Did you get it an x-ray done on it in the end?
The bike, or me? I've lost count of the number of x-rays I've had on me in the last 3 months. :lol:
The bike, I’ve enough seen yours to still feel queasy with all that mechano you now have installed!

I'm not even thinking about it to be honest. I don't even like seeing cycling gear around right now.

Not really in the place to even consider riding again (or not) in the future.

Stu, will there be any river crossings on the 200 this year? I have the option to get some ultralight wadders but I have to order them today.

Cheers

Probably one but I'd estimate that it won't be too bad.

Sounds serious, Rich. Being a much less frequent attendee on here, I missed the headlines. Hope all ok / on the way to being ok

Ps: does this mean my KOM’s around Brecon are safe for a while??

Cheers Ian. Yeah, getting there slowly but surely.

...and yes, I should imagine so, unless you count e-bikes. :???:

I'll be along this year.... but don't worry it will just be for a baby ride and to stop along your route for some photos.

I was wondering what percentage of you will be
A) bivi'ing out and aiming to finish on the Sunday at some time
B) aiming to ride through the night (sub standard for photos) to finish within 24hrs

And will you have a spot tracker or not so I can stalk you?

Please vote A or B please?

Ideally B, but more likely to be A. No spot tracker though sorry. Not sure riding through I'd finish in 24 hours!
May satan walk with you.

B but that doesn't necessarily mean a sub 24hour time for me!

No tracker

Im planning on B, but with option for A should night time weather / riding be grim. No SPOT tracker for me. Defo hoping for sub 24h.

Yeh I could help with the short cut to Newborough Forest from Bangor, cutting out one of the Menai crossings.
£25 a crossing if it's calm, £50 if it's rough :wink:

Cher’s Stu. I’ve ordered them. I was going to cut a hole in the bottom of them for the cleats to stick out, but I might just leave them as is and try walking in the sea and see how they work as over shoe waders. Did I say how much I hate getting cold wet feet!

This for me too.

Ideally would like to improve on last year's time (22h) but taking nothing for granted. :lol:

I'm gonna guesstimate from what I've read previously and say its around 18H by either IanB; Sean (from the island) or Slarge... I'm gonna guesstimate also that you're gonna complete it in sub20 :-bd
