Did anyone else ride Velo Birmingham yesterday?
101 miles of brilliant riding on empty, closed roads in a fast moving group. Sunshine, dry surface, well marshalled. The best fun i’ve ever had on a bike! I was in the first wave and amidst all the “normal riders” some people went quite hard from the start to establish a bit of speed and pretty soon groups began to coalesce so that within a few miles we were on clear roads in a decent (smallish) peloton.
Thanks to TrainerRoad for all of those winter hours on the trainer meaning that i managed to finish in 4:36:53 for an average speed of 22mi/h

Anyone in the UK: - I’d recommend it for next year.
