So on Saturday 7th May I have entered my first “official”, “proper” Audax ride. I’ll be doing the Four Rivers Ride which is 215km riding west from Wem in Shropshire. The route looks like it includes a different route up to Bwlch y Groes the highest pass in North Wales from the one I rode up during my sabbatical, doubt it is any easier 😉
Still from there it is all downhill for the last 50km or so 🙂
The time requirement means averaging over 9.5mph including all stops which with all the climbing and my current fitness is going to be “interesting”.
