GUCR sign up opens tomorrow for those who like a bit of canal plodding One GUCR is enough for me for now… I was tempted if they switched back to the normal downhill route

I preferred the uphill personally, i think the ending in Birmingham is better.

I said I wouldn't do any big races next year, and so far I've only entered one...

I hated the last mile or two as it felt pretty sketchy. You were probably through early morning whereas it was 7ish and lots of folks hanging around

The London finish isn’t exactly amazing but it is only 20 miles home from there for me

After crewing the Hambrough Tavern CP the other year, I think Birmingham is a lot less sketchy :-D

Got something to say?
