    No MacDonalds crap, I expect he fancied a nice steak afterwards...

    Yes, and 96km on the descents! Maybe he won it on the downhills

    Did LWL yesterday. Was good until it got dark and started pissing down. That's the grrl's first 400k ride.

    Congrats to her. I copied one of her ride ideas yesterday, going round loads of local streets. It was actually quite good, better than I expected. Hardly had to stop for traffic. I'll do it again when I want to do a 30-60 min ride.

    Doesn't seem to be - so ignore that suggestion.
    I was hoping to do it. But had forgotten about it, until someone tweeted about it yesterday saying it was meant to be today.

    Was looking for my route when I rode to Lands End 10 years ago as I went via Exeter, but think it was a torn-pages-out-of-motoring-atlas job.

    Or just wear shorts.

    That's what I do

    Depends on the skinsuit, I have one I've worn for 12s and 24s with no issues but I have another I wouldn't want to wear for more than a couple of hours.

    @bananaskid has done a couple of tcrs in one, as have others.

    Toilet access is also an issue, but maybe not much worse than bib shorts.

    I wouldn't say any skin suit I've worn has been more comfortable than good jersey and shorts. The reason I'd wear one is for aero gains not comfort.

    Is there a decent London > Devon (ish) route? Recall seeing one on here but can't remember where.

    London to lands end and back audax was supposed to start today! You could have a look at that route

    Wow.

    I gave him a kudos as he only had 38. Most people get more than that for once up Box Hill.

    Great to hear of him doing this at 61!

    FWIW Westerley has cancelled all remaining TTs for the season on the basis that lots of the organisers and volunteers are vulnerable (ie old). Assumption was that the WLC events would be off, but good luck to your guys if they can get that one away!

    I've copied the link to our email group so people can shout if they are interested in riding.
