Having cycled this last year it’s definately one I would recommend to do again. It’s a great opportunity after christmas to be able to judge your fitness over a relatively flat and shortroute. However the pace can be a little high but it’s best to remain with a group of cyclists where you can enjoy the route without being too tired too quickly. Oh and I made the mistake of taking my winter bike last year, this year i’ll be bringing my good one!
