I’m really hoping my name gets drawn out and I will be receiving good news come February……Fingers Crossed.
I have already entered a number of events next year, Somerset Hills Medio Fondo a 124km route starting and finishing at Cheddar Gorge and will take in the Mendips, Purbecks and Exmoor.
The 75 mile Lincoln Grand Prix Sportive again similar to the London 100 this is a warm up event for the Elite Lincoln Grand Prix and has the same finish up the steep cobbled street of Michaelgate to the Castle square in front of the Cathedral. This will be a tough climb especially after 75 miles riding around the Lincolnshire Wolds.
Also last but not least I’m combining my love of both Mountains and Cycling as I have entered the Etape Eryri. I will be doing the Canol route, 76 miles in and around Snowdonia, starting and finishing at Caernarfon Castle. The route will include the hill climb along the B4418 Drws-y-Coed road which goes from Nantlle to Rhyd Ddu at the foot of the Nantlle Ridge, returning to Caernarfon along the Llanberis pass. This really will be a hard 76 miles but a challenge I’m relishing.
