As some of you may know I'm putting on a ride this May: www.primarypedal.org.uk - 20, 40 or 60 miles of Hampshire's loveliest lanes and hills.
I'm neck-deep in organisation, and during the time/motion planning got to thinking: how many marshals is 'just right'? What is overkill? I don't want to have people standing around in the fields for no good reason, but want to give a level of confidence/comfort that it's not an Audax where you are on your own.
So what's 'right'? Someone every 5 miles? Someone at each and every intersection?
Thoughts much appreciated.
