We are 11minutes short of 11 hours since entry opened and we are 11 riders short of treble figures. To the 89 who have entered so far Thank You!
When I first started chatting about a sportive on this route with colleagues we thought that we might get between 100 – 150 riders at a push. We’re over half way to achieving that target at I’ve not even finished breakfast (at Tebay yum yum).
Dreaming up the course, working out the probable transport logistics, doing the risk assessment, getting everything into British Cycling for approval, building the website and tweeting tweeting tweeting – that’s the easy stuff done for us. Now the hard task of delivering a brilliant event.
As for you riders, you’ve entered what is probably the toughest sportive in the UK. The hard bit for you will be churning out those below threshold winter miles getting yourself to peak for this challenge. Of course I realise that for many this ride will be a training ride in preparation for L’Etape Du Tour or Marmotte or Maratonna. I’m gonna do my best to make sure the 3 Pistes Cycle Sportive becomes a must do ride like these.
Thanks for your support
