In between being violently unwell, I spent today getting to grips with the route for LEL by converting the routesheets into a massively overcomplicated spreadsheet. Working off an average of 20kph moving speed, this gives the following headline facts:
- 1451 kilometres cycled
- 11,940 metres climbed (and descended, thankfully!)
- 73 hours on the bike
- 38 hours not on the bike
- Currently aiming to finish with just over ten hours in hand, at 20:42 on Thursday 1st August
I’m hoping we can push the Morpheus to an average above 20kph, but that allows time for any mechanicals or p*nct*res we’re unfortunate enough to pick up.
The campaign starts in earnest!
