That'a a new one...
Francis , there's a fair bit of interest in Audax/ Sportive rides
Are you into that?
Yes, Edward, I am into Sportives - the most recent one I did was the 110-mile Tour of Essex last month. However, I haven't done an Audax yet.
The Chase the Sun ride is in its 8th year. To increase participation, the organisers have incorporated another start-point at Richmond Park, making the ride 146-miles, for those who can't get to the Isle of Sheppey, or do the whole 205-mile route. I might have to opt for the Richmond start instead.
However, when the main objective of Chasing the Sun is to ride from sunrise on the Kent coast to sunset on the Somerset coast, I feel a bit of a cheat starting at 9am in London.
As a new member, is there anyone in LVCC who is planning to do this 205-mile ride?
The ride starts at Sunrise on Saturday (0435am); and I'm wondering whether someone has room for a chap and his bicycle, should they be driving from London to the start on the Isle of Sheppey, very early Saturday morning. I will be happy to contribute to costs.
Thanks for any replies!
