2 x 4k if I can find a way of doing it that doesn't involve NVIDIA's fsck-up-your-desktop "solution".

Walk more, finish the 2019 Put Stuff Away Project, install new front door, lead the Panzers down Whitehall.

You’re going to need the lung capacity for 200 B&H.

I gave my uke away but I'm with you on the 200.  Got a date in view? Not for doing it together but maybe at the same time.
I've dusted all those old bottles and set them up straight.

Haven't seen one yet, will also depend on work/hols etc, but Mildenhall might be a good one for me if it's run again. or an ACME event.  In my case it's not the CV capacity that is the limiting factor, but the musculo skeletal around the hips/pelvis after last year's SMIDSY, taking longer than I thought to recover.

Annual consultant appointment on Monday, so another opportunity for combinations of 25kms here and there depending on how I feel and the location of railway stations.  If I ride there and back in full it's about 100km

Mildenhall's in August?  I want to aim at May with October at the latest, but it'll be an entirely private non-homologated effort.  I haven't done a 200 since 2017.

B&H made me feel sick. I stuck to Rothmans myself.

I'd have thought that an audax, especially in really abysmal weather, would have been tailor-made for a "that Condor moment" advert. :demon:

Only visit POBI once a day or less. We’re stuffed so there’s no point getting wound up about it.
