Long distance off road

Postby James1978 » 12 Feb 2013, 4:06pm

Hi, I'm planning on riding the south downs way for charity - Winchester - Eastbourne.. and then back again.... in one day! I know it’s going to be a slog and I know it’s going to take around 20 hours to do the 200 miles if all goes smoothly. Has anyone done this or similar or have any advice that's not don't bother you silly fool?
Thanks in advance
James

Haven't done it myself, but in the unlikely case you've not seen it already:

The 'route info' page has bags of info.
