White Rose Classic Cyclosportive

Last weekend I headed up to take part in the gigantic White Rose Classic cyclosportive: 185km of torture across the (admittedly lovely) Yorkshire Dales, a ride I undertook with some trepidation, and completed in 7 hours and 50 minutes, with just a timing chip and some flapjack for company. Did I mention it involved nearly 4000m of climbing including the legendary Fleet Moss and Garsdale Head? That’s because I am trying to forget them.

You can, if you are having difficulty sleeping, read my rambling account here: http://omcoc.blogspot.com/2007/06/white-rose-classic.html I have now recovered from post-sportive fatigue, and am going to do another one in the Cotswolds this weekend.
