Insane. Not sure I could even drive that in 9 days without going totally bonkers.


#5305

My friends Jo and Gavin have scratched it seems

George is still going

The most extreme challenge I’ve done is a few measley 12 hour MTB solo races. Not sure riding for extreme distance like that is for me really

:frowning:

Was enjoying their Instagram feeds loads.

i noticed this week than an old friend of mine from school came second in 2013 and third in 2014. think he came second in a round the world race a few years back as well. absolutely insane.

i’ve entered the ballot to do ridelondon next year!


#5310

It’s the same date as Dunwich Dynamo…


#5311

oh cock, i didn’t notice that :frowning:


#5312

The long or short version?

I’m doing a half-marathon the week before, but should probably be recovered in time.

Aren’t Dulwich Paragon the club that Pengers dislike?


#5313

FTFY

#pengenotparagon?


#5315

Long, obv.

And yeah, we do, but their sportive is excellent (I did it last year), the food at the end is great (should be even better this year in the Velodrome). Everyone is willing to forgive their shitness for one of the only decent London sportives.

Also I saw a couple of them out yesterday and they actually waved at us

“HELLO PENGE!!!”

Nearly fell off my bike.


#5316

tbh the chances of anyone getting into the ballot for Ride London are so slim these days that you probably don’t need to worry about it


#5317

true!

otherwise i suppose i’ll just have to put in some endurance training and do ridelondon in the morning and get some sleep before the dynamo in the evening :roll_eyes:


#5318

or not, cos they’re the other way around. (not that i’d have been doing that anyway)


#5319

Cycle back from Dunwich straight into RL


#5320

only 540(ish) km all in. easy, right?


#5321

Especially with the new tarmac - they are designed for serious comfort and endurance :wink::stuck_out_tongue_closed_eyes:


#5322

You not read that LEL post upthread a bit? Sleep deprivation is a right of ultra distance cycling


#5323

ROFL sounds amazing, unfortunately it’s CX day for me. Next year maybe!
