Fred Whitton Challenge


The route: all 112 miles of it.

The route: all 112 miles of it.

I read the detailed route description for the FWC last night, and experienced a flutter of dread. It’s going to be a monster of a ride, and one which I have to some extent overlooked with my France sportives always on the horizon.

That said, I feel great. I’m sleeping and eating well this week, and my legs are popping after back-to-back rides on the weekend followed by a couple of days’ rest. AND I’ve hit my target sportive weight of 11 stone. 

I’m definitely going to need to take enough food though – the first feed station isn’t until 52 miles in.
