Paul Kirk Sportive and a day in the Peak District

Postby djrikki » 16 Apr 2019, 9:12pm

Evening everyone, another busy weekend for me on two wheels, Saturday I ditched my usual long distance rides and instead did some, shall we say more "leisurely" riding than of late - in the Peak District with the climb up towards Mam Tor. I think I just have to return this Summer and conquer Winnat's Pass - but for now I just keep avoiding it!

Sunday was a local Sportive for me starting from Brigg market place, it is one of LincSquad's annual events, the Park Kirk Sportive. I decided to commute from Scunthorpe to the start of the ride - which nicely rounded my ride up to 200km.

Always enjoy riding in the Lincolnshire Wolds - great scenery, nice rolling hills; shame about the wind!
