It's coming to that time of the year again when people are planning events for 2013 and as we have a fair few going to Lanza early in the season I thought it would be a good idea to start a 2013 sportive thread (esp considering I did one last year too )

Lot of great rides out there, did flat out in the fens and the yorkshire ride and motion in mercia last year all of which were excellent. In particular the 112 option in flat out in the fens was a great precursor to the outlaw!

how important is it for a 1st time Outlaw just wanting to finish to do a 100m ride?

Yes it was a great ride - apart from a load of us getting lost because someone had messed about with the signs - even so I'll be doing it again this year.

04/11/2012 at 20:14

I'm planning The Longest Day - specially as its on my birfday. 

04/11/2012 at 20:16

The longest day is a good one Soup.  Will you be doing the long or the short?

I can't make it this year as it is same weekend as Brighton Mara but happy to do part or all of the shorter one as a training ride at some point

04/11/2012 at 20:20

I'll be doing the short with Mr Soup. A training recce sounds good, ta. 

Ibbos Cake Quest a great sportive in Jan or Feb but next years date not up yet.

I didn't Pixie - in fact I didn't go over 75 miles and only did that once.....

However most cyclists / triathletes / pirates would tear their hair out at that and call me an idiot

Because I am so slow doing very long rides just took up too much time especially as if they went on too long I'd miss the coached swim training session with my tri club

Im doing the 

29th Junes Cyclone Challenge 

The C ride is DAM HARD ... in a nice sort of way

Entered the Cat (62) and will be doing the Peaks (100 if they have it). The way I see it if I can get through that, the Outlaw will be a PoP
