It's a week on Saturday (is that 30th?) - anyway just got an email from Planet X which seems to be offering two free places - just in case anyone fancies it. There's a group of us from my club riding it to tag on to.
100 miles or 100km the choice is yours. Ride with Drags and the Ginger Avenger through the Peak District. Starts at 8am on the Saturday morning so contact Richprince@btinternet.com if you want to take part.

Note to self - check the bloody meters climbed before entering any sportif - no matter how cheap it is....
Didn't you learn that from the stupid, hideous, bastardness of this year's Cheshire Cat?!?
I like your comparisons, but they suffer from the law of averages. The first 60miles of the Cat were practically flat, as evidenced by our half-decent time up to that point. All the climbing was in the last 40 miles. So although you've put the Chiltern100 higher than the Cat, I would reverse them for difficulty. Yesterday's ride was hard, but achieveable. The Cat was just impossible.
Well done in Wales though. You didn't get another buff, did you?
