Etape du Dales: 17 May 2009
110 miles of windswept moors, lush valleys, stunning dale views and remote villages, with over 11 000 feet of heavy climbing, and conversely 11 000 feet of brake-block melting descents, added to the unpredictability of Yorkshire spring weather, makes this a wonderful and challenging cycle-sportive.
Lucky with the weather this time (only 20 miles in the rain!), cool, and with tailwind for climb to Tan Hill but headwind for much of the second half. A must for Serpie cyclists! But get in quick, as the Etape du Dales sells out all 800 spots within 5 hours of going online in January!
