Agreed, Dave...but Gary Mac could unicycle around and still win with his handicap. :D

Dam but you're right. How did he do that? I suggest; give him the trophy, cancel the event and decide which pub we will all go to instead.

Same list but apols to Jessica and Xavier as somehow missed off - please let me know if anyone else missing. A genuine ride from Gary last year set his handicap. Think he must have been on a unicycle with a flat tyre when he set that time. Best Simon

Do you need to have done the course before to get a handicap?
If you’re all about the destination, take a f#€king flight!

If you've not ridden the course before you'll get a base line handicap. However, there's an additional proviso that your final (after handicap) time can't be below the base.

So for this course, ladies get a base handicap of 12 mins 30 sec(??? shown as 12.3 mins). The base time in 47 mins - so even if you beat 59 mins 20, your final handicapped time will be 47 mins.

I rode parts of the course this evening to check for loose chippings following surface dressing works.

The event will still go ahead but there are 2 stretches of road where riders must exercise caution.

The first section comes at approx 8 miles when riders turn left from The Saltway onto Goosehill Lane. Be careful as you make this turn, the road you turn left into has been surface dressed recently & there may be some loose gravel at junction. Road markings are also missing at junction so be aware if there is any traffic making a right turn into this road at same time as you - do not assume you have priority. Despite advisory speed limit of 20mph on this stretch of road (which lasts approx 1.5 miles) it appears to already have been well swept of loose gravel & none of the chippings were sticking to my tyres.

The second stretch of road requiring caution comes at approx 13 miles in village of Crowle, immediately after passing village hall on left. Again the road from here until you join A422 road at Broughton Hackett has been surface dressed, about a mile in total. This surface dressing has been down longer than the other section but there is more loose gravel on this bit. Riders must exercise particular caution on the sharp bends immediately after the start of this stretch of road, a marshall will be posted here so please slow down here. Also exercise caution for the 2 left turns in Broughton Hackett in case of loose gravel. Again none of the gravel was deep or sticking to my tyres.

Riders will be warned at signing on before event so please heed warnings & stay safe.

In case anyone isn't familiar with the course it's the one we used in April, a description can be found at
viewtopic.php?f=9&t=8203
The marshalls available tomorrow will be located to warn of areas requiring caution not to guide riders around so please make sure you are familiar with route beforehand or load it onto your GPS device.
