I think a few people here entered the Bedgebury Forest 6 hour race last year. Well, it's on again.

Can ride solo :shock: or as teams of 2, 3 or 4.

Anyone interested?

That's it, rub it in!

I'm going away the day before, for a week! :roll:

Wondering if 6 hrs solo is doable. I've ridden that long plenty of times on the road, but concerned either my body or my Pace will break before the 6 hrs is up!

Well, I'm sitting at home having binned it in the red route last Sunday. Possible cracked ribs :cry: So, I won't be taking part anymore.

In that case, can I buy your Pace? :lol: :lol: :lol:

Seriously though, the course is not part of the routes you may know. It's very flat, twisty, in between trees, rooty. Fabulous course, specifically for racing. I'd be doing it if I'd been here. If the Pace would have broke, I wouldn't understand how. Not so much as a drop off!

Hi Mike,

Pace not for sale. Need to get back on the horse! And aside from a damaged X-Lite Enduri Ski bar end, the bike's all fine.

Downside is I can't start refurbing the P7 frame I bought the other day.

I guess they'll be running the 6hr race next year. Plenty of time to recuperate!

Yes, I hope so. Splatter Paint and I won the pairs race last year!
