Almost 20 entries on both qualifiers. Which suggests the 600 may fill up .. but who knows?!?

So, the Faffers 400 is done for another year – lots of tired-but-happy riders made it back to Didcot, several looking forward to PBP. Next the 600 …
We have just over 30 entries so far, more every day – thanks everyone.
Thanks also to TrailJunkies in Goring, who will be hosting the start, supplying tea-n-coffee (and any last-minute spares).

All but one 600k rider made it round, and no mishaps; congrats to everyone, especially those on their first 600! The results are on AUKweb, if you need the Brevet number for PBP registration.

  1. Sadly I’ve withdrawn from the Lincs Leadout, so now have a room going in the Lincoln Travelodge for 19 pounds if anyone is interested.

  2. Hello Hugh
    i’ll gladly take your room at lincoln if it’s still available?

    EDIT: room now gone. Matt
