"...and we loved cycling in Eden!" That's overwhelming response from everyone I spoke to at the finish of the Eden Valley Epic cycle sportive.
Track back 24 hours and I'm armed with a huge pile of bright yellow signs and an equally big stack of zip ties and heading out to sign the route of the Eden Valley Epic cycle sportive. The next 7 hours are taken up with a familiar routine of approaching a junction, locating a suitable post, put zip tie round said post, curse, put zip tie round the right way and attach sign, check sign is visible on approach, check junction from both directions for blind spots...and repeat. All this to ensure that 1,000 cyclists don't end up getting lost in Eden - a fairly big responsibility!
