    Pretty much Rob, the first big climb with other riders, photo with Adam on the crest. I then caught upto Dean and Tommy just before first food stop. I then never actually rode with anyone else. I saw several people, usually overtaking me, pesky Bianchi youths:smile:. I felt good at mile 80, buy by mile 100 I was wishing for finish to be around the next bend. The hardest part was about 10 miles over the moortops on the busy A route. Headwind and seemingly endless road. I would recommend the 120/130 if you're in good shape at mile 80

    I'm interested in the DD this year, not bothered about which route as happy to ride with others in a group, looking for a good day in the saddle with chat and laughs along the way, so will do the ride the majority decide on.

    Just need to book the ride and a place to stay

    When i got to the top of the devil's elbow where adam was waiting i was ready to jack it in, i think i even said i cant go on, but Tommy and adam talked me into finishing and found my second wind to finish couldn't bear the thought of Tommy doing the rest solo.
    You doing it solo was steel balls :biggrin: kudos for doing it.

    Surely 95 miles is enough for anyone?

    Although I have to say, if it were me I'd be forced to round it up to 100 miles by my CDO (like OCD but the letters are in the right order)! :laugh:

    95 is plenty! Trouble is you then miss out one of the devil climbs and that’s a bit of a pity.

    Dean don’t sell yourself short mate. We all get that little voice in our head sometimes saying ‘enough’. But you told that little voice to STFU!! And that’s all that counts :training:.

    Plus if I’d of carried on solo I’d of never found my way out of there and you know it! :laugh:

    As nice as that photo is it still doesn’t do that view justice. Stunning. What a day Rob!
