Yeah I totally got the distances wrong!! Did the 52km one - it was flat as a pancake. Very pretty and quiet roads. Met lovely Vicky P too! How did you find it msmancunia? Hope you recover from the op quickly singletrackanne!
I looked at that site when it was highlighted on BR but the events looked so expensive to enter. Are there other organisations arranging cyclettas?
p.s. Good luck with the ride! I'm doing a 60 mile event next weekend...
Hopefully next year.
Enjoy the ride.

A woman can never have too many bikes!
Thought it was ok - not done it before so yes, very pretty route, and will try and do some of the lanes again one weekend. My strava said I'd only done 500m of climbing in 52k!
I did think it was very expensive for what it was though. Too busy at the pamper zone thing to take advantage of that, and thought goody bag was a bit poor. Femfresh wipes anyone?! The thing that really surprised me was how many women had absolutely no road sense - riding three or four abreast, weaving all over the road, etc. The ride instructions mentioned it so it would have been nice if people could have read those, instead of treating it like a closed road event
So, done it, but probably not next year. Did the 52m Great Manchester Cycle last year and much preferred that - it was loads of fun, so doing that again in six weeks. I mean, how often do you get to cycle on a motorway?
