Nah, survived! Dodgy mobile phone connection - but can't remember what else I was going to say.

I got back to Reading about 1215 so remained dry

Cheggars - if you waved at a solitary cyclinst in pirate kit, then that was me having been dropped again on a climb. If I was with some others, then it was a rare moment of me keeping up with the fast group.

Road up to Pishill is horrible, but the descent in to Watlington makes it worth it. Until the climb back up to Christmas Common (hill climb race was on today too). Fast blat down to Wallingford then undulating to Goring. Dropped on Goring Hill, then fast back to Caversham. ~700m climb in 70km

You were way after me Ironcat. You're right about the Pishill road - hopefully the new route for next year won't include it.

If I'd seen someone in Pirate gear (I didn't) - and bearing in mind I'm putting all this waffle on here - it'd have made my ride!

Just been reminded that we have another week to benefit from the Pirate cheapo sign up deal which they gave us until the 24th October I think.

I am a bit sorry about Pishill being taken out as the ride down it on a closed road thsi year was awesome

Rafi - as above from Frags, not yet but they major on the fact that it is and will continue to be closed roads (and probably flatter)

Looking forward to the details of the revised course - a little off the current 1800m climbing would be nice...

Yeah, can't it be made pancake flat?

Hi All,

I have just spoken to the lovely people at Challange Henley and they are willing to offer all of us, whether we did it last year or not, the early bird discount for the Full distance. So normally it would cost £340, going up to £375 nearer the day, but we can have it for £294. To get this deal we need to enter as team "PSOF" and use the discount code "PREENT13".

Just to add, this discount is only available until October 24th and is only available for the full not the half. I am told that the cycle will be all closed roads again and that there will be a new course (faster) whcih will be announced in a week or two's time.

Finally if we want a Pirate Central feed station for supportes we can have that as well. 

Hope this helps and see you there!         

 

Two days left to use the code !

Illicit listage. Good luck!

I see in the local news that the NT are up in arms about the proposed bike route.

Hopefully the bike route is on road ? Why would that annoy the NT ?

Any idea where it's supposed to be cat ?
22/10/2012 at 17:58

Cougie, if it's on 'closed roads' could be limited access to one of their properties for the day thus reducing any 'entrance' fee they may want.  Just a thought.

I've just read about it potentially going past Greys Court here but all hype reading between the lines.
