A wheely good evening to you all from sat on a minibus on the M5. I am currently on my way back from a weekend at the Tour de Yorkshire. The highlight of the weekend was today’s sportive which with the glorious Yorkshire sun and countryside made it an epic ride.
Lots of people take part in sportives up and down the country every week and never fail to enjoy them. They are not competitive but equally when riding in a group there is always that edge to have the fastest climb up a hill or best average speed. Today’s ride was set in the glorious Yorkshire dales and took in the final part of the pro route which made it feel that extra bit special. It started and finished in Leeds and came over the finish line of the official race which made it feel very professional and like we were pros hehe!!
The route was exceptional and the organisation second to none. As for the hills…….wow!!! 6500 feet of elevated climbing over 129km made it a very tough one and a ride that worked the legs. If you have never done a sportive get out and do one as they are fun, challenging and most of all a chance to ride your bike in a professional setting with many others all wanting the same thing, a great day out on the bike. Here are a few pictures from the day and until next time happy riding and get booked on a sportive.
