I was one of the finishers, but for the first fifteen miles I was continuously wondering what on earth I was doing there. Having let my power drop to a more manageable level, I managed to persevere - and even found the last ten miles reasonably comfortable. One factor that helped with controlling my power was that I accidentally adjusted my rear mech such that I couldn't get into top gear; this meant that I was able frequently able to get into the top gear available and just hold it, without worrying about trying to get into the top gear I was used to.

A cute feature of the host village was a teddy bear hunt, and lots of giant straw teddy bears were scattered about. They were very imaginatively constructed, and fun to look out for!
