Bristol Bikefest

Posted: May 4, 2011 in 2011, Events

If you haven’t done it before, this is a cracking race. It has grown somewhat since I first rode it but the course is fantastic and if the atmosphere is anything like normal, then it will be another stormer. There’s a video of the course here:

To be honest, it doesn’t give you an impression of the leg busting climbs, nor does it give you any idea of the dust – when you get home there’s red dust everywhere. I have ridden it in wet years too and it can get quite messy (nothing like Thetford mud at all) and it seems to stick to everything. having said that, the course remained ridable throughout. Oh yes, in case you hadn’t made the connection, leg busting climbs means there are also fantastic descents. The best thing I can compare this event to is D2D before it got monstrous and lost its unique character.

More information here and entries are still available.
