Morning All

Just wondered if I'll spot any other PNE riders at the Bournemouth Sportive this Sunday? I'm doing the Epic (102 miles), haven't done this Sportive before but have heard good things about it.

Enjoy your weekend rides all!

This was an excellent Sportive - good challenging course with some tough climbs, really well signed & marshalled, and decent weather too. A thoroughly enjoyable day, I'd certainly recommend it to anyone looking for a local-ish Sportive.

I got round the 103 mile Epic route in 5hrs 39mins, average of 18.15mph which was enough for the Gold standard. Pleased with that - onto The Magnificat for me next, all 124 miles of it......gulp!

Cheers Mark! Very Happy By the way, turns out we have a mutual friend - I work with (and very occasionally ride with) Grant Robins. We rode Alpe D'Huez together in 2010 too - I gave him an hour's head start mind! Very Happy

Ha ha small world, yes Grant and I go back years. We went to school together and swam at Portsmouth Northsea too. He's a loon and a good mate!! I've given up trying to get him out on his bike!!

I remember the trip to Alpe D'Huez. I think you took in the final stage of the tour first then headed south? I was going to go but didn't for some reason?

Catch up on a club run or a TT Smile
