    I've found it less painful each time. My last audax was 600km and was no worse than I normally feel on a 200k.

    I've sent @cgg some more vertical shortcuts for next year :-D

    I didn't enjoy Saturday evening much but the rest was ace. Finished at 2 on Sunday in the sunshine and went to the pub.

    I saw a lady on a Boris bike do that at Hyde Park Corner (!)

    The weather forecast for the BCM is a touch damp. Possibly type B fun.

    Wow, thank you for all the route files.

    I'm excited about the BCM as it'll be my first 600. I am down to my 75kg weight target and climbing well so feel ready to give it a good attempt.

    Anyone else staying at the Severn View travel lodge on Friday night? If so say hello on Saturday morning - I'll be riding a silver Kinesis with a half frame bag.

    They oversold the event a little and are counting on drop outs to bring it back to 1500 riders so I wouldn't count on an places coming up.

    Has anyone got personal accident, loss of earnings, and long term heath care type insurance?

    I was pondering the wisdom of relying on the NHS and state support in the worst case of a really nasty accident that leaves me unable to work or walk.

    Helpfully the good people of BikeRadar have coined the name "jerket".

    You can wear one with your jeggings for that casual/sporty around town look.

    Something's in the water this weekend and all the drivers are behaving.

    One actually patiently waited to overtake until after a blind bend! And a HGV on the A605 gave me so much space he almost drove into the dyke on the other side of the road. (It was a Dutch HGV though.)

    Lovely to have your faith in people restored.

    I like the sound of a TT that takes the slowest applicants. Are there any 10s or 25s like that accessible by train from London?

    I've never raced a TT and don't have a TT biek. My fastest solo 40km took about 1:05 so not sure it's worth entering anything serious.
