N2S Test Ride 1


Richard Guthrie texted me this morning having successfully completed the new North to the South route organisers ride.  I will be taking his feedback on the route before finalising. I hope to get round myself starting this Friday pm so I’ll be doing the bits in the light he did in the dark.

In the “non competitive” spirit I will not be revealing his finish time, but I will say it was quicker than any of last years finishers by some margin.

So hopefully this indicates that the 2016 route is a bit less arduous**.

The new route includes a section of the WAW and crosses the peace bridge – so an ideal opportunity for you budding WAWA riders to practice your sprint finishes.

Looking forward to your entries.



** Or just confirms Richard is really quick!

Brownstuff 400

For those of you still hoping to enter the Brownstuff 400, the last real opportunity to get a long ride in before PBP, I’ll be accepting entries at the meeting in Mullingar on Saturday.

If you can’t make the meeting, but would like to ride the event that makes PBP look like a leisurely coffee shop spin, I’ll accept entry via email (david.bayley@gmail.com) up until Tuesday evening.
