    Yeah the green beans never seem to rehydrate and are starting to get on my nerves too, nearly finished the tomato bag and won't reorder that but still enjoying the TGC!

    Raceface Half Nelson by the looks of it.

    Cool thanks, hope you enjoy!

    Tomato one is not unpleasant but is a bit bland, bit of nutritional yeast and balsamic vinegar perks it up a bit.

    Tried the TGC flavour, very pleasant and quite filling. Timing is way off though, still very watery and powdery after the recommended 5 min rest, about 15 mins in total before it took on a nice risotto type texture and creamyness!

    Got some of the new hot Huel arriving today! Kids back at school and wife at work now so can never be bothered preparing lunch for one at home but never really fell like just huel for lunch and usually end up with nutritionally devoid super noodles or a boring sandwich, hopefully this will be a good compromise!

    So off to collect a 1997 GT Timberline this evening. Hopefully in as good / original condition as it looks in the image! I have bought this on a whim off eBay purely because it is identical to the first proper bike I bought! Not entirely sure what I am going to do with it though, already have a PX Kaffenback dad bike for the nursery run and live in SW London so most off road I have is Richmond Park. What should I change / add to mean it doesn't just sit in the garage as my wife believes it will? Bullmoose bars and Maxis DTH to make some sort of commuting cruiser???? Any inspo and ideas greatly received!

    Excellent, keeping the forum representation / dot watching going!

    I haven’t entered this year, wife wasn’t to keen on heading back to Milton Keynes again but will definitely be going back again in the future. Love a race that involves puzzles for early entry! Will see how it goes, maybe pick up a last minute place and go properly unsupported next year....

    Let me know if you need any advice or the route gpx (although clearly rhb is the expert).

    Total was 110 miles. Just managed to get it on strava, watch ran out of battery and seems impossible to charge watch whilst activity was still running so ended up having to combine three files.

    Thanks very much.

    Nutrition went very well, stayed on the Tailwind the whole way without any problems, didn't get overly sweet at all, supplemented with Tribe Oat Bars, Peanut Butter Sachets, Hash browns, Greggs Vegan Sausage roll (mistake, not easy to digest!), Super Noodles and Oat Milk.
