    I'd recommend the following to give you feels for rides in each compass direction:

    1) Take the Bristol to Bath bike path out through the two tunnels then loop back through Radstock > Chew Valley
    2) North out into the relative flat lanes around Yate and Wootton under Edge, back down the Severn through Hill / Rockhampton
    3) Mendip loop going up Burrington Coomb and Cheddar Gorge
    4) Over the bridge into Wales for some Forest of Dean gravel

    Happy to share detailed routes if any of that is of interest.

    Hive is a great 2-person game with tiles but no board

    Yep, the tell-tale sign is when they stop looking you in the eye.

    I've properly been corona'd. Being made redundant after being headhunted for the role 9 months ago. They're blaming corona which is convenient but not factually accurate. Tough climate to be jobseeking in. N-n time.

    On the website it originally stated "the fastest rider could need around 4 days."

    In the handbook that's been lowered to 3 days - perhaps that's a reflection of the Sofiane / no-sleep effect!

    Hope the new move down under goes really well mate.

    I have fond memories of riding the Grand Slam in a Day ride with you (in 2009?), in particular the stretch racing from Souths to Norths: getting pulled over by the cops in Farringdon, you smooth-talking us both out of it, and then back to racing, and still beating the rest of the group up to the Flask on Highgate Hill. Bright times.

    Safe travels x

    Thanks for sharing Mikko's post - really good, honest read.

    Yeah, the gap between Sofiane and Skinny has held fairly consistently so far today:
    09:20 | 61km
    11:50 | 63km
    13:30 | 67km

    Looks like both riders are going to switch to descent at a similar time to one another
