British Heart Foundation Ride June 2005, 65 miles Winchester to Devils Dyke, Brighton.
Photo at start next to A31 outside Winchester. I rode on a rigid Saracen Hardtrak; my shoulders, arms ached for about 3 days afterwards ! Time 10 1/4 hrs 6.45 am to 5.00pm.
My Gary Fisher which I used for 2006 ride. More comfortable ride, same time, but no aches ! I have removed the bar bag and rack bag.
