Brilliant day, and thanks again for all your work pulling it together, Alan.
It was my first sportive, but if I ever do one again, I can't think of it being bettered. Except of course, if I'd read a FAQ for muppets to tell me that a 5kg backpack full of random I-might-need-that sort of stuff wasn't a good idea.
The en-route cappuccino, bacon rolls, cakes, bananas, bananas, bananas, the amazing views and the stupidly fast downhills kept me going though.
And well done with your call to the weather gods.
