  3. Well, inspired by this very cyclists thread and the fact I have done zero in the last two years I dusted off the road bike and went for a bimble. Now smiling from ear to ear, good to get familiar with the back roads on the Wirral again this morning, now relaxing with a cuppa.

  5. Visit to the Lakes this weekend, up Kirkston pass, not as tough as expected but still a hard climb. Stunning views, quiet roads as its not peak season hell yet. Bike heaven.

  6. This event/route is worthy of a try, Kirkstone is 1 of the warm ups, Hardknott is the headliner though, a few clips on YouTube of motorcyclists unable to get up Hardknott and it’s 33% in places incline.:upyeah::)

    damn forgot the link to the event @mary hinge horse burger

  8. Jeez that looks like hell.
     
  9. It’s a very good day out, it doesn’t really start until 56 miles in though. From memory the record is or was 6 ish hours, believe it has been extended with an extra climb after Wrynose from when I completed it.

  17. Nice evening for a pedal. Shins are on fire tonight after being stung to bits by the ever growing nettles. Some routes will now be off limits until October now.

  18. New tyres for todays ride. Been riding the gravel bike for a couple of years now and only ridden on various 45mm tyres.
    Feeling brave and bought a set of 38mm, definitely a more bumpy ride off road, but seem faster on the road.
