The MacRide route has been published

Follow-up to Macride 2008 from Steve's blog

The routes are out. I haven’t looked at it in detail yet, so I don’t know if I’m going to find it hard work, or easy. I’ve put the 63 mile/100km route in Bikely:

Oddly, the route sheet calls it 104km, while Bikely calculates it at 108km (67 miles). Well, I supposed after that distance a few more miles won’t make any difference. Or else, those extra 4 miles will kill me, one or the other:-) Actually part of the reason for that is that a small piece of the route, towards the end, uses a piece of the Stratford Greenway which isn’t really road-bike friendly, so there’s a diversion which adds a little extra distance.

It looks quite a nice route, cycling through places I’ve never been before, so it should be quite fun. I’m now just hoping the weather holds out. It won’t be quite so much fun in the rain…

Finally, it isn’t too late to sponsor me if you haven’t already! Thanks to those who already have. The total is ticking along very nicely – I’m up to £400 so far.
