    looks..fun? :) I'd really like to do something like this. But would like to do it with a friend, all my mates are xbox junkies.

    Hmm, I hadn't seen this. I may be up for the 75km by September. :D

    was thinking of giving it a go but my mate wants to do the Brecon beast but I think the monster looks more fun :-) I'm struggling with 20 km right now so I need to do some training! Had 3 colds in the last 6 weeks!

    Likewise. I'm currently on 20 miles a day (2 X 10 mile commutes). Did a 30 mile road ride the other day and it nearly killed me. Hopefully by September, I'll be ready...

    OUt of the 4 of us, none are up for this yet LOL..

    However we've all entered so will be training hard.

    I rekon currently i MIGHT be able to complete it.... but only 'might'

    i wouldn't bother mailing her LOL

    Lets just say i sent more than a few mails without reply when trying to pay via card instead of cheque.

    Who wants to be my friend lads ?

    One of the boys has pulled the plug... i'm getting the feeling the others will be following soon :oops:

    I will do it on my own... but i'd rather not.

    I assume it's possible to swap the place my mate has... if not i doubt they're actually going to care if you pretend you're him :)

  • yeah just hoping i'm fit enough :lol:

    been doing a mixture of road and mtb all year, did 433 miles in July so building on that before the day really.

    Should be a nice long day out!

    hi all me my son and a mate have entered the 75km. I also had no problem with email response.
    Am really looking forward to this altho confidence is still lacking a little. we ride regularly 3 times a week and managed a 33 miler over the north downs ranmoore/leith.pitch last week and at a slow pace i did'nt feel to bad. Am totally aware how hard this event (even the 75km) is going to be and for myself this will for sure be the hardesdt challenge i have taken onboard to date.
    Went to afan and did W2 a couple of months ago and did 45km :) i think this put the 75k into perspective for all of us.
    Loving the challenge and the training :)

    We too are staying in the Bryn bettws cabins can anyone confirm if the start has been moved to here ?

    thanks
