@Hippy: If you're after wine I recommend getting to Chester in time to interrupt the controllers evening meal - just after 6pm worked last time.





I'll do another recce soonish, but any thoughts on distance vs facilities are more than welcome.

Your issue with the small-ish control is only going to be on Saturday as everyone will pretty spread out by the time they're heading back on Sunday. As this is only 50 km into the ride I would guess a number of folk would looking to push on pretty quickly and therefore a well organised control with food to grab should allow people to move quickly through the checkpoint. Hopefully that would prevent the the control turning into a bottleneck, but with the possibility of a more leisurely stop for those what would prefer that option.

According to my gpx tracklog I spent less than six minutes at the first control (Chalgrove) on the way north in 2015.

The 70 m of gravel to get to the control is a minor issue - I'd rather that than bonus distance.

What on earth am I doing here on this beautiful day?! This is the only life I've got!!

Damn it's full - I should have signed up earlier. Is there any chance of getting on a waiting list?
What a lot of effort just for a cloth badge.

Don't tell everyone - that's the one I've got earmarked for my 600 qualifier (aiming for something different, having done the last two WCWs). Not open for entries yet, but I have a hunch it will fill up fast when it does.
