21-Mar-2013 : First 60+ mile cycle of 2013!!

Just done my first 60+ mile cycle of the year!! When I set off, I was going to be happy with just 40 miles. But since I was racing a mate via twitter. I had to keep going.  Also I wanted to cover lots of new roads. Which I did! Look at the blue on the map below! I think I will do, most if not all of that route again at some point. When I do first 100+ cycle of the year. Think I will use, lots of it.

I will now leave you with the route map, elevation graph, route statistics and photos.

  1. That looks a nice circular route! Hope you found some nice hills! I originally wanted to do 25 miles. Changed my mind rather quickly when I got to 21.

    1. Yes it’s a great circular route! Most of the route is on back roads or using the national cycle network. I am trying to use it more and more. Since I give them £3 every month. So want to see where my money is going :).
