Dry roads, moonlight and a cheeky headwind. 5 riders set a fast pace up to Kettlewell, the back road from Conistone being a bit of a skills test with loose chipping’s a plenty still.
Hard efforts on the front of the group maintained a good pace into a head wind on return from Kettlewell.
We paid for early pace as one by one legs died and riders went ‘out the back’ of the group.
Very much a last man standing on final miles back to Skipton.
31 miles. 18.5 mph average this week with good effort contributions from everyone.
Thanks everyone for a cracking pace and some good speed training.
Didn’t quite stay together as a group but we’ll keep working on it.
