Sorry folks … been a bit busy and haven’t got around to doing a proper event report or saying ‘Thank you’ to everyone who turned up for the WVGL event.
So, having had a just over a week to reflect … I think it went pretty well, I enjoyed myself, the support crew were supportive and the riders seemed happy so, I think I’ll run another one later in the year!
Thank you to everyone to came along and made it such a great day. Sorry to those of you who got lost or took a slightly more scenic route than planned – I hope it didn’t detract from your enjoyment, my only regret is that those who missed the turn in Swanton Morley missed huge chunks of the off road sections
The method of signing the routes clearly caught some folk off guard so I have some lessons to learn around that, mainly due to communication rather than changing the system I think. I’m not keen on seeing the countryside plastered with bright yellow arrows and they are very labour intensive to put up and take down.
My refreshment strategy seemed to work well – plenty for all but not too much left over for me to gorge on!
The routes were all on public rights of way – there is just one short section of footpath on the 17 mile section (ooops) – so if you’d like to come out and ride round again I’m happy to make the GPS files available. There seems to be a slight problem with the website or FB accepting the GPS files though so I’ll need to get a bit of help from my techy friends before I can do this! In the meantime the maps are attached below.
Look forward to seeing you all again soon,
