  • i havent done it before, but i am doing it this year so ill see you there :D

    and ive heard its pretty hard work :) should be abit entertaining at the very least
  • I've not done it (I don't have the commitment for that) but my friends have done, the hardest part is the Sussex Beacon. Since I ride around the beacon area I'll agree that after 50 miles the last thing you want to do is go up a almost never ending hill at the last bit of the ride. Just get some hill practice in.

    Good luck guys.
    Why oh why do onions make you cry?

    me and a mate did the first one in 2008,

    it's pretty easy to be fair, nothing like a Merida Marathon, there are a few hills in Surrey and then the final slog up Truleigh, the Down Link path is a bit boring,

    my mate did not training for it, which slowed us a bit, took us 9 hrs, other people were completing is in 4-5hrs,
