Fantastic race. Bagged 2nd / 14. A naughty 5 minutes behind 1st place and 11 minutes ahead of 3rd. Super hot day. Quads cramping towards the end. Didn't expect it to be such a long one! All the checkpoints were cat related. I didn't realise London had so many feline sculptures.
The start was very unique. We didn't get handed the manifest at the very beginning. We had to ride off and hunt for someone situated at a random location on the Marshes and then begin our race after receiving the list of checkpoints from them. This process took me a little over 10 minutes... eek!
Shout out to @nekohomedelivery for a great organised race!
Next race in Hastings on Saturday 16th July.
Tomorrow ! ! ! ! ! !
I managed to redeem myself and snag 1st place out of 7 racers - Gabriel coming 2nd, who won the Neko alleycat 2 weeks ago. Hotting up nicely for the 100km+ race on the 6th August.
This race is coming up on Saturday 6th August. It's gonna be wild.
100km+ route, over multiple manifests.
37 racers confirmed so far - some coming internationally.
Think I saw quite a few people riding the Great Alleycat of London down Oxford Street today?
You probably did as there were 91 entrants so plenty of people sending it around town. One of the checkpoints was Gee's Court just off Oxford Street.
Yours truly came out on top with a 107km route, 4:20 elapsed, 3:51 moving. Apparently a ~30 minute gap to 2nd place.
