I am strangely attracted to this idea

If (as is likely) I manage to not enter, please PM me for phone details.  I live very near Culmstock, can provide food etc if asked ahead of time

thankfully I am on call this weekend so there is no chance that madness will prevail and force me to do something I would regret

the offer of a safe harbour remains however

Good that we have a baker's dozen, this is plenty to get on with the organising, whilst there is still room for more.  I suggest that we ask for a firm commitment and $$$ around two weeks in advance i.e mid-May. OK?

Could someone explain simply what this Crackpot thing is? I can't find any calendar or perm event of that name and though someone did provide a url at some point in the recent past, it just told me I was not allowed to access that page.  ::-)  So, beyond being a ridiculously mad ride, what is it? Where from, where to, when, how far, etc etc?
I do not ride a great big Mercian, gangster tanwalls, fixed cog in the back.

Around twenty years ago, Shawn & I were both working at Poole Hospital, when he gave me the prospectus for this little jaunt. There was some superb writing in this yellow-jacketed pamphlet.
Sounded very scary...

hi,
I'm still up for giving it a go, and am happy to share the costs of support ...although I've been away since the Porkers and have hardly done anything, so if there's anyone else in two minds and thinking they'll be bouncing off the back of the time limit, you won't be alone. My plan is to start steady, and try to get the odd nap while trying to hang on to an hour or so in hand. Really looking forward to seeing some new bits of Wessex.

What's the worst that could happen. Worth a crack. I'll be happy with anything over 600k still in time.

I'm out due to work  >:(

I'll chip in on costs though (well, I previously said I'd do it, and I'm treating it like DNSing a calendar event).

My steady build up went well up until the end of Porkers, it just didn't go any further. Im sure 75 hours of Wessex delights will address my current lack of conditioning.

As the day approacheth, I am excited as well as saddened that I will not be with you.

Have a great ride my friends but having only attempted the Hardboiled (and packed at 210k) I know that those contemplating this event are in a different league to where I am at the moment.

Keep us all posted on your journey awheel.

That's two of us then!

...I'm of a mind to keep going to the finish (if I can), even if it's obvious I'm going to be out of time.

There's a pile of bedding in the spare room. The food order is being done. Another feed likelihood has emerged on Friday by generous offer. More later. Full details early next week when I've woken up after Brimstone.

Looking well supported now. Space for more on this feast of Wessex gorgeousness. Riders please reconfirm as requested above if you haven't already. 😊😊

Any special requests or orders please message me at audaxrider@gmail.com. Smeth will be co ordinating final details with you of my whereabouts etc . I will be available for emergencies too in close proximity.

Look forward to seeing my ACH Audax fellowship on the day
