Last Saturday I rode a 215K loop round Lincolnshire - sat down and on the big ring for 8hrs plus - give me a few hills anyday. Grimpy's not racing at the moment, concentrating on his preparation for the 3 Peaks he's spending a lot of time running up to Stoodley Pike with his 'cross bike on his back.
Here's a list of some not to be missed local events coming up soon.
Sunday 29th July - Good Companions 200k from Mytholmroyd Comm Centre 8am
Sunday 19th August - King of the Pennines Sportive - 100m from Skipton, taking in Malham Cove, Park Rash and Fleet Moss to name but a few - a must for any 3 Peaks aspirants.
Sunday 26th August - Tan Hill Audax, 200k
Saturday 8th September Daves Dales Tour 200k
Sunday 16th September - Tour of the Pennines Sportive.
