You might remember my post a while back, saying that i was anxious about doing a sportive on my own. Well I did it today and sat with the main bunch for the first 30 miles and with 6 guys on the way home, and boy did we fly for the first half, and were battered with a head wind on the way home. But it was good and well worth the effort.

3hrs 20 mins 60miles

DJ, was it the Larne - Balltycastle ride?

    Nice one, only found out about it about a week ago. TBH, dont think I would be quite up to that run just yet. How did you go?

    Am considering 2 x 50km runs in September, one in Downpatrick, one in Limavady. Take delivery of the Spesh Allez Elite this week so cant use the kak bike excuse any longer!

    yea got on well 3hrs 20mins, the last 30 miles were tough serious head wind on the way back, but I got there.

    going to do these ones also, nice wee training rides, I learnt one thing I need more base mises under my belt.

    You going to do them with anyone?

    Fella from work who has just picked up a new steed via the C2W scheme has said he will do them with me........ believe it when I see it!, so probably on my todd
