I got a taxi back to the finish and told them that I was quitting.
If I'd had an extra 1/2 an hour I might have been tempted to push on, but to get to the end and still to fail, I just couldn't be bothered.
Oh well. Everybody said I was mad for doing it on fixed anyway. Average speed (while I was moving) of 8.7mph. There were some really quite steep hills on it. After 60km I was walking up anything steeper than a slight incline.
The first 7km included bits as steep as 17%, and I got up them ok. It's once I got about half way around I just ran out of energy in my legs.
Must do more training.
