We’re one week away from the B*stard (next Sunday, 29th August) and it would be great to see a number of you there.
The route: https://www.strava.com/routes/9001154
Meet at the Pump Rooms at 08:00.
Depending on the number of riders, we will likely split into groups based on speed with the slower setting off 10-15 minutes earlier. I’ll reach out to signed up riders during the week about this.
My Wife, Emma and Mother-in-law, Val have volunteered to hold a feed station at Selsley Common (approx. 50 miles). They’ll have enough water plus sweet and savoury snacks for everybody. If you’re riding, please let me know if you have any dietary requirements.
At 85 miles we’ll stop for ‘lunch’ at Ruskin Mill cafe just outside Nailsworth where you can load up on dahl and lasagne before tackling the ‘W’.
From there we’ll take a couple more climbs before a strong finish up Slad. I fully intend to finish at Deya Brewery and hope you can join us for a pint – it is a bank holiday after all!
It’s going to be a tough, but fun day out so the emphasis will be on riding the climbs at your own pace and getting everybody round. Fuel up properly and bring plenty of food – this is not a ride to bonk on!
Finally, please please let me know if you intend to ride so I can organise the feed stop and groups.
Any questions, just shout!
