The times/distances/average speed all seem to be very similar for both days. Nice achievement.

Thanks. It turned out to be easier than expected but great fun. Comedy trying to get out of Dublin. Strava is interesting. I had nothing to do with the navigation!!

Just had a look at that now! Looks like more than 1 error trying to escape Dublin. Ye've added approx 16km by the time ye had got out of Adamstown, but maybe ye wanted something in the Liffey Valley before hitting the road too?

We added further distance somewhere in Kildare as well, but not via Kildare village unfortunately! The support van also got lost following the directions they were given so it was all chaotic. At least it was sunny so the mood was good.

With a stop in Kildare village ye'd have needed to get at least 2 bags to balance the handle bars.

We had an empty support van and plenty of credit cards (support van also got lost following the incorrect directions!)

Super job! Very impressive. What's up next?

Thank you. Nothing big planned yet but will do the Wicklow 100. Not crazy enough to try the 200 just yet. How's EOC going?

It was good craic but was a bit depressing that I was so super unfit for it. Really enjoyable though and the forests were just amazing! Does the 100 go up the Shea Elliot?

I don't think so, but I haven't looked at the route properly. I think the nastier climbs are on the 200 (but I could be wrong!). Well done you on EOC though. Great to hear you enjoyed it. Here's to many more for you!
