    Ah thank you, it felt straight away different to the usual arthritic issues. The good news is I spent a very long time on the bike on day two, over 13h with around 45 min pauses, anew experience in endurance for me.

    @hippy new found respect for not taking any brakes! Around how many miles is the Lanterne rouge at the 12h?

    Mountain biker: just a bit and you have 5 miles descent.

    Actually, can it be done as a Perm?

    Probably possibly but on the second day with some brilliant lanes I was mostly craving A roads. Surprised, best macadam in Britain by far on those roads in Wales.

    That is a bit hyperbole but yes it took three years from idea to finishing the ride today for me. Very happy!

    Sad to hear from #Rapha that you had to miss the ride today you had been planing for a while.

    Surprised myself, finished the first half of the autobahn version in bed after diner at 3.00am! And then rode day two mostly only on one leg and limped home.

    Day One did not feel too much effort (and I had been checking a lot over the winter not to overload my left knee) some peoples said pain on outside left knee might be ITB band? Going to buy a power meter to limit my knee load if the old problem, no Stages obvs.
