Having done the first 2 parts of the Wessex Series a month ago (write up here ), I was both very excited and very worried about the Porkers 400. Excited as this ride has a reputation as one of the most rewarding rides in the UK and worried as it is also seen as the hardest ride of the series.
The year has been going pretty well for me so far. Anyone who's been following the blog (well done for enduring my drivel!) will have seen I have ridden a 300 in February and a 400 in March. My first 600 I had on the books was due to be the BCM in mid-May. But for various reasons, I had an idea to ride a 600 in April - my girlfriend being happy for me to be out of the house so she can get on with writing papers for her Masters, the Strava spring classics challenge (ride 13 hundred and something km in April). After a bit of thinking, I decided to ride the Green and Yellow Fields 300km event from Manningtree near Colchester and ECE it to 600km.
