With less than a month to go until the big ride, the last two weeks’ training rides have been focused on hill climbs – and dealing with some serious heat!
The Ride100 organisers have now published the detailed route for the ride in August – and they’ve not pulled any punches! This is quite some ride; not just 100 miles, but 100 miles with some big hills! The middle 30 miles, in particular, look quite daunting, with four significant inclines, including the famous Box Hill climb but also the very nasty 14% Leith Hill. Ouch!
Finally, the three of us riding in the big ride managed to get out together this weekend. And we were heading for the hills!
