Has anyone else signed up to do the London to Brighton Off Road this year? Its on the 22nd September and its the official British Heart Foundation event. Myself and one of my mates are doing it and I wondered if anyone else from here is giving it a go? Its only 74 miles!

It’s been on my list for a while, but sadly it’s on Mrs Twisters birthday. It could be a bit awkward.

Whilst I can’t do it this year I’d be interested to hear what you think of it. Maybe there’s a Retrobike ride/gathering in the making. Not on 22 September though.

Good luck with the ride. What are you guys riding?

What a pity I'm in France at a wedding.....rather do this (family wedding). It even goes right past my in-laws so would be perfect.
I hadn't heard of this before, so next year I think I'll be up for it.

I will definitely put up a post ride report, my mate is riding his 2011 Trek Fuel and im on my 2016 Kona Hei Hei race, definitely want a good level of comfort for 75 miles!
We did a 50 mile run from Winchester down to Queen Elizabeth Country Park the other weekend, fairly sore the following day and realised my setup wasnt quite right for a long trek, but hopefully a few adjustments and hopefully ill complete the full course!
