Road to LEL – a ride list

Here’s my projected (and completed) Audaxable rides… Based around one build to Bryan Chapman, then another to LEL.

Lead up to Chapman is basically two lots of three hard hilly rides with a couple of weeks in between to recover.

From there lots of flat distance rides, ideally with another 600 in there, and shorter weekend rides in ‘off’ weeks to keep sharp.

ACME winter Series Essex 109km 21 Jan  – Winter 100 (Fixed)

DIY  200km 18 Mar  (My usual spice run ride, to see how I felt)

The Dean, OXFORD, 307km – 25 Mar, 2.5AAA 3,500m climbing

The Shark, GREENWICH 202km – 2 April, 3.25AAA 3,200m climbing

DIY 200km  27th or 28th April from home

Green and Yellow fields, DUNMOW, 300km – 6 May (or 300 DIY depending on family, probably Tour of East Anglia)    Didn’t make that, but did a 150km solo training ride instead.
