It was 1992 the last time I did it...I was 17 and fit as a butchers dog!

I did it a couple of years ago, but found you had to walk some of it because it was so busy.

Will there be places on the South East team for Mayhem this year?

At the moment we have not sorted out a South east team, so yes.

Right, well, due to being swamped with demand for this, I've decided to cancel and do Mayhem instead.

I'm going to do the London to Brighton this Saturday instead, so if anyone fancies joining me I'll be leaving at about 7.30 from the Clapham Area with a work colleague (who's cycling back up after :shock: !!) . Let me know....

Did this today. About 4 hours. I have discounted this time due to all the stops we had to make at practically every junction to get the iPhone out to see where we were going!!! Bit disappointed in the time, as I'd like to have been sub 4 hours, but on the plus side I managed to climb Ditching Beacon....well, if putting my left foot on the kerb for 5 seconds, while this stupid car tried to overtake me, still counts? I think it does. It was such a pig of a climb. So chuffed though, as the last time I did this ride when I was 17, I had to walk it!!

Anyway here's the route:
