I'd like to do the 100 but think I will go for the 78. How long did you take to do it? A nice leisurely ride?

Also the ashford start point is probably less than a mile from home.

Think it took me toward 6.5hr the first year, and 5.5hr the second. Something like that. 78 miles including stoppages.

I'm going to try and get a group of my work bunch together for this. We've done the Tri-Hospice Before. It's a good day out.

This is a great day out for a very good cause. I can't make it this year but hope to do it again next year

Might as well do the 100 as if you can do 78 then an extra 20 odd isn't going to kill you Wink

*disclaimer - last year I wasn't feeling great and the extra 20 odd nearly killed me

May be close to home mate but consider the longest uphill drag was from Canterbury to Ashford.... I woudn't want to do that at the end of 78miles & perhaps a consideration

Well no excuses now, the new road bike has arrived. It says you can change your choice on the day, so will enter and see how the rides on the new bike are going.

Also not sure if you've seen it but the people who organise the big rides also do a few smaller ones, a friend from work often goes along. They ask for a £5 donation and are normally friendly social rides with tea and beer stops.

Anyway there is a 70 mile ride on Easter Sunday described as a good training ride for the 100 May ride.
