To build upon 2015 I have set myself the following goals for 2016:
- Ride “The Struggle”
- Complete a ride from the Lake District to North Yorkshire
- Cycle 4000 + miles for the year
- Climb more than last year
The Struggle (http://www.ridethestruggle.com/) is the big aim for the year. This event is a 110 mile ride through the North Yorkshire Dales and bills itself as the UK’s toughest, newest sportive. It takes in some of the toughest climbs around North Yorksire such as Park Rash, Malham Cove and Two Stoops.
It will be my biggest ride to date and most amount of climbing within one ride also so I am looking forward to giving it a go.
It will certainly be…interesting.
Lake District to North Yorkshire – The route is still currently being planned so it there will be a proper write up when I eventually decide when it takes place and the route it takes.
There’s no pressure on this ride. I can just enjoy it as I only really need to be back by the time it gets dark. Or I get hungry.
This post will be updated sporadically during the year.
