For those based in the SE, the Dunwich Dynamo will take place (I think) on the evening of 30/6 - 1/7.  Not exactly a sportive, just a fairly long bike ride from London to the Suffolk coast overnight.

No real website to stick up as I'm not sure how much Southwark Cyclists are going to get involved nowadays.

Good fun though.

I have just entered the 80 mile Jodrell Bank this weekend.

My first ever Sportive and I have never done more than 60 miles before.

Any advice welcome as suddenly very scared.

07/03/2012 at 12:59

Hey Muffin I'm in the same boat.

The free pie and pee's will make it all worth while.

07/03/2012 at 13:03
dont forget your gloves as I did on sunday and still paying for it now!

Will try not to. Planning on showing off my pirate arm warmers as well.

looking at the profile, most of the climbing is in the last 20-30 miles so pace accordingly I guess. Thought the 50 miles last year was lumpy enough but I wasn't really race fit at that point.

I don't have any pirate cycling kit but I'll keep an eye out for arm warmers then.

19/03/2012 at 18:47
I'm in for the 'longest day' on the 15th April. Hopefully good preparation for the outlaw. Anyone done it before?
19/03/2012 at 19:56
I did the short one last year and a fellow pirate did the long one
