    I'm guessing Cardiff to Tenby "100 miles, on a bike, in a day". Not a race, not a sportive, just a ride to Tenby

    Good luck.

    Yeah, just Cardiff to Tenby in a day! It's a personal challenge though and looking to build on that! Have to start somewhere! ;)

    It seems halfway through a tin of halved pears, I somehow missed half of your post... :lol:

    Good luck with it all! :)

  • Tinned pears..... Did you have evaporated milk with them?

    Oh, best of luck with the ride as well :D
  • I'm in a similar position! Been coerced to take part too, the only difference is I've got the felt f95! I've started training as of last week but am nowhere near able to do the full distance yet!
  • Its an nice bike - hope you enjoy the ride
    Pain hurts much less if its topped off with beating your mates to top of a climb.
  • Is the 100 there and back?
    the deeper the section the deeper the pleasure.

    No, it's 100 miles each way! Staying in Tenby that night where the women will meet us!
