RIDE REPORT:

  • i took a tumble in front of a car undertaking on a bridge - just totally misjudged the room i had, dropped into the gutter, boom. lucky the car was just inching along due to the traffic. knee's a bit sore but OK otherwise
  • lost my bit of paper with the questions on it for prize draw, no free swag for me. goddamn rookie mistake -_-
  • bumped into wade from cycling tips at the lights!
  • saw the beer tap bike, did not see it dispensing anything tho
  • saw some bro have his rear derailleur commit suicide in the back wheel, amazingly he got to the finish after some repairs
  • course included cobbled alleys, mud section (which i employed portage skillz on but then got blocked by a couple dog walkers) and horrible dirt 'half-berg' where the return of the cobbles was a relief, plus lap of velodrome to finish.
  • hope the pub where everyone went afterwards warned the locals about presence of 400 bike riders + associated odour
all in all, it was pretty lol.
