    I'm just going to jump on next year as it goes through Newport...may even join closer to Cardiff. Saves a bit of money and I'll probably be able to blag a finishers medal at the finish line.

    I don't get it? Why would you want the bling for something you haven't done?

    I see the attraction of jumping on but why collect a medal?

    I felt the urge to say something similar but felt: a) it was probably tongue in cheek; b) if he was serious, not worthy of dignifying with an answer.
    It doesn't matter how many times you fall down, its how times many you get back up that count.

    True- but there's form on here for blagging medals at the end of sportive. Cant remember who/where.

    Not going to get uppity about it - just don't get it.

    But you won't - you'll be missing the first [however many] miles.

    If I jump on somewhere on the coast road in Newport, it'll be less than 15k from the start and I'll continue to ride the long course so will end up doing more than the shorter routes and if I jump on in Cardiff, it'll only be 1 or 2k difference.

    I can live with that

    It's only 65 early bird entry. There is a lot of organisation and infrastructure involved in the closed roads etc, worth supporting IMO. Then wear your finishers medal with pride!
