Your crypticity rating (ratio of Views/Replies) was off the scale so I thought I'd better rectify that for you.

Its still pretty high

Hyper Randonneur = getting a Super Randonneur with 4 x 600 is my guess.

Congratulations to you all, too tough for me.

The Crypticity Rating is beginning to plummet, as the congratulations start flooding in.

Well done hyper ones.  I may be joining you depending on how much I can be arsed to do a 600 in late September.

Come on the Middle Road.
Or maybe we can do a 600 the weekend before so I get a warm up.
What's the crypticity rating?
Sounds a bit cryptic to me.
I certainly don't feel very hyper. I'm starting to think about doing some riding again.

Buggrit.

I have completed 3x600 this season.

I am supposed to be taking it easy.  STOP GIVING ME IDEAS.

 ::-)

Annoyingly I DNFd a 600 too.  I think I could've completed it if my heart had been in it.

Depends on which bit of the Middle Road - I'm more up for something that avoids flat lands of Lincolnshire etc.  For example, I'm was toying with an out and back to either Hay on Wye or Tiverton from home in Surrey.  Will all depend on how I feel when I get to the other side of a Pyrenean Raid next week.

Hay on Wye sounds good. Tiverton too, if we can avoid the busy roads.
Assuming we both start from home, where shall we meet up? I'm not sure where abouts in Surrey you are. But how about Membury services?
And which weekend in September?

Well done all! It makes my knees ache just thinking of all those miles  ;)

My knees are to shagged at the moment to even consider being super  :-[

oooh yes - I seem to be hyper as well. I did my 6th 600+ of the season last weekend and that's definitely the last. Probably.

One of them (Hellfire!!) had only 3 AAA points. Scarcely worth bothering with!

Ongoing congratulations, and thanks for the inspiration (which does help!)

Redhill.  Last weekend in September, if it happens - but lets not make firm plans yet as I may want to take a break from the bike when I get back from a cycling trip next week.

Very.

However, more importantly, it's 294km by avoiding highways to Builth Wells from here.  The germ of an idea is formed.

And now it's 74 but I'm thinking of spoiling it.
"Ode to a Stronger Rider" might be worth a bump, too.

You're not listed yet.

Still waiting for validation on the 4 600s I've done (BCM, KSW, Denmead, Border Raid) this season.

I was a bit slow sending my card back to Pam on the Deanmead 600 so it's possible that won't be validated (I've had no communication from Pam to say either way) in which case I'll have to ride the Spa Trek 600 in September.

(I thought Hyper was unofficial so there wasn't a list on the auk site anyway?)

Edit: just found the list - Marcus Yeo is the only one listed so far.

Forgive my niavitay, but I do wonder how often more than 4 calendar 600s have been ridden in a season.

Well, there were 17 HRs (incl. all ride types) last season.
