Just a short post to celebrate the 2 chaps who rode 30 miles to meet me last night, and then rode the 30 miles home again, either towing me back or waiting for me to catch up. They did the 60+ miles on fixies/singlespeed, and their return journey was apparently faster than their outward one.
The picture is them at mile 40. I think the standard for the gauntlet has been set fairly high.
Strava shows they did 1,688 feet of climbing, 3:27 hours of riding at an average of 17.9mph. Fixed.
