Can you email me the details please ? As it happens I might miss the
Peak Audax January 200 too (Eccleshall) as I may be on a work mission
to Colorado. There is a local ride I could do as aperm but I don't
really want to be in the hills so early on (unless it's going down on
skis)

I got my card back for the Denmead Summer Randonnee (August 13th) not
long ago. In the same post was that from the Upper Thames (November
5th).

Hmmm. Does it go /along/ the Ridgeway path? If it does, I shall be
staying in bed...

Is it an Audi A4?

No, it just crosses it twice. Having decided to call it the Ridgeway
the ancients obviously decided the best place to put it would be on a
ridge.

I wonder what the significance of the 100km per day is, which in
real terms is just 62.5 miles.

I used to cycle over 50 miles every day, to work and out to a
dance in the evening, ie 80km, but EVERY day, not once a month.

Then, at weekends I'd be out with the local YHA group and we
would do about another 120 miles, ie 190km.

To some people a 100km ride is a challenge - thats all. Perhaps you
should enter the Century a month challenge, a 100 miler every month, or
the 2000 miles a month challenge if you are still doing 80 miles a day.
