Neville Chanin Memorial 200

Anyone doing this? No idea who NC was, but a mix of Forest of Dean and Cotswolds with AAA points from middle England seems a good deal. Will probably cycle from/to home making it into a 300, not enough for ECE (not that I would pay for ECE anyway).

C'mon midlanders, surely this gem deserves more than 19 finishers...

Neville was a famed, hardriding tourist who was part of the audax scene until his death. A good bloke and several here joined him on his 'Easter tours'.

If you believe the Metoffice, there'll be tail wind in the morning on the way to Chepstow and then tailwind in the afternoon on the way back...
