Just a tentative question.

Does anyone fancy doing the Meon Valley Riser on 1st April. Just the 47 mile route, but ride to the event in Fareham?

The results are up for the MVR on www.sportstimingsolutions.co.uk for those who did it. I did see a few PNE club jersys around the route. It was a great ride with even better weather. Very Happy

I did the 47.5 mile route, was a lovely ride and perfect weather.

I had a pedestrian time of 4:21 but going round I knew it was going to be very slow. Was riding with my friend who was on a 20kg+ mountain bike. According to my phone I spent about 30 minutes in total waiting at the top of hills for him plus we made a silly wrong turn that added on about 10 mins. It meant I could enjoy the scenery but would of liked to have seen how fast I could have gone. I'm sure I'll enter again next year.

Nice to see some of you at the start and then whizz past me as I was dordling along Smile

At least you took part in it Toby. Doesn't matter how slow or fast you go. What is important is that you enjoyed the day. I did the long one and i was bloody knackered when i got home. We too had a detour for about 3 or 4 miles. I also had 2 punctures and i cant remember the last time i had one before that, typical Rolling Eyes Probably added about 35mins in total to our time.

Need to get more of these longer rides in i think to try and build up my fitness.
