This is just a quick note to say that my info for the Invicta Audax had come through. You can enter on the day.

It starts 8.30am this Sunday (4th April) at the Old School Hall, Hayes, near Bromley, and is a century ride (100miles/162kms). It'll be a good base ride. There are 8 refreshment areas, not counting all the shops on route, and the minimum speed is 9.3 miles per hour. (Which leaves plenty of time for rests as we go).

Is anyone else up for it, or am I going to have to do it by myself? Crying or Very sad

It's still a bit too far for me, otherwise I'd have gone. Maybe later in the year.

Do you know where you're going? I've lived in Hayes for 10 years and I'm not 100% sure where the Old School is! I think it might be next to the BMW garage. I would've popped along to see you off but I'll be out cycling from early.

Yep. I'm all sorted (It's near Hayes St/Baston Rd). The worst part will be going past my house at the 8.4 mile mark. Temptation at that time of the morning!

P.S. Don't forget what I learned: Take a spare rear derailleur with you, in case you break the current one! Crying or Very sad

Connor / BB / Sue,

Thanks - had a good day, 100k was in fact two different 50k loops - first one done in the rain (wore waterproofs) second in a short sleeved top & shorts in the sunshine - Bizarre!
The organiser must have a mean streak, as there were hill, hills and more hills!
Good training tho' - we rode to the start and home again at the end, so 75 miles today.
Sad Got to go clean the bike now - it's absolutely lagged Sad

Connor,

They're not races - the correct name is randonee.
Just a social ride with checkpoints that have to be reached by certain times etc.
Lots of touring riders do them, so it must have been a novelty to see a couple on race bikes with tri- bars!

Check out Audax UK for events in your area.
