    Superb job David, top art work yet again!!!!!

  2. David Taylor

    One tries. Actually missed some turns so had to redesign as I went. Still, you can see what it's meant to be.

  3. Jonas Bower

    Amazing distance and what a long day in the saddle!!

  4. David Taylor

    My PB!

  5. Dudley J.

    Amazing! Distance, route, picture - everything! In awe

  6. David Taylor

    Thanks, I have another shorter one in the planning if you're interested. Probably won't do it for a while.

  7. Dave Bracey

    Cracking ride David Ps thanks for the kudos for my effort though my rectangle is blown away by your work of art!!

  8. Phil Wilks (Sotonia)

    Just posted this up on the Sotonia Facebook page, hope you don't mind! You really should come out on one of the group rides one day, they are a really nice bunch.

  9. David Taylor

    No, I don't mind, you can post it anywhere. When do you have the group rides, you never know I may be able to join you one of these fine days, as long as they're not too fast.

  10. Phil Wilks (Sotonia)

    The main club rides are 9am every Sunday starting from North Baddesley. There are usually about six groups that head off for different distances at different speeds so you'd definitely find a suitable group. Group leaders say where they are going and roughly how fast at the start (e.g. 60 miles at 16mph to Lepe) so you can decide who to go with. I'd try the "medium fast" group first, and then maybe the "fast" group if you're feeling like a harder ride. You'd keep up no problem, even the fast group is only about 18mph average. The Sunday rides are generally pretty relaxed with a café stop.

  11. Phil Wilks (Sotonia)

    I can rarely do the Sunday rides unfortunately as it means not getting back until 1-2pm. Highly recommended though - let me know if you need any more details. I generally leave Nomansland at 8:20am for an easy ride to the start.

  12. David Taylor

    OK, I'll give it a go, though Sundays can be tricky for me too (got to get a lie in sometime). If they're really 18 average, should be fine with that. I'll call you as and when.

  13. Phil Wilks (Sotonia)

    .... perhaps don't go off with the fastest group first time, just in case they're feeling lively!

  14. David Taylor

    You're probably right.

  15. Phill B.

    Epic... Well done sir!
