjoy the core of my riding, i.e. approx 2 hours out on the lanes of the southdowns east of Winchester. I was loooking at the Giant SCR1 as that could take a rack and dreaming of a Van Nicolas or a Thorn, both about the same price. i saw on the Thorn Website that they had a shop soiled cyclosportif about £400 cheaper than list. Went over to Bridgewater 'just to have a look' and brought it on the spot. It was my 40th Birthday present to myself. The bike had never been ridden. it's been ridden alot now though
