SC24R

Postby Wrath Rob » Fri Dec 21, 2012 12:31 pm

24 hour distance race around Silverstone on 14/15 September next year. Ever since I saw something similar in France I've been up for doing one of these as part of a team. Anyone else interested in a Team SCR?

I'd definitely be keen. After London to Paris 24 this year and the London - Edinburgh - London next year I'd be well up for it.

None yet. Though it will be along the lines of L2P24, just ride lots. Lots of organised sportives to save doing the same routes and getting bored, London-Brighton-London, Box Hill, extended Dunwich Dynamo. Are you keen?

As an aside, was that you on the Dolan in Parliament Square this morning? All in black with Craft toe warmers?

I'd have been in but am running a Raid Pyrenean that week so won't be able to make it.

Best of luck!

I am keen, though the stalking has put me off a bit

It was me indeed! Where were you? And how did you recognise me?

I was on the blue/silver old steel steed with lots of mudguards. Um, it says 'Dolan' in your signature and I remember you saying you don't wear a helmet. I did the math(s).

So let's SCR the 24hr and the LEL. There's also a possibility I'm doing L2P24 again. Oh gaaad.

Ooh, this looks interesting.

A bunch of us do the Le Mans 24 on inline skates every year. I'd hope that cycling would be easier :-)

Hmmmmm Interesting; would probably get a bit dizzy though going round and round.

I could be in though - been looking for a 2013 Challenge other than L2P.

I've got LEL down as my challenge for 2013 too, although not sure I'll be doing it at the same speed as some on here will no doubt be achieving.

Been tempted with the Silverstone one before, think you need to get a decent team together numbers wise and prepare for the 'dull' night-time slots more than you'd perhaps anticipate.

I'm interested in this despite it being a long way away. Having been part of a StrathPuffer team (same thing except on a hilly and technically challenging in places MTB course in the middle of the Highland winter) this can only be an awful lot easier (no changing out of wet kit in the back of a Transit at 2C). The only downside is that Silverstone is incredibly flat. There was/is a similar ride at Knockhill - much more interesting circuit to ride (and drive). Maybe there could be SCR A and B (etc) teams if there's enough interest?
