I am just wondering if you completed this ride in 1 day or did you stop overnight? I ve been riding 30-50 milers each week for a year now and want to train for something like this! looks great though well done!

Jamie,

I did this in one day - for a bet!
I averaged 15-16 mph on the road, not taking into account stops, so it took ca. 16 hours.
The route was designed so that any climbs were gradual, descents were on good quality roads, and there were plenty of long stretches (10 -20 miles) where there were no right turns or junction stops required.

As I know the roads from Tonbridge to Sandwich pretty well, cycling in the dark was less of a problem.
