My target for the year was 20x20 which I completed last month. Looking at the map I'm guess I have about 300 miles of riding to improve up to 21 and given the weather I'm struggling with motivation. I'll probably try and work it in with the rapha festive 500 over Christmas.
There's a bunch of local tiles (10 miles away) I've not got yet around the north of Southampton but looking at the map and google street view the roads just look so horrible I can't face it.
This is my cluster
I know the feeling, upper SE here isn’t a good place to ride I’ve been forcing myself but usually try early Sunday to make it more bearable.
I’m planning the festive 500 so I’ll try add some on that. I’m thinking I might be able to get to 20x20
This is what mines looking like. It the stuff north of Winchester and Borden that I need to improve. But there relatively big out and back rides as it is, before I can start getting a new tiles and there's a couple that are going to require some offroading to get too.
The majority of the riding is lovely around the south downs. I keep thinking about trying to extend into the new forest, but riding through Southampton to get there is horrific. I've not been able to find a route that isn't a de facto motorway packed with HGV going to the docks.
I'm going to reiterate, again!, what a big handicap living on the coast is.
