An epic challenge with a great historical link
Best 24 hours on a bike…ever. A tough course made harder by the weather but great scenery and people to share the experience with.
Riding through Staines knowing I’d make it and seeing the family at the finish (not necessarily in that order)
1) Gear - good lights - both battery life and lumens & clothing for variable conditions 2) Train for the hills 3) be comfortable riding dark country lanes at night
Castelli Gabba Jersey helped prevent hypothermia and a pack of wine gums in Dorset went down very well.
Colnago CLX 2.1, 52/39 chainring with 11-27 cassette…gearing was just about right!
