I’m totally over bike riding. Was ahead of the curve on here as a bike wanker, so need to find a new niche

not really


#7346

yeah i’d do it as a london long weekend because I’m lucky enough to never usually have to go the giant shithole, so not bothered about hotel costs or picking up pack etc :slight_smile:

@rich-t etape in annecy would be mixed blessing - logistically would be a dream for me due to staying at mates etc but i’d rather somewhere more exotic (ventoux or pyrenees) for the novelty


#7347

Those rumours of Annecy are pretty strong, so I’d expect that. They’ve not done a Pyrenean etape since 2014 maybe so they’re due one. Ventoux I doubt they’d do as the riding around there is ‘flat’. Not the most iconic stage of the tour for a very iconic climb.

One across the chartreuse would be amazing.


#7348

think this might be my next one

another 200km. can’t find the route anywhere though.


#7349

next year?


#7350

When I saw that in the calendar I was like WHERE IS IT I WANNA RIDE but obv it’s too far away.

Need to do a 200km this month, but I’m away this weekend, next weekend I’m leading a memorial for the dude who died, then I’m on the IoW doing Penge rides. So we either have to do a 200km on holiday, or leave it to the last weekend in October which would have to be a DIY. God what am I doing?


#7351

Double randonnee, obviously


#7352

Hard work doing RRTY


#7353

Can’t, think there’s a whole group of us booked on a specific ferry as we’re staying in the New Forest.

@rich-t there was a vaguely local one this Sunday just gone but we opted to do the fucking Paragon sportive, what are we like???


#7354

700km

don’t even joke about it or @plasticmike will try and talk us into it


#7355

starts and ends at hop hideout too, I can drive the team car


#7356

Can’t believe you two are supporting the Paragon twats.

@Aggpass, I’m officially the BW support car driver. Gonna have to fight you for it.

@japes know somebody who did this. Looks incredible

#7359

We’ll do a Penge sportive eventually so need to represent for when that happens (but yeah probably won’t do it again)

200kms in the SE over winter are so few and far between


#7360

Surely you can DIY though


#7361

Yeah but the temptation to not do it is greater.

Got a 200km mapped out for while we’re in Girona but :disappointed_relieved::disappointed_relieved::disappointed_relieved:


#7362

Need to be disciplined. I’ll coach you via internet forums and WhatsApps, otherwise you’ll end up like me.


#7363

kin hell.


#7364

Looks good don’t it
