Here we go, sporting events for 2015 are now being inked into the disturbingly empty cycling calendar... better late than never!
|It all kicked off with a leap into the unknown from the historic Larpool Viaduct, whitby. Now part of the excellent 'Cinder Track' cycle route, linking Whitby and Scarborough via the old railway line.|
|One small step... as I have distinct anxiety about heights (hence the end of my bouldering escapades) this was a big deal!|
|Please ignore the less than slick abseiling skills - hands everywhere but the correct place!|
Event #1... Born-Survivor - The Lake District 2015 with Team RM Fitness.
|Check out the mad course here: http://www.born-survivor.com/courses/|
|An early strength session at RM Fitness, Wigan, under the careful eyes of Sam D. It's all about technique. |
I will, I WILL ride up the cobbled HILL! I am a VIKING!
|Sam's idea of a fun finish after 50 minutes of full on strength training - this place is AWESOME!|
|This is NOT what it looks like. From the disturbed mind of Russ Meadow's - the brains and driving motivation behind RM Fitness.|
|Sir Wiggo following in my foosteps - My dream pick for Paris-Roubaix 2015. All fingers crossed that he wins the ultimate classic. C'MON WIGGO! Photo courtesy of RM Fitness.|
Event #2... Moors & Shores Adventure X Massif - 6o miles.As the Moors & shores AdventureX passes the magical Fyling Hall School it falls upon my Kona Singlecross and me to ride it for fun. Starting & finishing in the beautiful Dalby Forest - scene of many a happy hour Fyling hall cycling fun - this should prove to be a magical day in the Brooks Cambium, what with no need to worry about gears n all!
Here's the map...
and the Massif stats...
It should be a day of great fun and adventure - traversing the little trod trails of the majestic North York Moors national park.
Event #3... a long week in Germany with The Lost Boys
Details to follow!
Event #4... The Great North Run for the Finlay Cooper Fund.
The famous and huge North Eastern half-marathon. Time to put all this Jeff Galloway run-walk-run stuff into practice. My aims: to raise £300 for the Finlay Cooper Fund (my school's main charity for 2015), to finish in one piece and to enjoy every stride of the day. Why not join us?
|A Just Giving page will be set up soon. Please be as generous as you can in this time of insane austerity!|
Thanks for taking the time to read this little post. I hope it entertained, enlightened and perhaps encouraged you to join me on the road - and trench swamps - of this fine little Island.
