He's concentrating on his running at the moment, so not biking much but I might have to change that.

Experienced Audax rider required.

Are the routes way marked?  If not II've been sent a list of instructions here that would be challenging to me if I was walking, let alone on a bike.  No map.  I'll never make it past 10 miles.

could you map it out on sanoodi or gmap's and then print it out?

I tried that last night.  It was a bit tricky because a lot of the directions are 'follow signpost to x village', which doesn't really help when you're not on the ground!  It would be fine if you knew the area.  But I don't.

You'll send out a search party if I don't return, won't you?

just drive the route its the best way, I do that for any rides I plan just to check anyway and you get to see where all the important things are like sweetshops

It's on Sunday, and I haven't the time between now and then!  I have time on Monday but that's a bit late.

I entered cos it's organised and I kind of thought they'd send a map, but it's a massive set of directions with 'follow SP to Sarratt, 200yds, R at TJ, under bridge then right at canal' etc. 

I understand the directions, just can't see how I can possibly read them while cycling!

There will be groups of people so just tag yourself on to one of the ones that looks like they might be going at your pace, (the ones with tight, brightly coloured  lycra with names all over it are normally a good choice for someone of your talents)

Mind the people with wooly hats and enough bags draped round the bike to keep them going for a few days, they will probably be out there that long.

Holly .....  I write all the directions in a long list of place names and tape it to my Tri bars (well I dont use them for anything else!)
