Hit the Downs MTB Completed 

Did the ride on Sunday, the longest purely off road ride I’ve done since I started riding 11 months ago.

Got a time of just over 4.5 hours, including a refreshments stop, which I was pretty happy with – an average of 8.6mph. The newly rebuilt rear wheel behaved flawlessly, as did the rest of the bike.

In previous events I’ve always known the route.. particularly the South Downs Way in a day ride. But on this one, although I’d seen the route map, I was relying purely on the direction signs that had been put up, and the marshals.

These were both fantastic, with just one section where some ‘over-keenness’ nearly took me off route. 

Great organisation, definitely one I’d do again.
