Title: A Rough Diamond, 300k - Bushley, March 16th, PBP qualifier
Post by: BlackSheep on February 04, 2019, 08:02:15 pm
Just about sold-out, one of the fastest 300s around. Easy navigation, evenly spaced controls and lots of other places en-route for pit-stops.
Plenty of room to bivvy before and after ride.

I'd signed up last year - really looking forwards to it - never managed a full 300km before so hopefully this will be my first to complete

I've signed up for this but am going to have to pull out. It's a lovely ride although I haven't done it at this time of year.

Mark. I'll send you an email later.

Last few places still available- but looking more than likely we'll be closing the fold doors early.

Still not booked accommodation can you give details on the Bivvy scene? Was thinking of camping nearby.

A field adjacent to a lane, with hedges on three sides, the other - probably an electric fence. You one side of the fence - a dozen or more frisky young heifers on the other. A gate way in the corner of your part of the field. The opposite side of the lane is the village hall, thete eill be access to the toilets.
