Spring weather doesn’t come much better than what was dished out to us today; I trust everyone who didn’t take part in this event had something equally good going on – if you didn’t, you missed a perfect cycling day.
It’s a lovely route, tried and tested over the years, with the bonus in recent years of a good café stop at Kirdford. This is the route.
Thanks, Hilary (to coffee) and Laurie (the whole way) for your company, particularly Laurie for your excellent pacing. The headwind home was challenging, particularly when you haven’t ridden a 50 mile ride since last year; suffering has never been so pleasurable. And I did just manage to make it up my hill without getting off – hurrah!
