Just updated the National Cycle Network sub section of my website.

I had to re-uploaded every single photo. After flickr changed the rules on how many photos, you could host with them! I had over 6,000 photos, hosted with them. Now the max you can have is 1,000 photos. If you want to have more, you have to pay! Like I am doing to do that! So I’ve moved all the photos back over to my own web space!

So, at least I have full control over all my own photos again!

I’ve started working on a National Cycle Network photo map. I’ve used the network so many times, over the years for cycling, walking and while doing the End to End cycle back in 2009.

Still, got many photos to add to this map, but very pleased with my process so far…

Also, done a page, that breaks the National Cycle Network, down into routes.

Well that turned out to be a extra good cycle! I was only hoping to do around 20 miles, but ended up doing 33.53 miles, making it my longest cycle of 2019! Also cycled up a hill, I’ve never done before! It was 12%, so looking forward to doing that one again!

That’s me completed another Strava challenge. This time the “Le Col 100 km | 200 km Challenge“.

I only did the 100 km part, which you had to ride 100 km between the 14th of February and 6th of March.

The 200 km part, you had to ride 200km in one activity! Which is about 125 miles! No way, I could do that. When the longest cycle, I’ve done so far this year is, 30 miles! And the longest, I’ve ever done is 101 miles.

Please do check out my profile at www.strava.com/athletes/gsvalentine and better still follow me. Oh and do remember, if it’s not on Strava, it did not happen! FACT!!!!
