    Selling 2x rack mount E3 tail lights, if anyone is interested.

    1. Brand new, never used. Comes with box and fittings, wire uncut. £25

    2. Used, full working order. Shorter cable which is easy enough to lengthen. £15

    Either can be supplied with the pictured Framebuilder Supply seat stay mount (shipped over from Portland) for an extra £15.

    That looks great - as luck would have it I just confirmed a place on APN which is the same weekend, though would perhaps rather be in the Italian mountains!

    As I live in SE London I tweaked the start a bit to omit actually going into Paddington - I think I picked the route up in Hounslow.

    My kids stumbling across me in full cycling kit drinking beer in the kitchen at 7am is another thing ... not again dad, etc

    Nice! See you there.

    Paddington Express I've DIYed a few times in the past. I'd do the calendar if you've not done a 400 before, just for moral support / riding buddies etc, plus the calendar sounds fun.

    Otherwise yes I recommend starting at like 3am near midsummer if you're able - it's nothing stunning until Wiltshire imo anyway. Plus I just prefer finishing 400s at a time I can celebrate with a beer after.

    The GWR Paddington Express is a good one, I think that's in April. Bristol and back, essentially, with lots of Brunel along the way.

    ACH's White Hart is also April.

    There's the London Circuit 400 which is fun if you want to draw a giant circle on Strava, though that clashes with...

    Fast Times in the High Weald 200 which is in May on coronation day and is filling up nicely - it's hilly for our part of the world but very scenic... : )

    I also DIYed Paragon's Oh! To Be In Kent last year and that's another nice route.

    Yes that's the Ultra Randonneur patch... I've got 7 left to do for that one : /

    There's also the international SR which might be a fun one, you do your 200/300/400/600 in different countries. I'd like to try that only using ferries...

    Ahh - do you mean every other year?

    I might look at some of the French mountain audaxes if it's not running in 2023...

    Anyone know if the Alpi 4000 might be running in 2023?

    Route looks great and it looks do-able by train, excluding the Eurostar bit.
