Couch to 200 Miles

Sun, 11 March, 2018

Our main ride series for the first half of 2018 builds to a re-run of the 200 mile County Boundary ride that 7 of us started and 6 completed in 2013.  It took us 23-and-a half hours, and was epic in every sense of the word.

OK, so you probably shouldn’t start this straight from the couch.  But if you have ridden a Century, or close to it, and want the next challenge, seeing the whole county in a day (and a night) without racing, this could be for you.

The rides:

25 March 50 miles from Witney – The Witney Nifty Fifty on the first day of BST (British Sycling Time)
29 April 75 miles from Grove – The Chilterns Explorer: Watlington, Henley-on-Thames and Wallingford
20 May 100 miles from Eynsham into the Cotswolds. Our Annual Century Ride
16 June 125 miles
Follow the Thames‘. from Wallingford to the source of the Thames then following the river downstream to return
7/8 July 200 miles from Grove, the epic County Boundary Ride over about 24 hours (pre-registration required)

Longer rides will be at a ‘moderate’ pace, similar to our regular Century rides (12-15mph on the flat), with stops every 25-30 miles.
