I thought that i would get this started with my little ride report. My laps were on the road 6.5miles each with a goal of 10 laps before wifey got home from work.

Lap 1
Bike – GT XCR4000 i-drive
Comments – This bike is almost there. Only ones small mechanical and squeaky Judy's to sort and it is good to go off road on. The suspension seemed surprisingly supple.
Moving time:-
Lap 6 = 31:16m

Lap
Bike – Proflex 856
Comments – A few niggles to work out before it gets ridden again. Gear timing, longer stem & slightly narrower bars. I can't wait to run it off road. It always felt planted, but maybe that was the Ground Control up front.
Moving time:-
Lap 6 = 29:48m

Lap 3
Bike – Pace RC100
Comments – No comment. I was going to spend most of the day on this.
Moving time:-
Lap 3 = 26:35m
https://www.strava.com/activities/3646865291

Lap 4
Bike – Muddy Fox Courier Mixte
Comments – For a girls bike its so fast. Maybe it was the scrunched up Graham Obree position that I was riding in.
Moving time:-
Lap 4 = 26:46m
https://www.strava.com/activities/3646865339

Lap 5
Bike – Muddy Fox Courier
Comments – Its a gate on wheels but worked faultlessly. And got a Strava segment 2nd fastest time
Moving time:-
Lap 5 = 26:29m
https://www.strava.com/activities/3646865356

Lap 6
Bike – Alpinestars AL Mega DX T26
Comments – If only I was 6” shorter I would love to ride this more often.
Moving time:-
Lap 6 = 26:17m
https://www.strava.com/activities/3646865386

Laps 7 & 8
Bike – Spin Cycle Easy Iron
Comments – Barro race tires explode off the rims at over 60psi tubeless
Moving time:-
Lap 7 = 24:21m
Lap 8 = 24:05m

Laps 9 & 10

Well, original plan was to be a mad bugger an do it solo, but what with a job change, house move and the Covid embuggerance, we decided a mixed pair would be the better option!

So Mayhem 2020 has seen the two of us spending the weekend packing our lives into many, many boxes...
