If the worst happens just come along and you can do one of my laps! But I am sure that there are teams that would need another member....

Not sure of my other team members, but I'm taking a longer route home on the commute.
Normally it takes about 20 mins, 1hr 30 yesterday and 45 mins tonight. Hoping to get over the Purbecks tomorrow eve.
Being Captain I feel I should lead by example. :oops: :lol:

Sorry, interloper from another team here.

I can't find the new release now, but Wiggle released a circuit profile a while ago, and I'm pretty sure they said the lap was around 11k.

8.5 miles would be around 13.6k, so that would seem about right.

The profile they sent out showed a couple of equally sized climbs and descents (not too surprising), so it would appear there are a couple of climbs per lap.
