Hi all,

The Meon Valley Riser is on 13th April this year. PNE had a good turn out last year. I was wondering if there are any takers again? It was quite a good turn out last year and we all rolled down to the start as a club. Here's the link

If Tom decides to do it try not to come off at mile 2 this year  Rolling Eyes

Cheers

I'll probably give it a go again Mark. Can't get worse than last year when I packed and went home.

Rich won't be there. The way he's talking at the moment, due to poor health, he's giving up the bike. Hope he pulls through as the brother is well fed up.

Hi Mark
If the weather holds off and I can get some miles in then I will probably ride it again this year.

One resolution I made last year was that if I rode it again then I would drive to the start.

This Sportive is probably the the toughest I rode last year and coming as early as it does I vowed then that if I rode it again I would drive to the start purely and simply because I can drive home and save those extra 30 miles and the cramp in my legs for another day.

Before anyone posts....Rule 5 I know!!  Embarassed

 Very Happy

I could be tempted into this, I'm still chasing down that elusive first gold sportive time and familiar roads are often useful for that!

I've just got my act together and booked myself a spot.
Needless to say, I won't ride from petersfield to fareham for the start regardless of how many club members do so Smile

Has anyone had any luck uploading the route to garmin connect? I've downloaded it off mapmyride but when I try and put it on garmin connect it seems to throw a bit of a wobbly...

I just made a garmin route of the course as an excuse to procrastinate. Here it is in case you want it:
