Wiggle South Downs 100 Sportive, Epic Course. Bit of a naughty boy as I rode the Epic Course even though it was closed at the last minute. Great route and scenery but most of the way it was hills into wind - ouch! Last 💯 mile Sportive of the season.

    Great ride 👍 I live in the area and read that the epic route wasn’t going to be used during to high winds. I’m finding your rides and blog very inspiring. As a recent convert to cycling I’m booked on some 2018 sportives and really looking forward to them. Keep it the hard work 👍.

    Thanks Colin and thanks for the kind words. If it inspires you to get out more and push yourself then I’m absolutely delighted. Totally loving my cycling and now looking for challenges for next year. Booked the London Revolution Ultra 1 day event so far. 187 miles and 10000ft of climbing in a day 👍

    Thanks Andy. Yes think I was the last. There were 2 other guys at the 60 mile feedstop but they were struggling and I think got picked up by the broom wagon shortly after. Both feed stops had all but packed up and the timed climb had stopped timing. Also no time at the end as they had packed that up too, so will have to Photoshop my own Epic Bronze certificate.
