Holme Valley 2013

A grinning idiot, somewhere in Yorkshire.
A third outing, in the sunny lands of Holmfirth. Last years attempt was marred by a puncture, caused by an ill-judged banzai overtake manoeuvre, straight through the middle of a rock garden! This year, I was on a mission, this time, a sub 3 hour time would be mine.

Technical climbs were cleaned, fast descents were bombed, my sorry arse was dragged up the climbs by my trusty Domestique, tyres didn't explode, Yay!
.... the post ride bacon butty never tasted so good! but I'm going to have a hell of a time trying to improve on my performance for next year.

Ride - Cake


"would you like cream, or ice-cream with that sir?" errmmm actually...
In an effort to get some miles, and climbing under my belt, yesterdays ride also included this impressive strawberry pavlova , oh yes! Serious training for the Holme and Hope valley indeed.
