Ibbo's Cake Quest  Event HQ at Walton-on-the-Hill, Surrey

Four different routes available - Fruit Cake 150k, Carrot Cake 110k, Jaffa Cake 60k, or Fairy Cake 20k(guided off road mtb).  Route descriptions include details of cake stops/cafes en route

Probably going to do the Jaffa myself. Anyone else interested?

Jaffa cake for me too.

Can you just do the smashing orangey bit in the middle? Must be the downhill bit?

I have my first Oly that day.

Forecast for Dorney: A wet start, getting drier throughout the day. Isolated pirate with scattered swearing.

Dorney is sweet, can be a bit windy though

Trogs - thinking of possibly trying the Jaffa, but will be a bit slow.
Managed 44Km last weekend at the Redhill YMCA sportive.
Do you know if you can enter on day or how close to the day? MiL is poorly so do not want to commit, may have to change plans at short notice.

Can we have less of that talk please ladies

CJ - I was involved with the Redhill sportive last weekend (although not there on the day),  have you any feedback on the course or organisation of the event etc?

Might keep half an eye on this... need to check with the boss if we are doing family things...

Either way will download the rides, they look like good ones to do.

 Not sure Steady, can't see anything on the website about closing dates or on the day entry.  Might be worth dropping the organisers an e-mail.

Thanks Trogs, I reckon a jump from 44 to 60 I can do, not like the massive leap of 40 to 100 I tried earlier in the year.

Jaffa I will drop you a PM with all comments, but basically it was great, especially having somewhere dry and warm for the cup of tea and cake at the finish as it rained a lot.

Easy step-up Steady, less than an hour more - unless there's any stonking great hills in the last 16k which, I'm fairly sure, there aren't.

I have looked at the route and think it is doable, a small part of it is the same as the Redhill one, so I know I can do those lumps.

Jaffa Cake for me too.

Looks like we've got a nice steady little group coming together

All this talk of cake is making me hungry.

We're booked for the new forest half this year but maybe one for next year.

might be up for this if I can be back before about 12.30pm. Who's still in? All Jaffas?
23/09/2011 at 11:04

I'm still in.  What time is everyone planning to set off?  I'm on my own for this one so would appreciate some company.
