Well i say 50 miles it it was the Isle of Skye 48 mile Sportive

Really enjoyed it, The route was pretty hilly one of my pals said we climbed 600ft in the first 8 miles or so, and it was only dry for the first 10 or so miles but loved every minute of it.

My time was 2 Hours 56 Mins on the chip (Althought my garmin said 2 Hours 54 lol) so i was quite please with that time. looking forward to the next one. planning to add a few more miles onto the next one, Ullapool sportive was mentioned 136 mile :shock: :D

    Well done.. I've just entered my first one. The Tour of Exmoor. 80miles. How was your ride? were other riders friendly, was it relaxed, or did you feel like it was a race?

    Any advice you can give me, gratefully received... :D

  • well done , just completed my first 50 today but i was quite a bit slower but happy i done it
