Dunwich Dynamo: I did it!
Dunwich Dynamo is this wonderful, unsupported, turn up and ride event that leaves London (Hackney) on a Saturday night and heads north east for 120miles (200km) to a sleepy Suffolk town - Dunwich. Numbers are 1500-2000 (they provided return transport for 850, and there were lots of people getting home other ways).
Anyway,last year when my mileage increased so I thought I'd do this year. Unfortunately, this year I hadn't been doing as much, but a week ago decided I would give it a go anyway. First imperial century, first metric double century (actually, I only did 191km in the day), all up about double my previous maximum.
Loads of different bikes: I saw a lot of Bromptons, had a nice chat with a Merc owner (he likes it, but said the quality wasn't up to Brompton), was passed by another Mezzo, saw a pair of Airnamals on the beach.
No penny farthings this year, but they have done it previously.
Took a quick snap of my ride when i got there. I cable-tied a bottle holder to the stem, got a Carradice bag with SQR for the luggage (amazing number of Carradice bags on the ride).
