After watching videos of Mark Beaumont and Jenny Graham on GCN, during a bout of Christmas Covid, an endurance challenge seemed like the appropriate next adventure on 2-wheels!
Absolutely the best ride I have ever done on a bike. I smiled from start to finish, even when my wife started singing (terribly) at 0230!
Cycling along the Dorset coast, with the rays from the sun setting behind us creating long shadows towards an utterly beautiful view.
1. Do it. 2. Keep something in reserve by thinking about the last 100 miles. 3. Feast at the excellent feed stops!
I used a small handlebar bag to store my in-ride snacks, it had an easy access top flap and could hold a good sized packed lunch making eating whilst in motion easy.
