  1. as in a car – the front brakes are the ones that do the real work. to stop
    with any confidence you *have* to rely on the front brake more than the
    back. so, in order to not go over the handle bars you must manage how hard
    you brake and brace off your arms, sticking your bum backwards.

  2. anyone actually know the length of the climbs? i’ve heard the last one is
    the toughest?? just i live in cambridgeshire and the only hills we have i
    can climb are realatively short and not very steep,

  3. Ditching Beacon is apx 1.1 miles overall – but the hard bit is only about a
    mile 🙂 The challenge is to avoid the 90% of people that walk it – and
    hence provide an obstruction! I’ve done it 3/3 times – so it can be done!
    Check out my videos and there’s more on the 2009 and 2010 versions

  4. This comes across as very patronising and not that useful for first time
    London to Brighton cyclists who have cycled long distance before. Some tips
    on the course and where the tough parts are. Food consumption and water
    consumption are good, but when to expect them on the route would be better.
    Maybe some information on the start and how that is organised?
