OK OK, calm down. We cant all be flatfish experts.

Anyway, thanks for the info;  but what's it got to do with training??

I'm entered. Entered as soon as I saw the details last year. Wanted something challenging to do in summer so this fits the bill. And I live about 2 miles from bispham. So see you all there  :D

That's right, I've been told I need a turbot trainer.  Although what a fish can tell me about riding a bicycle I am not so sure

With all this wet weather lately a fish can probably tell you quite a lot. Turbot training maybe the answer.

I've looked it up on Google, so it must be true, the fastest fish on the bottom of the ocean is a motor pike and side carp.

Meanwhile back at the event: I've managed to get the route down to about 1019 km but will try to knock some more off before the provisional route-sheet and event info' is due to be issued in March.

Entries still open for the time being due to notified DNSs.

I am not doing the ride, but I will hop on the rollers, just for the halibut.

accommodation booked now thursday till thursday (need some recovery)

my plan was:

Jan 200 done (Dr Foster's Summer Saunter)
Feb 200 (Malmesbury Mash)
Mar 300 (Making Hay ECEd)
Apr 400 (Brevet Cymru)
May 600 (Bryan Chapman Memorial)
Jun 600 (Mae Mr Pickwick yn mynd i chwilio am ddreigiau a chwedlau. (clasurol).)

and then this.

Does this seem sensible, are there any gaping holes in my run up? This is my first 1000 so a little nervous. How does one plan and work out time stops once we go to to multiple days?

Your build up looks just fine and very sensible.

As far as I see it, and I haven't looked in any great depth, we stop at fairly sensible distances at Hawes. 

From the website, day 1 is 270km (we don't start until 10am) - hard terrain, but that's going to be 15 hours for an average rider I am guessing - so back in for 1am ish
Day 2 - 355km - the terrain looks on paper to be slightly easier than day 1 and 3 (famous last words!) - even in easier terrain, this will be a long day, so I'd guess people would want to be on the road at 5-6am to be back midnight-2am that evening.
Day 3 - 280km - hard day by the looks of it!  Try for another early start and try and be back for midnightish.
Day 4 - 115km run in to the finish to be there by 1pm, so as long as you're on the road by 6am you should have a good chance of getting the job done.

Looks a well paced ride to be fair.  It's not a race, so make the most of the structure and try and get a decent bit of kip each night before heading out early to get the next day done.  That's the plan I have anyway.  Sounds easy!  I am sure it won't be, but if you start falling behind on sleep from night 1, then things get progressively slower and harder!
Right! What's next?

Ooooh. That sounds like a daft idea.  I am in!

I'm intrigued by your use of the word "average" in that Day1 analysis.

(if you mean "average of the riders on the event" then it looks reasonable !  )

No gaping holes in your run-up.  Those are great rides, all worth doing in their own right.  If your question was how to best prepare for the 1000, I'd suggest replacing the second 600 with something shorter, like a fast 120-200 km. 

Marcus' analysis is very good but, for anyone doing a distance for the first time, flexibility is more important than a good plan as you can't know how you will feel at different times.

Quick update: the second, more formal route check will be taking place within the next couple of weeks, thereafter a provisional route-sheet will probably be available. Some of the controls are yet to be confirmed (no problems with the controls, just uncertain about 1 or 2 places along the route). Entries still open, due to already notified DNS.

There'll be limited parking available at/or around the start for the duration of the event. There's also a park + ride about a mile or so from the event start. More details on this will be available around March/April when the provisional event info' will be ready. Distance now down to about 1003 km. I'll be getting the jersey design back from the suppliers soon. Entries still open.

I entered this event a few weeks ago with trepidation. I'm looking forward to seeing the design of the jersey, which will provide an added motivation to finish the ride knowing that it will be soaked in fine memories.
