who's doing the Eddy Merckx gran fondo next weekend then?

by jezzzer   July 24, 2011  

wondered how many other road.cc folk around coming out to ride around with mr merckx next week....?

was hoping there'd be some camping onsite but apparently not, so will probably be driving down early on the day itself.

either that or might stay over here (http://www.alpinegrovetouringpark.com) with the mrs.

anyone else going to ride?

Won't be there, but just had a look at the route profile - I'm guessing the sensible plan is to keep something in reserve for the last few miles - nasty kick up there Devil

Have fun!

yeah ... 2km of climbing all in :-S

wondering if my decision to ride it fixed might turn out to be one that I regretted.

i'll look out for you, punk and monk. i'll most likely be in my fake road.cc-kuota kit that i picked up in a market in beijing Smile

I'm down to ride (no.043) providing I can shake off this stomach bug. The jurassic coast road from West Bay to Abbotsbury is beautiful in the sunshine, its quite lumpy though with a cracking descent in the middle. Big Grin
