Hi there,

I have signed up to ride the "giant" distance of this sportive with a couple of family members.

They emailed this description which makes the ride sound very pleasant:
"The GSD Giant sweeps through the picturesque lanes of West Sussex and Hampshire in support of a locally based charity, the AGSD-UK. Setting out from the magnificent Goodwood Racecourse the route circumnavigates the South Downs National Park between Petworth in the east and the Meon Valley in the west; passing through some of the prettiest villages and hamlets in the South of England. Cycling by green rolling pastures, ancient woodlands, river valleys and wetlands within one of Britain's most accessible breathing spaces you'll experience an exhilarating and challenging sportive and you'll be helped to recuperate afterwards with hot food and refreshments.
The AGSD-UK is a small charity that supports children and families living with Glycogen Storage Disease (GSD); a very rare group of genetic conditions affecting the liver and muscles."

I like that the entry fee will go to charity, and looks like its jointly organised by wiggle super series (http://www.ukcyclingevents.co.uk/events/gentle-south-downs-giant-2013/) so it should be well organised/signposted etc.

See you there?
