    Would be ace, that. As with all Scot rides it looks like a total random chain of events that are out of your control that means it's either pleasant / very shit including midges, hail, hurricane force winds, fire, brimstone

    Also a Scottish SR would be another thing I'd like to tick off at some point

    I've never done it, can't be arsed to wait another 4 years until I'm 45 to work out if I might be up for doing it again, and I've not got anything else on that week in August.

    I understand there's more exciting ways to spend 1200km but like you say, quite like the United Nations of audaxers aspect of it all.

    Plus my dad's heard of it, so it makes explaining why I bothered to ride a bike in France for 84 hrs easier when we're all eating Christmas dinner later in the year.

    I should probably tick it off one day regardless due to the proximity to London...

    Yeah don't do Flatlands. It sounds about as fun as sitting on a turbo trainer for 36 hours.

    Who's on Oasts and Coasts this weekend? Looking like a 40mph tailwind across Romney Marshes :|

    @cgg I'd say you're really heart set on getting to PBP this year and would be bitterly disappointed if you miss it, I'd say 'do any other 600 than that one as your qualifier' as the DNF rate is so high.

    Oof, it's not a cheap do. I've not got a car so defo gonna train it up there, it's which is the least faff option for accommodation really... And the one that gives you the lowest sleep deficit at the start line.

    It looks like people tend to finish with very little time to spare, like an hour or so. That's if they finish.

    Sunday night I'm tempted to go for that slightly pricier/nearer room as I'm pretty sure I'll be wanting to go to sleep pretty quickly

    Christ, why I moved out of the Northwest is all slowly coming back to me now

    Yeah I'm considering that too, vs just taking a bit of very light bivvy gear in a frame bag potentially.

    It's all going to come down to the weather, which I'm just assuming will be 'shit' so I can be pleasantly surprised if it isn't

    It sounds very much the epitome of 'type 2 fun'

    Looking forward to riding it just so I can stop thinking about it, tbh!
