Might well be up for the 400 and 1000 (the others are at hopeless start/end times for us in the provinces <cue violins>)

as far as I know all AUK rides over 200k are currently suspended by higher powers than me; as for "hopeless start/end times", we usually offer scout hut floorspace for sleeping before and/or after the ride, though covid may still prevent that this year...TBC

Me too - I think it was the first 2021 ride I entered.

Not really sure how it will go, but the logistics are pretty easy for me (as long rides go). Hope it's not too "epic"  ;)

To be fair, I think we're all expecting headwinds outbound!
