its the same price for the long as for the middle.........I'm so tight that I entered the long as better value for money

Hubby isn't pleased as he has only been twice on his bike this year and I don't think he rode more than twice last year........

he managed a 45 miler and a 50 miler so i have entered him for the long one as well.......he is already worried about his arse hurting

Was looking at it, but then, I'm working a 10-11 hour night shift, so would have a late set off, around 8:30 ish. Don't think I could manage the epic distance with a 4 o'clock cut off, 7 1/2 hours is tight with over 9000 ft of climbing, well, it is for me.

may do the standard though, just need my knees to give the go ahead after yesterday.

Yep. I'm in for the 100 miler. Can't be as hard as yesterday's ToP, unless the weather changes. Drive the bit from Longtown to Abergavenny, if weather is good will be a hard but fantastic section. Drag from Monmouth through Trellick not much fun, buy hey ho!

Cut offs, didn't realise there were sny

Don't know if it's cut offs as such, but website says they want everyone off course by 4 pm, so there will be riders going out and clearing the course with that time as a target. I suppose there would be some leeway.

Looks good I think I might be tempted with this see how the legs are tomorrow but thinking it would be good training.
