Cheshire Cat Sportive a post mortem
I have completed my first (last?) sportive... As an inexperienced road rider the 3hrs 10min and 45miles of the event appeared to go well. I very much enjoyed the passing of some mega-money bikes ridden by MAMILs (Middle Aged Men In Lycra), even the one who'd split his shorts. Had I known the cut off from Silver to Bronze was at 3hrs I might have spent less time chatting at the food stop - my GPS tracker App. did have my 'Moving Time' as 2:53 so I could have done it, just.
