Pearson Sportive

Looks to be good, one of the old L2B routes on 20th May from Sutton in Surrey, down to the coast taking in Ditchling beacon before heading back up to Surrey
150k
Could be a goer!

i thought it was quite near you Ditchy

Some work colleagues doing it as well so two worlds may well colide for a day

Might look to do one of the routes later in the year as a long ride though, could download it onto the magic widget.....

Can't give this one a miss, right where I live

Dartmoor classic (http://www.dartmoorclassic.co.uk/)

Gonna be hilly though.

Pearson Sportive looks good,   regular cycling routes for me either heading south to the coast or north to work! 
It also goes past the end of my road as well so call in advance if you're in need of a sneaky beer or cake at about 70 miles
18/01/2012 at 16:08
Jaffa - you should be ON the ride, not serving up tea and cake.
18/01/2012 at 22:25
It goes within about 100m of my house too, if anyone needs tea and cakes after 2 miles

Infact it goes RIGHT past Cheerful Daves house, and next to Trog's too!

Those first 2 miles will be a cake-fest!

Read some very good reports about Le Terrier on Sunday 3rd June.    Anyone fancy it - it's up round Lancaster way - Forest of Bowland/Ribble Valley area.    Meant to be very quiet roads and Fred Whitton level of toughness.    There's a  special104 mile route for Olympic year (!) and shorter options.

So who IS in for the Pearson 150?

AH

Did the Evans Chieveley Sportive yesterday.  Fabulous route.  Anything round Newbury must be fab.  <searching for Magnifcat which I think is Wiggle these days>

Magnificat, Newbury, Berks: Sunday 3rd June. Jubilee weekend.  81 miler or 127 miler. 127 miler has 2800m of climbing... sod that. (Outlaw's not THAT hilly)
