Looks fun!! :)
Was awesome mate!
How did you manage to loose Jez???))
Lol we lost Tony as he followed a group of riders who took a wrong turn. Then ages later we had to do a single track mtb loop and Jez missed the turn and got lost. At the end of the loop Tony rocked up. Totally nuts day all around!
Sounds awesome, so gutted I missed this! Next year....?
Top stuff. The video is AWESOME!! I particularly loved the bit where Tony threw his bike down right at the end, I think that gesture alone, summarised the whole event for him! ;-)
haha thanks Jeff, yeah it was a lot of fun but at no point did i want to swtich bikes with tony lol.
Padhraic, there is an even more crazy event like this in Oct called the Bear Bones 200. Its a 200km off road audax style ride with 6+km of ascent! You know its crazy when they state "everyone must carry; Sleeping bag, Bivvy bag or a tent or a tarp, F & R lights and Mobile phone"!Time limit 36hrs. You fancy it?
36 hours for 200km???? f*ck that. You know it's going to be brutal when the "normal" time for an Audax 200k is 13-14 hours!! :O
Sounds like good craic, and I think I'm free that weekend! The only route is a gpx file though. I think I'd prefer the challenge of way marked OS maps. Ah well.
Lol I love the fact u want it to be more of a challenge! Awesome, places are up for grabs on the 1st July. Will keep u posted
