Sign in to reserve your place in this event!

  • i was looking at this thread thinking, hey maybe doing it fixed would justify the travel.
    there would be a mid-2/3rds bailout option from Brecon with a straight return to the start point.

  • Yeah I am waffling about bike choice as well, but anyway it's an important point for everyone if they aren't feeling their best on the day that as you say it's a figure of 8 so can turn back if the first 25/30 miles aren't going well, and after we start coming back east can stay south and cut at least 20 miles off the route (and some elevation if take some slightly busier roads)

  • i have only ridden the area once but i think the Brecon>Crickowell>Abergavenny b-road is not that annoying

  • OK I'm all booked in, heading up to stay over on Friday night and then ready to ride Sat morning

  • Are you panning to head straight home on the train post ride?

  • Ah no, am staying over the Sat night as well!

  • Great. Thought I was going to be Billy no mates in a premier inn on the Saturday night!

  • Ok who is in for this? I can't quite tell. I only ask as that may determine the departure time and eventual routes. I've got me, TTM and ElGonzo, is that right?

    As I'm now staying overnight on Friday (at a little air bnb, sorr TTM but I promise we'll hang out in the evening!) I'm not locked to the 9:30 departure, meaning that if who ever is coming fancied the 200km route then we could start significantly earlier to make most of the light etc)

  • Apologies, I'm not in a great place at the moment so will excuse myself from this one. Have a blast.

  • Premier Inn not good enough for you, huh?

    My friend Hugh is planning to join us. Lovely guy, very very strong rider. He’d be happy with either distance.

    Surprised not more riders for this though

  • To add, we’ll be driving over from Stroud and Cheltenham in the morning. It’s only about an hours drive though, so can start earlier if wanted.

  • Would love this, but have a running race in Cornwall that weekend.

    Fyi in Abergavenny, fantastic place to eat called Portico Lounge on the high street. Good food and lovely atmosphere.

  • Shiiiiit better sort out of my fucking front derailleur then and bring gears

  • No @cagimaha @pastry_bot @amey ?

  • .

  • i cant :( too much dad-ing going on, there were high level talks about this but they collapsed

  • That’s a shame

  • Fraid not sorry! Another time.

  • Did a couple of rides in this area this week. Some steep ramps at the start of the climbs and one to avoid is the Blorenge back lane climb from Abergavenny. The climb to Gospel was lovely and the 15 mile descent back to Abergavenny was nice on quiet roads, I imagine the weekends will be slightly more manic with car traffic.
