was thinking the same Ed

No way we could stay together over that distance, just not practical really.
Guess natural splits may evolve anyhow if some of us started together. I am not going to Sunday ride it, but not planning to flat out and blow up either. Prefer not to stop too much. Last time only stopped for 10 mins at the cafe stop on the 100k.

Happy to ride with any like minded souls :D

we should all meet up prior to start I think. Meet and greet and get a RB HonC picture together.

Ed - you're going my pace cos you're towing me most of the way . :lol:

good idea Gus - you can both tow me with spare inner tubes :wink:

I intend to just take it steady and stop for some cheese and wine at the halfway point.

Starting together and then naturally splitting up sounds good (and I suspect keeping such a large group together for long would be a logistical nightmare too).

Liking the cheese and wine idea although a drop of claret in the Camelbak may taste a bit funky. I take it we will have a proper bottle with corkscrew and glasses, none of this declasse plastic nonsense?

Kev and Gus, feel free to shelter behind my bulk as I lumber along at 5 m.ph. up, down and on the flat (interpretation of singlespeed - to travel at one speed regardless of terrain).

What Gus really wanted to ask but was too bashful to so "Grahame, where did you confirm that 67.5 psi is the optimum pressure?"
