This makes everything as clear as it's ever likely to get day
Highest Annual Mileage Record attempt / Re: Another go .. TG??
« Last post by grahamparks on Today at 09:56:30 am »
I've been conflating the Kurt and Tommy records as similar targets, but Steve needs something like 199 miles/day for Tommy's and 206 miles/day for Kurt's. Unless we see an uptick in miles from his now very consistent 200/day it looks like he's only aiming for Tommy's.

Any links for a detailed route yet? The main TdF site only has the start/finish towns and a thick line on a map.

Try Cycling Weekly website.

Saw a photo in the Metro this morning of an artic blown over on the M6. :o

Glad you are OK, despite the idiots.

Quant a moi, I had Zero Mojo yesterday morning, and Butterfly gave me a lift all the way to work (then took my new frame to have the headset fitted at the Good Bike Shop - there's love for you! :* ).  Had a very good ride home, though, beating 19kph average for the rural section*, despite the lumps.  Managed the same again this morning, despite (or maybe because of) consciously riding 'within myself'.  In fact, I averaged 21.1kph up to the bottom of the last hill to the station, which is an underpass and a steep climb on a shared path.  In town, I passed hundreds of stationary cars to get to work in a very good time.

Incidentally, on my urban section of commute, there is a place with a shared path signposted.  It's a plain grass verge, with NO PATH AT ALL!! :o  Is the sign planted by anti-cycling provocateurs wanting to increase animosity on the roads?  Or Sandwell Council?**

* rather than the pretty consistent 18pointsomething averages I've been clocking

** I accept the difference between the two is somewhat slim

Wouldn't it be good if ...

Are there other solution options that would be more slick?

You could do this with a facebook group and create diary events which allow you to see who's attending etc.?

Not 'different to'?  :demon:

One's as good than the other.

The intranet comments feature at work has an option to "Show less replies".

Ta, I'll pass it on. She's not really after the organization part, though. She never used Lightroom when she ran Windows because of that.

Pretty sure you're still required to state which stages have or might have secret controls

wouldn't that rather defeat the point of secret controls?
Probably, but practicalities make secret controls in later stages difficult.

=               =                =               =               =                =

Secret controls must be mentioned on which stage otherwise because riders can choose their own routes between controls but if mention is made of the secret they'll know to follow that stages route.  Actually if it's difficult to actually provide secret check it doesn't matter as you've made sure they will follow that section in full
