No backing out now

12:41 pm Stupidity, Me, Bikes

Oh look, less than a week to go until the CLIC24 24-hour mountain bike event (Mendip Hills, 12/13 May). Which I’ll be doing all on my tod. And, what’s more, alone and solo. Well, not really alone, there’ll be quite a lot of friends and family around the place. I have a notion that there won’t be many supporters up and around at 3am, mind.

Had a last-minute sponsorship boost thanks to quiz night at the Griffin in Frome. Kev and I did middling-to-badly in the actual quiz (although against other teams of two, we won…), saved from abject humiliation only by the music round and TWO (count ‘em) rounds based on cartoons. Couldn’t remember the name of the city that the Jetsons lived in, though. Anyway, we triumphed in the no-skill-required raffle element of the quiz and thus came away with sixteen quid that has now found its way into the CLIC Sargent coffers.

Right, I’d better proceed with event preparations. Which mostly centre around trying to get my back brake to work and making an impressively-long shopping list. I don’t know if it’s possible to consume over 14,000 calories in a 24 hour period, but I’m determined to find out.

    Apparently that’s only 291 Jaffa Cakes.

    Which isn’t many really, only 1 every 5 minutes or so.. easy.

    About 190 bananas, too. So, presumably, 95 bananas and 150 Jaffa Cakes would do just as well.

    I notice you actually took 95 bananas :)
