I needed another big challenge and the chance to ride through Cornwall, Devon and Dorset was a good incentive
A scenic but challenging route on mainly quiet roads
Seeing old cycling friends at the Dorset control
1. Carry some food as parts of the route is very quiet, especially at night
2. Make sure your bike is in good order and
3. Make sure you have a good level of fitness.
Good lights and having some sort of electronic navigation helps and a change of cycling clothes.
I rode a 1970`s claud butler- Electron, fitted with a 65” fixed gear, dynohub, with a schmidt edelux 1 headlamp
