Just four weeks until we set off for the 2014 edition. I've ridden most of the climbs this year, and so far, the surfaces are in good condition. The only ones I've skirted round are Old Lane and The Buttress. But only because I wanted to spare myself the joy of going up those.
A nice comment on last years ride:
"Favourite memories from 2013, in no particular order:
The descent of the A6033. Definitely leaning towards the road bike (with appropriate mods) for this year to make the most of that.
Racing JH, on the final ascent towards the Dog & Gun and feeling immensely strong right until I thought there was a massive final hill to climb, but in reality the finish line was near the bottom.
Quality beer and food afterwards.
And last, but by no means least, a bloody great day out on the bikes in a fantastic part of the world with some top notch people."
