It's on the 4/5th July

It's not just about the size of your cog.

You'll be far from alone doing it fixed. My friend Tim and I will be there, he fixed, me just single-speed... did it two years ago and it was a catalogue of pain but brilliant nonetheless. Get yourself some serious lights and pray for a rain-free night...

I must remember to charge my lights up! How long does it normally take riding on one gear?

When we did it I think we left at 8.30 and got there about 7 or so the next morning, including a hour stop in the middle...

Are there many hills? I only ride around London where it is flat. How much harder is it than say the London to Brighton ride?

there's no big hills to speak of, though the end is a bit up-and-down and that can sap your energy a bit...
