Hi there! Hope everyone who visits this little spot is enjoying the last few weeks of Summer.
I completed my Coast to Coast cycle ride Way Of The Roses in July (gosh - is it really so long?)
I did 190 miles in total in five days. This was due to having to leave and rejoin the route to get to accomodation. We had booked B&B's and friends joined us on the first day and others met us for lunch one day too. It was nice to have some support :-) I followed this guy all week....
Day 2 - Wigglesworth to Pateley Bridge Nidderdale Lodge.
Hard, hard, hard - a mahoosive climb out of Settle - 30% gradient. It was tough!! As you can see - sometimes it got a little too much, gggrrrr........but cooked breakfast gave the energy needed daily!!
Day 3 - Pateley Bridge to Skelton (York) Skelton Grange Farmhouse
Greenwick Farm. Another hard day on account of the rain - spent two hours in a pub waaaaiiitttiiinnngggg for the rain to go - IT DIDN'T!!!
Day 5 - Huggate to Bridlington! I did it! I got really emotional - totally unexpected.
