Thanks for the lovely ride to everyone we met along the way.
Decided to start at around 10pm this year to avoid waiting at the beach in the cold for too long. Worked a treat although the start was a bit lonely. Minimal cold beach time.
Did it fixed (not brklss) with a roadie buddy and felt surprisingly comfortable throughout the ride. I put that down to the 2hr nap beforehand and a diet of exclusively jellybabies and half a veggie burger at sudbury.
Saw a couple of other fixed riders. Amongst them a lady repping fixed beers jersey but on gears, a guy on a vigorelli who responded to a Das with "What is this? 2008?", and a guy with calf tats on a pink surly (steamroller?) who was going wicked fast.
Naked sea dip similarly excellent. 7/7 would do again.
