So I'm leading a small band of newbies on the Fred Whitton in May. I'm sorting them out with a training plan and am fairly confident that, if they do it, they'll be fit enough.
Has anyone got any gems of survival advice you would give them?
The Rawlinson Bracket ride is a hilly ride in the ‘Wilds of Warwickshire’ taking in the gradients of the Edge Hill escarpment. This ride marks a year since a close friend of ours, Nick, passed away in his sleep on the 24th of February 2012, aged 30.
This event has two objectives - the first is to raise funds for research into, and awareness of, Sudden Adult Death Syndrome (SADS), the second is to allow you to experience the type of riding that Nick enjoyed with a passion.
I am a re-born cyclist of sorts & I have been getting the kms in. I am trying to get them in and also to have a goal for next year. Aiming to ride 10000 kms in next year & also contemplating the Etape du Tour. So a few questions:
When is it likely to be?
How long is it?
What is the Act 1 Act 2 thing?
How does one need to prepare?
Which is the best website to get more info and sign up?
Is it only possible to sign up via commercial companies?
Any info will be gratefully received.
Fancy something a bit different?
A sportive with a race in it?
