Gaz, I may do the Cotswold Spring Classic 100. (Also, are you on Twitter? What's your name? I'm trying to work out who people are...)

Also considering:

15 Jan - Evans, Chieveley - if weather's ok. Will enter on the day

1 April - The Joker (southern Sportives), Salisbury  100k - will be hilly but looks good

(9 april  - Cotswold spring classic 100 - feels early to be doing 100...)

15 April - Wiggle New Forest 83- have done this twice before and it's fab. Good confidence builder as not too hilly but is a good long ride

22 April - White Horse Challenge 90 miles, round Swindon -  killer hill at 83 miles that goes on and on and on....

29 April - Wiggle Up & Down - beware, this had Whitedown at 90 miles last year

nice and piratey...)

10 June - Sussex/Surrey Scramble Wiggle 100ish (was going to do Wales long course w/e but as Meldy pointed out, the bike is prob too hilly for Outlaw prep so close to the race).
