Never done this one before but I've been looking on the 'net for info and it isn't a single speed friendly course. Some sections of road lasting 25k apparently. :(

Looks like I'm going geared.

Thats simply not true, I know plenty of people that ride this singlespeed and even a couple of idiots who have ridden it fixed.

From what I've read it's gonna be too 'spinny'.

A hilly route is best for single speed, rolling hills at any rate. Long flat sections are best avoided if possible.

You ridden this before? On a ss?
