The only tandem and one of the few machines with zero carbon. The marshalls found that quite refreshing.
A certain Mr Culverhouse put in appearance and did pretty well with his useable leg.
Some big mileages for the bikes.
We trundled around to bag 215 (tbc) which is a 5 mile improvement on Jim and Vera’s national vets record set back in the 90’s.
Last ride in anger before the E2E.
A relief that nothing broke or fell off this time !!!

    We won’t be doing the 24 this year.
    But its unfinished business for next year.
    Need to have a trouble free ride to see what we can actually do.
