Completed ny longest multiday event of riding from Lands End to John O’groats. Covered 1664km (1034miles) and 18023m (59130ft) of climbing in 12 days. Mostly around 100miles a day with a couple of shorter recovery days.
Horrendous flooding early on which made for some long days due to road closures.
Really enjoyed the ride and company of 8 other riders including a hand cyclist. Had excellant support from SportiveHQ which provided food/water at 25, 50 and 75miles.
Mostly used the 200mile gravel grinder plan to prep for the ride.
Sir Darren I hope some day you get the chance to ride the route for real. Stunning scenery and interesting to see the differences in field crop conditions across different Counties. Best cycle paths were just north of Perth. Best ice cream at Callestick Farm in Cornwall and best Dexter Beef cobs were in Cumbria
