    ColinJ A big clot!

    I think the subterranean second half of the run into Blackpool looks a bit iffy! :laugh: (50 metres below sea level!)

    As for the rides that were a few hundred metres short of 50 km - I reckon you could have done the extra if you'd wanted to, so count the rides if you like! :okay:

    My garmin does that below sea level thing when i pause it.
    Do i log each ride as a separate ride for a point each?
