Anyone doing it? ride 813kms in 14 days starting Monday

Thinking about it for a good bit of Mileage before Mayhem but 813kms to ride in 14 days is going to be hard work for a fatty like me having to average at least 36 miles a day :lol:

Would have given it a go and be happy with half distance, but fear I'm coming down with another chest infection so need to take it easy for a bit :evil:

I think I might give it a bash.

I'll just throw my Garmin in the car when I go to work. I do around 2,700 miles a month, so a mere 813k will be a breeze.

What do you mean cheating?

Isn't that what all those KOM types do? :roll:

foolishly I have decided to go for it :roll:

So day 1 has resulted in rain, hail , torrential rain and gusts of winds :? I got out and put 20 miles in before I lost the feeling in my fingers and soaked wet through and beat a hasty retreat. :(

4% completed with 13 days to go!! :shock:

hmmmm looking at the forecast for the rest of the week for evenings the idea might be canned. Heavy rain every day :roll: :roll:
