Summary: Conditions were wet, raining, and cold (1 C). I wanted to do the records to get the 500 mile as I already have most of the others. I also wanted a good 6hr, 12hr, 24hr, and 500 mile counter for all those WUCA/UMCA 2018 Competitions. I used my EVO2Max Kronos + Nebula bikes and apart from 1 burger used only Hammer Nutrition.
Best Part: The best part was finishing
Hardest Part: The hardest part was all of it because of the extreme conditions – cold & wet!
No unusual happenings. I finished at 4:53:32.4 am on Sunday March 25, 2018
The clocks went forward 1 hr for daylight savings time during my attempt.
